Ex-trainer for schools arraigned in Oregon

A former ProMedica employee who is accused of having inappropriate contact with Clay High School students has been released from the Lucas County jail on $10,000 bond.

Melinda Rober, 35, was arraigned Monday in Oregon Municipal Court on two counts of sexual battery.

Oregon police charged her with the felony offenses after receiving information about alleged sexual misconduct with male students. She worked at the school as a contract employee through ProMedica.

During her arraignment, she waived a preliminary hearing and agreed to have the case presented to the Lucas County grand jury. Judge Jeffery Keller ordered Ms. Rober to have no contact with the alleged victims.

ProMedica officials in a statement said: “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.”

In a statement, Superintendent Michael Zalar said school officials “immediately contacted the Oregon police department” when they received information about inappropriate sexual relations between a trainer and students.
