Coach’s Wife Accused of Sexually Assaulting Kids

The wife of a Meriden youth football who was coach charged with sexually assaulting children in Rhode Island is now being accused of the same thing.

Curtis Rogers, 37, was arrested last week. On Monday, Crystal Rogers, 29, was also charged. 

Rhode Island state police said the pair worked together to prey on children, whom Curtis Rogers had access to through his position as a coach for the Pawtucket Crusaders youth football team and a volunteer judo instructor.

At this point, police have identified eight victims between the ages of 12 and 17.
 
Curtis Rogers is scheduled to be back in court on July 7 and is being held without bond. His wife has been released on a $25,000 bond.
