Last Updated on Jan 25, 2014 at 9:37am | Public Information Office

Garrett County Public Schools reassigned Mr. Richard A. McCrobie to the school system’s central office prior to the start of the 2013-2014 school year upon learning of the allegations against him.  Mr. McCrobie, a teacher and the FFA advisor at Northern High School, was charged on January 24, 2014, with sexual abuse of a minor, possession of child pornography, and displaying obscene material to a minor. 

From the start of the school year until his arrest, Mr. McCrobie was not allowed access to Northern High School or to the other schools in the Garrett County Public School System.  The Garrett County Public School System has cooperated fully with law enforcement and will not be commenting on the situation. This is a personnel matter and according to law enforcement the investigation is on-going.
