Early years and Football

Born in Alaska, Rozier attended Cordova High School in Rancho Cordova, California. He then attended Aberdeen Junior College before transferring to the University of California at Berkeley, where he played defensive end for the football team. He was drafted in the 9th round of the 1979 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Cardinals (pick 228 overall).[1] He played in only six games before being released, allegedly for issues involving drugs.[2]

Yahweh ben Yahweh

After a series of petty crimes, Rozier found Yahweh ben Yahweh's "Temple of Love" in 1982. After first serving a six month prison sentence, he moved into the temple full time, and changed his name to "Neariah Israel", or child of god. In 1985, he decided to join "The Brotherhood," Yahweh's secret group, that required murdering a "white devil" and returning with a body part to join. Rozier would admit to killing seven White people to please Yahweh.[3] He was arrested and charged with murder on October 31, 1986. After agreeing to testify against Yahweh's organization, he was sentenced to 22 years in prison. After serving ten years in prison, Rozier was set free in 1996.[2]

Rearrest

Rozier was placed in the witness protection program under the name Robert Ramses. On February 5, 1999, he was arrested for passing a bad check for $66 to pay for a car repair. After finding Rozier's true identity, police discovered a trail of 29 bounced checks totaling more than $2,000, and charged him with a felony.[4] He was convicted, and under a third strike law, Judge Eddie T. Keller sentenced Rozier to serve 25 years to life.[5]
