Virginia v. Rogers was a 2001 case from Fairfax County, Virginia in which James A. Rogers was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay $20,000 in damages after admitting to sexually assaulting three girls in 1964, two of whom recovered memories of the abuse 35 years later. The two women with recovered memories had their testimony against Rogers corroborated by the testimony of a third victim, a woman who never forgot the abuse, and by Rogers’ own admission that he had sexually assaulted all three girls in his home.
