OREGON, OH (Toledo News Now) -
An Oregon City Schools athletic trainer is facing serious sex charges in
connection with students.
35 year-old Mindy Rober was charged with 2 counts of sexual battery, a
felony of the third-degree.
According to Oregon Police Chief Mike Navarre, Rober is accused of sexual
conduct with two Clay High School students, both under the age of 18.
Chief Navarre says the allegations
date back eighteen months.
That's when Rober allegedly had sex
with the two students.
"This is a very
complex investigation. It's very possible other victims may come forward," said
Rober worked at the school for more than 10 years as an employee of
ProMedica, which has contracts with the school district to provide athletic
She resigned from her position immediately on Friday.
It's not clear at this time where the incidents took place. The victims went
to school administrators, who then informed police.
Rober was interviewed in her home on Friday and later turned herself in to
Chief Navarre says Rober was "very cooperative" when questioned by
police. He also says that Ms. Rober, "made it very easy for us to come to
the conclusion that we did."
Oregon School Board President PJ
Kapfhammer says another student has come forward with similar allegations and
expects others will too.
"I don't even want to begin to
think. It's just not real good. There's an investigation. I can't go much
deeper than that. I just know we're just scratching the surface of what we're
figuring out," said Mr. Kapfhammer.
Kapfhammer says he heard Rober was
sending naked pictures of herself to students.
"I personally came forward to advise
the high school principal and told him I heard some rumors a couple months ago.
Nothing as bad as hearing now. I asked him to look into it and he dropped the
ball," said Mr. Rober.
District Superintendent Michael
Zalar told Toledo News Now by phone that principal Jeff Thompson is out of
"When credible information came
out with the names of students, the matter was immediately handed over to police
and resolved in 24 hours," added Mr. Zalar.
Rober is free after
posting $20,000 bond.
Dr. Michael Zalar, Superintendent of Oregon City Schools, released a
statement on Saturday evening.
Text of Superintendent Zalar's statement:
"The Oregon Board of Education is aware that a police investigation
is currently in progress related to inappropriate sexual relations between an
athletic trainer and several students. Information was reported to school
officials who, upon receiving the information, immediately contacted the Oregon
Police Department. Athletic training services for the district are contracted
through a local hospital. The athletic trainer is not an employee of the
district. The matter continues to be under investigation by the Oregon Police
Rober's husband spoke exclusively with WTOL 11, saying his wife left town
after posting bond. He said he is shocked by the allegations, and she admitted
to him that she had relationships with students.
A statement from ProMedica reads, "Mindy Rober is no longer an employee
at ProMedica. We are cooperating fully with local authorities. Our athletic
training program has an outstanding history and reputation and we, in no way,
were aware of or condone any inappropriate behavior."
Rober is expected to be arraigned in Oregon Municipal Court on Monday.
