(12/28/13) The owner of a tattoo parlor in Eau Claire is free on a signature bond, after he was accused of secretly recording sex with a client.
39-year-old Jason Rogers of Osseo is charged with a felony count of capturing a nude image without the subject's consent. Authorities said Rogers had sex with the 29-year-old woman a half-dozen times while she was having a large tattoo placed on her back over a period of two months. Prosecutors said he reduced the woman's fee by 30-dollars for each time they had sex -- but they never talked about a discounted arrangement. Officials said Rogers' ex-girlfriend discovered video of sex with several female clients at his business. Police said the local health department received a complaint that Rogers engaged in unsanitary practices with the alleged sexual contacts. Rogers waived the state's time limit for a preliminary hearing on his criminal charge. He's due back in Eau Claire County Circuit Court on February fourth.
