Three indicted for role in ex-Waffle House CEO sex tape case

Fulton County District Attorney office spokesman Dontaye Carter said in a news release that Mye Brindle along with her attorneys John Butters and David Cohen were indicted Friday. The indictment alleges Waffle House CEO Joe Rogers was secretly videotaped in his bedroom while participating in a sexual encounter with Brindle.

Brindle filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Rogers in 2012.

The indictment states the videotape was used by Butters and Cohen to force Rogers to pay millions of dollars to prevent the release of the video.

Brindle, Cohen and Butters are charged with conspiracy to commit extortion and conspiracy to commit unlawful eavesdropping and eavesdropping.
