  • Many victims had no idea what had happened until police told them about attack

A married rapist who sexually assaulting seven women while they were asleep and took 20,000 photographs of his victims unconscious has been jailed for 21 years.

Many victims of 33-year-old Jamie Rogers had no idea what had happened to them until being told by police about the assaults after their attacker’s phone was seized.

The builder from Hanworth, Berkshire, had his device searched for an unrelated matter but officers found 21,000 pictures and 600 videos he had taken of his crimes.

Jamie Rogers, 33, of Hanworth, Berkshire, had his mobile phone searched for an unrelated matter but officers found photos and videos he had taken of his ‘depraved sexual fantasies’

Rogers drugged his victims and sometimes even their partners following sessions of drinking alcohol at his home – inviting them to stay over, reported The Sun.

He also gave them tablets to avoid hangovers – which were actually date rape drugs. Rogers even filmed himself abusing one woman with husband unconscious nearby.

Investigators found he had attacked seven women between January 2009 and July 2017. Rogers pleaded guilty at Kingston Crown Court in London to 46 offences.

These were 12 counts of rape, 15 counts of assault by penetration, and 19 counts of sexual assault. He was jailed for 21 years, with an extended licence of seven years.

It took two years for Rogers to be taken into custody after his arrest. His wife had no idea what he was doing, and he split from her before moving to Sheffield. 

Scotland Yard Detective Inspector Simon Dowling said: ‘Rogers took complete advantage of these women to fulfil his own depraved sexual fantasies.

‘The victims in this case were completely unaware of what had happened to them until they were notified by police.

‘They were left utterly shocked by what was disclosed and they will have to live with the repercussions of this for the rest of their lives.

‘We take all reports of sexual offences very seriously and we hope this shows our commitment to bringing offenders of this nature to justice.’

The court heard Rogers – who has been placed on the sex offenders register for life – carried out the attacks while the victims were asleep.

None of them were aware they had been sexually assaulted until police discovered images and videos that Rogers had taken.

The discovery on a secret smartphone app came after Rogers was initially arrested on suspicion of having indecent images of children. 

The judge said Rogers was ‘a dangerous offender’ who must serve two thirds of his sentence before parole can be considered.
