burnedbyrogers profile image

Kelly G Rogers was convicted of felony theft on May 28, 2014, and sentenced to 20 years in state prison. He surrendered his law license.

Kelly G Rogers was indicted by a Collin County Texas Grand jury on July 30th 2009. The attached mug shot was provided as public information by the Collin County Sheriffs office. For updated information as to the status of the proceedings. UPDATE: Kelly G Rogers is now doing 20 years in Powledge Prison and was just denied parole after 2 years in the slammer, You can his status by clicking on this TDCJ website.

According to the site, the offense took place on March 1st, 2005 and is a FELONY 1 charge. The charges include 26990034 Misapp Fiduc/Finan Prop >=$200,000. An arrest warrant was issued, then executed on August 14th. Rogers was booked, his mug shot taken and he was incarcerated. He was later released on $50,000 bond. Mr. Rogers is scheduled to appear on September 2nd, 2009 in the 380th District Federal Court, the honorable Suzanne Wooten will be presiding.

Ironically, Mr. Rogers birthday is listed as September 2nd, 1958. This is the date he's scheduled to make his first appearance in court! I wonder if the court will pause to sign happy birthday to this young man? Please continue to watch the Collin County website for continuing news and updates.

This is not the first time Rogers has been in legal trouble. In July of 2007, the SEC filed a complaint against Mr. Rogers for his role as a facilitator in a Ponzie Scheme. Mr. Rogers created a company called "Level Par" and solely responsible for investing with CR Davis and Global Finance and Investments. The SEC sued and won against Mr. Rogers who agreed to a final judgementthat permanently restrains and enjoins Defendant from violation of several codes from the Securities act of 1933. These codes include Sections 5(a), 5(c) and 17(a). Also included was Sections 77e(a), 77e(c) and 77q(a) and Sections 10(b) and rule 10b-5.

Mr Rogers was ordered to pay disgorgement in the amount of $100,000 plus prejudgement interest thereon in the amount of $3,360 and a civil penalty in the amount of $50,000. The SEC rulings can be viewed below.

A link is also provided to a letter issued to all Level Par investors on August of 2006. This letter announced the SEC had contacted Level Par officials to report investments made by Kelly Rogers into entities run by CR Davis and Global Finance. These individuals and entities were part of an ongoing investigation by the SEC for operating as a Ponzi Scheme. The letter also documents $200,000 Mr. Rogers removed from Rio Grand Mining (a venture capital operation) and invested in the Travis Correll Ponzi Scheme in 2004. Shortly after details began to surface, Mr. Rogers was removed from Level Par and several other entities run by Richard Weyand. Several lawsuits were filed against Kelly Rogers in the subsequent years and these will be fully explored in the coming weeks.

Documents can be downloaded at the Kelly G Rogers Report site.

Updates on these and other matters will be provided in the weeks and months ahead. Additionally, Kelly G Rogers personally filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy on July 27th, 2009 in the name of Kelly Gordon Rogers. This will be the subject of the next posting.

      Gowdy died several years ago and Correl was nailed by the feds. The only one I'm not sure of is Great thompson.

      Speaking as a former bankruptcy client I can tell you this guy should be disbarred. He has no clue on what needs to be done and how to do it. It is a shame that he suckers in people to take their money and does no work. He is constantly working on new scams to raise money. What a shame.

      It's about time!

      On Friday, March 19th, the DA of Collin County finally announced a trial date for Kelly Gordon Rogers, set for July 19th, 2010. This announcement follows a multitude of delays, dating all the way back to October 29th, 2009.

      One plausible reason for the delay was to give Mr. Rogers time to return the money. He either chose not to or he couldn’t come up with the money and now time has run out.

      The pretrial conference is scheduled for July 14th, 2010. Pretrial conferences are conducted in criminal cases to decide matters that do not inquire into the defendant's guilt or innocence. Under rule 17.1 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, pretrial conferences for criminal cases may be conducted to promote a fair and expeditious trial. In practice, federal and courts use the pretrial conference in criminal cases to decide such preliminary matters as what evidence will be excluded from trial and what witnesses will be allowed to testify.

      At issue will be Mr. Rogers involvement concerning the "Misapplication of fiduciary property" amounting to $435,355. The indictment details the transfer of money from Lionheart Energy to his personal account, QBiz, Rio Grande Coal, Pool Environments, Superior Soils, GS Investors, TNT Office Supply and Cash.

      As an interesting side note, TNT Office Supply was sued in December of 2005 and shut down by the SEC in connection with the Travis Correll Ponzie Scheme. Mr. Rogers was invited to participate in the Travis Correll scheme by Harry Robinson "Robbie" Gowdey, a friend. Rogers was the trustee of Gowdey's personal trust and not only participated in the Travis Correll scheme but also solicited others to participate. According to the SEC (Top of page 12). Rogers went on to create Level Par, for which he was sued by the SEC. He eventually signed an agreed final judgment and paid a $150,000 fine.

      At this point; “Fair and Expeditious Trail” has a nice ring to it.

      Rogers Burned Me Too 8 years ago

      I find it very interesting that the internet is being flooded by Kelly Rogers touting himself as a bankruptcy attorney yet in his own case he pleaded that he should have a bankruptcy attorney and won the right to spend $15k for a retainer in his own case. Sounds like I would like to use Kelly to represent me!

      Wow, I remember the name Quixtar from a place I used to work! Interesting!

      Currently, Quixtar has suspended Kelly Rogers and Carrie Rogers for a second time...pending termination. And for a second time they have appealed. If you would like the person who's collecting the data to present to the IBOAI board for termination, email me at and I'll send you her contact information. The more information they have, the better. He claims he never did anything, that it's a conspiracy against him. That's laughable.

      I remember the poor advice I took as his client once and it ended me in jail for 20 minutes. He wouldn't help me, so I hired a criminal atty, who got the case dismissed before it was even entered in to the cases or whatever. The Lord protected me from some real danger. I parted ways with Kelly after that round of cheatings. He did blackmail me to get me to stay out of Quixtar and not reveal the crooked dealings in the medical business. Sad, sad deal to see his dear children have to witness corruption like this that hurt so many lives. They are certainly in my prayers and so are Kelly and Carrie. Says they were in this all together.
