Judge to decide on Liz Rogers cop impersonation case Tuesday

BUTLER COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - A Butler County judge will make decision on the Liz Rogers cop impersonation case next week.

Judge Dan Haughey will issue a verdict Tuesday at 1 p.m. after Thursday's bench trial for the former owner of Mahogany's at The Banks.

The Liberty Township resident is accused of flashing a Cleveland police badge March 17 to keep her Mercedes Benz from being repossessed at the United Dairy Farmers store off Hamilton-Mason and Cincinnati-Dayton roads in West Chester.

Rogers, who owned the now-defunct restaurant at The Banks Downtown, handed a car repossession worker a wallet and "flashed a badge and said I am a police officer and I need to secure my weapon," police records show.

Prosecutors called three witnesses and played an interview between Rogers and a West Chester police officer Thursday.

In August, prosecutors offered a plea deal in the case, but Rogers turned it down.

If convicted, she could face a maximum of 30 days in jail.
