The only thing that I know
about this is that Robin Colls,
who is a teacher at Castle
Park, was very upset with me
because I had not included her
in any meetings. And I wouldn’
t have included her in any
meetings because I didn’t
know she had any
involvement. I had no idea
what this was about.
And she said to me that there
was some involvement on a
personal level that one of her
relatives, you know.
Did Robin Colls relate to you
that her brother or some other
family member had some
relationship with law
She did share that with me.
Was it her brother who—

no, it had nothing to do with
what we were trying to
accomplish for Maura.

Q. Did Robin Colls [AKA Robin Donlan]
ever share with you any kind of
information concerning a police report
allegedly, somehow, involving Maura
A. Actually, that did come up at some
point when she [Robin Colls/Donlan]was
talking, but she, herself, said, you know,
you don’t want to hear anything about
that. And I’m not going to tell you. I know
that there is something, but I have no clue
what it is. She didn’t want me to know.
[Robin is demonstrating awareness of guilt.]
Q. So she said there’s something in the
A. It was a personal thing.
Q. Involving something that was a non-
school matter but that Robin Colls was
Q. Was that a yes?
A. Yes, I do recall hearing something like
that. I have no details whatsoever.
Q. Was this in a face-to-face conversation
with Robin Colls?
Q. And what year was that?
A. That was the year, I think she told me
about that this year, the year—
A. Two—1999, 2000 school year. It was
the year before.
Q. That this occurred?
A. It occurred in the 1999, 2000 school
Q. But you found out about it in which year.
A. There was an incident that this is
referring to in my belief. They had a
problem with a staff member the year
before and—that’s what I understood this to
Q. Exhibit 19? [Exhibit 19]
Page 82 lines 1-25:
A. Yes. It happened in 1999, September.
[actually, 2000, September]
It was like the first week back from
vacation. That’s when that happened, and,
I believe, that’s when Robin told me
that there was an incident, there was a
personal, a side incident, but she said
you don’t want to know about it [because it
would be a crime to obtain this
information?]. And I said no, it’s personal,
doesn’t have anything to do with
school, I don’t want to know.
Q. And she told you it involved some
sort of police report or law enforcement
A. I think so, yes.
Q. Did you ask her how she knew that?
A. That was it. That’s all she said. She
said I have this thing going on with her on
the side. Outside of school. You don’t want
to know about it.
Q. Was it an indication that she had it
going on, that it was something personal?
A. It was a personal issue outside of
school going on with Maura and her
somehow, and I don’t know if it was her or
her family or—but that was it. That’s all
Q. Did Ms. Colls, rather, leave you with
the impression that it was going
on—that somehow, Ms. Colls was actually
involved in this personal incident?
A. That she or her family, you know,
she knows about it or it was—something
else going on outside of school,
Page 83, lines 1-8:
[A. contd.] Something to do with Robin and
or her family and Maura. I don’t know even
why I remember that. Somehow somebody
told me, and I think it was Robin.
Q. It had something to do with either
Robin or a family member of Robin’s?
A. Yeah. I think if it was actually Robin I
probably would have wanted to
know, just natural curiosity. I don’t think it
was against her. I think it was
a family member.

|Werlin and Bolton share the same kiss-up,
kick-down personalities, and the same
history of fits of anger and abuse of
employees. The last time I saw Mr. Werlin,
he was sporting a mustache identical to Mr.
Bolton's, but he has bright blue contact
lenses instead of glasses.
