Police say Rogers invented the gruesome story to gain support for the homosexual political agenda. The “hate crime” took place as the city was debating a gay rights measure, the “Fairness Ordinance.”
Just before the event, Rogers posted on Facebook: “So maybe I am too idealistic, but I believe way deep inside me that we can make things better for everyone. I will be a catalyst. I will do what it takes. I will. Watch me.”
[Judge] Pokorny also demanded she get a real job. Rogers, in her mid-30s, currently lives on an allowance from her parents and mows her friends’ lawns. “It is time to give up this Peter Pan existence,” he said.
Rogers’ attorney, Brett McArthur, said she was looking forward to the community service and said the trial had given his client an enormous amount of stress.
