A female housekeeper and two lawyers she’d previously hired were reportedly found not guilty in Georgia on Wednesday after being accused of illegally making a sex tape between the woman and Waffle House chairman Joe Rogers Jr.
Mye Brindle, David Cohen and John Butters were acquitted after being charged with unlawful surveillance, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
The men were charged because they reportedly suggested that Brindle record the video of her sexual encounter with Rogers Jr.
In 2012, Brindle accused the chairman of sexual harassment and hired the pair of lawyers to help in her case, according to the Journal-Constitution.
The outlet said she testified that she believed she would’ve been fired had she refused Rogers Jr. The executive admitted to a sexual relationship but said it was consensual and denied the harassment allegations.
The jury had requested that the video, which was recorded in Rogers Jr.’s home, be shown on Tuesday, marking the the second time it was shown during the course of the trial, the Journal-Constitution reported.
