Prosecutors plan to offer a plea deal to the Cincinnati restaurateur accused of using a police badge to keep her car from being repossessed, according to attorney Clyde Bennett.

Mahogany's owner Liz Rogers faces one count of impersonating a cop from the March 17 incident in the parking lot of the Hamilton Mason Road United Dairy Farmers store.

Bennett says the plea deal could include dismissal of the charge. Rogers contends her innocence and said she never impersonated a cop, according to Bennett.

Records state Rogers, who owned the of the now defunct restaurant at The Banks, handed the repossession worker a wallet and “flashed a badge and said I am a police officer and I need to secure my weapon.”

Rogers filed a police report on the worker claiming $800 was missing from her wallet when she picked it up from police on March 17.

Another hearing in the case is scheduled for June 16.
