Waffle House Sex Scandal sees CEO in alleged Blackmail case
As reported by The Associated Press and the Times Dispatch, Waffle House CEO Joe W. Rogers Jr. says that his former housekeeper, who claims that he demanded sex in order for her to keep her job, is lying and is actually trying to blackmail him.
The woman worked for Rogers from 2003 until 2008. He later rehired her as his house manager until she quit in June. Rogers says he received a letter on July 16, 2012 from her attorney. He claims she wants millions of dollars from him.
The police report identified Rogers as “a man in his early sixties, is very wealthy and has extensive holdings in restaurant enterprises and related entities valued at approximately $400 million.”
“As part of and as a condition of [victim’s] employment, and against [victim’s] will, Rogers willfully, repeatedly and with specific intent to harm and oppress [victim] required [victim] to perform sexual services,” the police report said.
A hearing for the waffle house sex scandal is scheduled for today.
The woman’s attorney phoned in this statement to The Associated Press. “We understand he’s obviously trying to spin his wrongful actions in some positive light,” Cohen said. “We believe attempting to attack the victim will only make matters worse and that the parties just need to let a jury decide the issues.”
“On June 29, 2012 she sent Rogers a resignation letter informing him that she could no longer suffer the indignities and dehumanization of his actions,” the report said. “She placed the resignation letter in Defendant’s sock drawer in an effort to spare Rogers’ wife from pain and humiliation.”
No charges have been filed against Rogers in the waffle house sex scandal and police are investigating the matter,
