He held that post for three years, leaving after the 2007 school year to become superintendent of the Tanque Verde Unified School District near Tucson. Immi g r a t i o n a n d Cu s t oms Enforcement officials said the 51-yearold Rogers was arrested Friday when he arrived for a "tour" in Mexico, allegedly including "relaxation intimacy" with a 13- to 14-year-old boy.
