2 lawyers, client indicted in sex videotaping trial of Buckhead’s Joe Rogers Jr.

A Fulton County grand jury has issued indictments against two Marietta attorneys and their client for their roles in the illegal videotaping of a sexual encounter between the client and former Waffle House CEO and Buckhead resident Joe Rogers Jr. in a case dating back to June 2012.

Attorneys David M. Cohen and John C. Butters, along with their client, Mye Brindle, were indicted on three counts, including conspiracy to commit extortion, conspiracy to commit unlawful eavesdropping or surveillance, and unlawful eavesdropping or surveillance.

The indictments stem from the ongoing 2012 case, when Brindle, while working as a housekeeper for Rogers, video recorded herself and Rogers engaging in sexual activities at Rogers’ Buckhead home as evidence of alleged sexual harassment by Rogers.

According to court documents, the video was taken without Rogers’ consent using a video camera disguised as a cellphone. Rogers sued Brindle for invasion of privacy in Cobb County, and Brindle and her attorney, David Cohen, countersued in Fulton County for sexual harassment.

Rogers said the grand jury’s indictment against Cohen, Butters and Brindle “has been a challenging four year journey that will now continue on both a civil and criminal track. “The actions of the District Attorney’s office are the next step in holding those involved accountable for their criminal actions.”

Brian Robison, a spokesperson for Mye Brindle’s counsel, saw the indictment differently. “Today’s indictment sends a chilling message to victims of sexual abuse and those who seek to help them attain justice,” Robinson said.

According to Rogers’ attorney, Robert Ingram, Rogers filed suit against Brindle’s attorneys, Cohen and Butters, when they attempted to extort him if he didn’t settle the sexual harassment suit with Brindle.
