Attorney General Names Longtime Prosecutor Charles S. Rogers as New Senior Assistant Attorney General
OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Scott Pruitt named longtime prosecutor Charles S. Rogers as a Senior Assistant Attorney General for the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office.
Rogers most recently served as Chief of the Multicounty Grand Jury Unit.
“Charles has impressive credentials as a prosecutor who has fought for justice across Oklahoma,” Pruitt said. “He brings great expertise and dedication to this office, and I look forward to tapping his knowledge of law through his expanded role.”
Rogers, 59, earned a bachelor’s degree from Oklahoma State University in 1975 and a Juris Doctor at the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 1978.
He has served Oklahoma as a felony prosecutor for 28 years, handling cases that include bribery, securities fraud, murder, perjury, embezzlement and multiple cases of government corruption.
Rogers first joined the Attorney General’s Office in 1978 before leaving briefly to serve as a deputy appellate public defender for Oklahoma in 1980. Over the next 20 years, he served as a prosecutor in the AG’s Office and for district attorneys in Payne, Logan and Oklahoma counties.
After General Pruitt took office in January 2011, Rogers was named Chief of the Multicounty Grand Jury Unit, where he served until becoming a Senior Assistant Attorney General.
Rogers and his wife of 36 years, Nancy, have two children and live in Stillwater.
