The conviction comes nearly three years after he was arrested for stalking LaRue (best known for her roles in CSI: Miami and all my children) and her little daughter since March 2007.
LaRue’s daughter was five years old when Rogers began violently threatening her.
In a judgment note, as reported by Law & CrimeProsecutors determined that Rogers signed letters he sent to LaRue as “Freddy Krueger,” the fictional supernatural serial killer from the horror film A nightmare on Elm Street.
An investigation found about 37 threatening letters Rogers sent to LaRue and her daughter, including one in June 2015 that said, “I’m the man who’s been stalking for seven years. Now I have my eyes on you too.”
Prosecutors also said Rogers sent at least two letters “containing death threats” to LaRue’s “romantic partner,” for which he was not criminally charged.

He pleaded guilty in April to all charges: two counts of sending threatening letters, one count of making threats through interstate communications and two counts of stalking.
