Shatarra Rodgers a Brown Deer, Wisconsin worker at an assisted living residence arrested after scamming elderly man $5K after secretly recording him performing sex acts on her.
A Wisconsin residential worker faces the prospect of more than 30 years jail after allegedly scamming an elderly man out of nearly $5,000 after secretly recording him performing a sex act on her — footage she sent him when he demanded some of the money back.
Shatarra Rodgers, of Brown Deer, met the 78-year-old New Berlin man at an assisted living facility where she worked and the man’s wife lived prior to her death late last year.
Rodgers, who worked as a residential assistant at the Heritage at Deer Creek facility in New Berlin, regularly met with the man when he visited his wife, according to a criminal complaint obtained by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
The man admitted giving Rodgers, 25, food and money for gas during his visits, only to become suspicious when he began noticing large sums of money missing from his bank account that had been withdrawn via checks.
Upon confronting the woman over a $900 cashed check, Rodgers told the man, ‘I needed it’. Rodgers later sent him a cellphone video of the man performing oral sex on her when he demanded that the cash be returned, according to the criminal complaint.
The man then notified police, setting off an investigation into the alleged recorded sex act and other suspicious transactions in his checking and other bank accounts, including a $130 fee to pay for a bail bond on an outstanding warrant when Rodgers appeared on pending, unrelated felony charges.
Rodgers — who admitted when she was arrested on April 16 to making several of those transactions, including one to pay her rent — said the man had previously authorized her to use his checks to pay for her student loans, according to the complaint.
Court records obtained by WITI show that more than $1,000 was stolen from the accounts to pay for Rodgers’ rent, a visit to a spa and purchases on Amazon. She was also caught on surveillance footage at a bank in Mequon while cashing a $200 check stolen from the man, according to the outlet.
Rodgers is now facing charges of identity theft for financial gain, theft of movable property and capturing an intimate representation without consent. If convicted on all counts, she faces more than 27 years in prison. She’s also facing felony bail jumping charges from an earlier identity theft case, the Journal Sentinel reports.
