When twenty-six-year-old Amanda Marks was short one dollar at a Walgreens register, eighty-five-year-old Clifford Rogerson stepped in to help. From there, the couple’s relationship blossomed. While the two held hands, kissed, and dined together, Rogerson also loaned Marks over $20,000.
Although Marks promised to repay the sum, she soon disappeared from Rogerson’s life. Not only was Rogerson’s heart shattered, but so was his retirement account. Rogerson filed a police report last May, and on Tuesday afternoon (Apr. 1), Marks finally surrendered at the county courthouse.
