4th arrest in child prostitution case

Logan Roepke

By:  Newsroom

A fourth man has been charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl whose mother was charging men to have sex with the girl and her 7-year-old sister.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Logan Roepke, of McCook, had sex with the 14-year-old on two occasions last year.

Roepke posted bond Tuesday. His attorney, Aaron Bishop, says Roepke plans to plead not guilty, but he wouldn't discuss the allegations. The Nebraska State Patrol says the 35-year-old mother allowed at least seven men to have sex with her 14-year-old at least 20 times. Investigators say at least three men had sex with the 7-year-old.

The three other men arrested in the case are:  Alexander Rahe, Donald Grafe, and Shad Chandler.  The mother remains jailed on charges of child pornography and conspiracy to commit sexual assault of a child.
