(Reuters) – The chairman of the Waffle House restaurant chain acknowledged he had consensual sexual encounters with a former housekeeper, but said she was now falsely accusing him of sexual harassment for her own financial gain.

“I am a victim of my own stupidity, but I am not going to be a victim of a crime – extortion,” Joe Rogers Jr. said in a statement provided by his attorney on Wednesday.

A Georgia woman filed a police report in late September that included lurid accusations of repeated sexual harassment by Rogers from 2003 to May 2012.
