A 14-year-old girl from Monroe County, Tennessee suffered the unthinkable when the man she thought was her savior betrayed her in the most disgusting way.
The young girl was being molested by her adoptive father. She told her mother, but her mom didn’t believe her.
In need of someone to believe her, she told Bryan Rogers of Wisconsin, whom she was in contact with via Roblox, Facebook, and an encrypted messaging app.
Rogers went on to instruct her to film the rape and send it to him.
“And I know you don’t want to do it but I don’t exactly want to see your dad rape you either. But we need clear video evidence.”
He also told her that without the video he could “get in a hell of a lot of trouble.”
She responded with concerns:
“I just can’t promise I’ll get the evidence.”
Rogers dismissed her concern saying:
“Then I can’t promise I can get you away from that I hate to say it but I can’t risk getting in trouble for you. If you get that video I can get you out of there but without it you will just wind up back with your dad and I’ll be in trouble.”
She desperately replied:
“I can’t stay here bryan I’m begging u plz.”
Rogers proceeded to tell her to have her phone already recording when her father came home.
On January 7th, Rogers received a 7 minute long video that includes footage of an adult man raping the girl.
He proceeded to drive to Tennessee to pick the girl up and brought her back to Wisconsin, avoiding surveillance along the way.
After the footage of the rape was found on Rogers’ computer, he claimed that he did not send it to law enforcement because he didn’t think it would stand up in court due to its blurriness.
The girl was reported missing by her mother on January 14th.
Her adoptive father and rapist, Randall Pruitt, stated at the time:
“It’s like having your soul ripped out of our body. You can’t think, you can’t eat, you can’t sleep, you can’t rest. Life has just ceased for us since the day she left.”
He was later arrested and charged with rape. Bond was set at $2 million.
As for Bryan Rogers, he was charged with sexual exploitation of a child and is facing a minimum penalty of 15 years with a maximum of 30 years in federal prison.
People are disgusted by the actions of these men.

41 year old man playing Roblox? He knows why he was there. We know why he was there. Lock them both up and throw away the key.— Human Parody (@human_parody) February 6, 2019
