Bryan Rogers, 31, of Madison, Wisconsin, is charged in federal court with sexually exploiting a child.

The Madison man convicted for persuading a 14-year-old Tennessee girl to record a rape and send the video to him was sentenced to prison Friday afternoon.

According to court records, a federal judge sentenced Bryan Rogers, 31, to 11 years and three months in prison, along with 15 years of extended supervision.

Officials said the 14-year-old girl was reported missing from her home in Madisonville, Tennessee in January, and was found at Rogers’ home in Madison 18 days later.

The girl was reportedly being sexually assaulted by her adoptive father and told Rogers about it in an exchange of messages through an online game app.

Court documents said Rogers asked her to send a video of the rape, which she did, but he did not bring the video to police. He instead brought her to Wisconsin.
