Man pleads guilty after filming himself having sex with woman and sending it to friends

A man has pleaded guilty after filming himself having sex with a woman who did not consent to being recorded and sending it to people.

George William Rogers, 26, of Perham Down, appeared at Salisbury Magistrates’ Court on January 26th, charged with sending by public communication network an offensive/indecent/obscene or menacing message or matter.

On October 22nd, 2022, Rogers took a video of himself having consensual sex with the victim, a woman in her 20s, without her knowledge.

He then shared this on a social media platform with friends.

Rogers was subsequently reported to the police and arrested.

Local crime investigator Dawson said: “This is a disgraceful act which is a complete breach of the trust of the victim, who had no idea the video was being taken.

“Rogers then compounded the breach by sending it to his friends without the victim’s consent, leaving the victim feeling completely violated.

“I’d like to pay tribute to the victim for her bravery in reporting it to us and her bravery throughout the investigation.

“I hope by publicising this case that people who recognise similar behaviours in their own lives realise the wrongdoings of their actions and the devastating consequences this can have on victims.”

Rogers was bailed ahead of sentencing on March 4th.
