Roger­son cleans up in prison

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS -

COR­RUPT cop and con­victed killer Roger Roger­son has been work­ing as a prison cleaner at Long Bay since he was jailed for life last year.

Roger­son, 75, has taken a job as the prison sweeper, which in­volves gen­eral clean­ing du­ties like emp­ty­ing bins and mop­ping floors, at the Kevin Waller Unit for aged and frail in­mates.

Sources say Roger­son has be­come “the leader” of the unit be­cause of his high pro­file and rep­u­ta­tion.

The sources say even some prison of­fi­cers have be­come “starstruck” by his pres­ence in the jail.

Sources also con­firmed Roger­son’s sharp eye for turn­ing a sit­u­a­tion to his ad­van­tage has not waned since his ar­rival at Long Bay. Ap­par­ently he has been reg­u­larly en­joy­ing us­ing far more than his al­lot­ted pre­cious tele­phone min­utes.

It is un­der­stood many of Roger­son’s fel­low pris­on­ers at the Kevin Waller wing suf­fer age-re­lated mem­ory loss, al­low­ing him to per­suade them into let­ting him use their al­lo­cated phone time.
