Babysitter accused of robbing Severance bank set to return to court next month
October 17, 2016
A babysitter accused of robbing a bank with children in the backseat of her car could settle her case next month.
Rachel Einspahr appeared in court briefly Monday to schedule another hearing in her case for Nov. 17. At that hearing, the case may be set for a jury trial.
Police say Einspahr on May 13 robbed a Severance bank while babysitting two children. According to an affidavit for her arrest, the children were in the back seat of her car when she drove up to the bank's window.
The affidavit said she passed the teller a note that claimed a man with a gun was threatening the children in the backseat. The note said the man wanted the money. The report said Einspahr drove away from the bank with $500.
One of the children later told police there was no man in the car, the affidavit said.
Einspahr was charged with robbery and two counts of child abuse, in addition to the 31 felony offenses she is facing, stemming from allegations she skimmed money as an office manager at two Greeley businesses.
