I have to say that Amy Robar is far from a "good person." She is a self-serving, jealous, insecure, very sneaky woman who has allowed her "selfish, better than everyone else" attitude put her son in a very awkard legal situation. This is not only a teacher but a mother-- an educated person who should be a role model. I truly hope that while us taxpayers of Potsdam are paying for her to sit at home until the end of the school year, go to the casino, pay for her gastero bypass surgery and her many tanning sessions, she takes some time to think about how she has treated others and begin to turn things around.

Amy Robar-Jones is (was) a teacher at the school. Her son is out of school and has been for a few years.

Hey lets be honest. I do not know this teacher or her famiuly but I am a tax payer for the Potsdam CSD.

You are innocent until proven guilty, although, I do not know anyone who was arrested that isn't guilty of the crime they were arrested for. I am sure, being the state police, that they have her red handed.

Although she has been arrested, she is due her rights.

A thief is the worst kind of criminal, other than a child molester or a murderer. A thief is sneeky and not trustworthy.

If she did the crime, she should pay with her job and restitiution. For someone to say it is ok because of the economy is a scum bag themselves.

Although on second thought, how is this any different then when the Turbett girl got arrested in Watertown for stealing. She still has her job.

I guess it is who you know..........like maybe her dad?

If you bothered to know the truth... you would know that the case was dropped because she was found to be innocent, so why don't you get your stories straight you moron! This is why this site is such a piece of crap. Second of all, if you knew anything about how things work in the school, the school board doesn't do the hiring and firing of people they just vote on things and you can't vote on items that pertain to your interest.

Not a double standard just one was found innocent and the other one is innocent until someone proves she isnt. Not who you know... she would have lost her job if she was guilty the state decides that anyway not the school so who you know has nothing to do with it duh

Yay to this comment! I never could figure out why the daughter of toilet man "Hank" Robar thought she was better than anyone ---- her looks???!!!! Ha! Anyone can buy a tan. I always thought that Hank's toilet display was the family coat of arms anyway ---- very fitting, don't ya think?!! By the way, this sneaky "teacher" was also serving minors when she cashed out her son's booze while the underaged Caranza skank was with him. Good for all three getting busted. The Robars have always thought they were entitled ---- no matter what. About time we root out the rotten educators. This one tops them all!

Oh you are so foolish. No one is found innocent. Secondly, the principal was pressured to hire her on recommendations from her father. The Turbett girl's case may have been thrown out, if that is true, but she is still a thief.

Most of these comments make it so obvious how little people know about how things work in general. A principal being pressured? That can't even happen whoever crappyjack is is correct - boards have nothing to do with hiring and people are arrested for things they didn't do all the time that get thrown out! My brother once got arrested for shoplifting when toilet paper was under his cart! Hence innocent until proven guilty...

Walking out of a store with outside in hand and nothing else then claiming she forgot it was in her hand? Come on. Lets get real people. Lets call it as we see it. Her father is a weasel and did influence the powers that be to hire his daughter. Granted, I would do the same - but lets talk the truth here.

to joining in- you are one meanspirited piece of work. talk about kick a dog when its down. if you have any friends they better watch their backs- you are pretty swift to knife people. this woman may have royally f-d up-but let the law decide. in the meantime go wipe the venom off your chin. you seem to be an expert and evidently never f-k up yourself . you live the perfect life do you?a little empathy here would be acceptable because when people do this foolish shit their reputation is forever screwed. especially in small minded small towns. stealing is wrong no doubt under any circumstances. i wouldn;t trade places with her for anything. but i feel pity for them all. its called being a f-n human being with a heart. give it a try sometime.
