A former Phillips County law enforcement officer who in January was the first of five indicted officers to plead guilty in a federal corruption case was given a slight break when sentenced Wednesday to 14 months in prison. Robert “Bam Bam” Rogers’ extortion charge stemmed from his stint as a Helena-West Helena police officer, a job he held after being forced to resign in August 2007 from the Phillips County sheriff’s office for stealing gasoline.
