Husband posts bail for ex-Scout leader charged in sex case; she's out of jail

The husband of former Boy Scout leader Wendy Rogers, who was charged with sexually assaulting a Scout in her troop, posted bail for her release Wednesday night.

Rogers was released from the St. Clair County Jail after her husband, Marcus Rogers, posted $10,000 cash -- 10 percent of her $100,000 bail -- at 5 p.m. Wednesday, said St. Clair County Sheriff's Capt. Steve Johnson.

Rogers, 39, of 1430 N. Smiley St. in O'Fallon, will remain free until her trial on charges of criminal sexual assault of a 15-year-old boy in her Boy Scout troop. There are no special conditions of her bond at this time, Johnson said.

Sheriff's investigators arrested Rogers on Sunday night after they received a "rape in progess" call from the 15-year-old boy's parents who came home and found Rogers and their son in bed together. The victim's parents detained Rogers until police arrived.
