SAGINAW (WWJ) – Former Detroit Lions’ wide receiver Charles Rogers was back in a Michigan court on Tuesday accused of threatening to kill his mother.
Rogers, 30, pleaded not guilty to charges of making a malicious phone call and conspiring with another person to commit that crime. The other person named in court is Rogers’ uncle, Ronie Rogers.
Allegedly, Rogers threatened his mother while demanding she return $100,000.
According to MLive , a police report written by Michigan State Police Trooper Jennifer Coulter states that Rogers’ mother, Cathy Rogers, told Coulter that Charles Rogers, Ronie Rogers, and Cathy’s sister, Debbie Rogers, placed threatening phone calls to her after she called Charles Rogers about a potential danger in him losing his house. Cathy Rogers played the messages for Coulter, the report states, and in one of those messages, Charles Rogers threatened to “blow her mouth out” and said he was willing to do “the time” he would face as a result.
There is no pre-trail date set a this time for Rogers and his co-defendant uncle.
