This is Love: Your Wife is Charged with Boning a Boy Scout and You Bail Her Out of Jail

The husband of Wendy Rogers sprung his spouse from jail Wednesday evening -- posting $10,000 cash on her $100,000 bail.

Rogers, a now former Boy Scout leader, was allegedly caught in bed Sunday with a 15-year-old scout with Troop 35 in O'Fallon, Ill.

According to the St. Clair County Sheriff, the boys parents returned home Sunday afternoon around 3 p.m. to find the scout leader in bed with their son.

As Daily RFT reported earlier this week:
Recognizing the O'Fallon woman immediately, the parents blocked the door so Rogers couldn't escape, then called 911 dispatchers, to whom they reported a "rape in progress."

The act was not technically "consensual," says Captain Steve Johnson of the sheriff's office, because the boy was a minor. He adds, however, that "it wasn't a situation where physical force was being used against the young man."
Perhaps those words from Capt. Johnson convinced Roger's hubbie to bail her out of jail. After all, it's not like he's technically married to an alleged rapist. His wife just likes boys in uniforms -- nothing that a healthy marriage can't overcome.
