A babysitter accused of robbing a bank with children in the backseat of her car will likely spend the next six years in prison after pleading guilty Friday to three charges in two separate cases.
Rachel Einspahr, 29, pleaded guilty to theft, forgery and attempted robbery in connection with a series of events including a May 13 incident in which police say she robbed a Severance bank while babysitting two children. In addition to the charges from that incident, Einspahr also faced 31 charges stemming from allegations that she was skimming money while managing a local business.
Michael Williams, Einspahr’s attorney, said the long list of charges for the embezzlement case convinced Einspahr to plead guilty.
Weld County District Attorney Michael Rourke said in a news release that Einspahr not only jeopardized her own life by robbing the bank, but also endangered the children in her care. “This kind of behavior is completely unacceptable.”
