Mars Area School District Principal Clears Her Name...Sort of...


Heres an update on that bizarre local news story for all you Western PA news junkies. Yeah I know your out there. I posted a couple items following the legal scandal involving the disorderly conduct and obstruction of justice charges on a Mars Area School District principal and her husband. Well, the case was closed yesterday, and all charges against Miss Saker were dropped. Three of the 5 counts were dismissed by a lower court and the remaining 2 counts were Nolle Prossed (dismissed because person pressing charges or the prosecution does not wish to continue usually for lack of evidence or a plea bargain). That means that Miss Saker has not been convicted of any crimes and her name has been cleared. There is a possibility of charges being reinstated if Daniel Tressler wishes because of the Nolle Prossed, but I think that is highly unlikely. I am sure Miss Saker promised free tickets to all the Mars High School football games this fall and gave the cop a gift certificate to Applebees. You know what I'm saying...228 holla!. Anna's bad ass husband Nazir wasn't so lucky and had to plead guilty to all of his charges. I am sure that Miss Saker is glad that this is all over and done with so she doesn't have to hear the Cops theme song playing outside her office, and doesn't have to worry about field trips to the Court house on her trial dates. I guess there is a lesson to be learned by all of this. No one gets in the way of Anna Saker and a blue light special at Big Lots. Hey it could be worse. She could have been the mayor of Detroit who was sentenced to prison today.

Hey I know you're up to date on gossipy news and all but I figure since you are trying to get facts straight that you would consider showing her some respect and calling her Mrs. Saker seeing how she is married and in this country we are innocent until proven guilty.

Thanks for the etiquette lesson, seeing that this is a discussion about a women using her position of power as principal to get out of a speeding ticket, it is completely appropriate. Also in the midwest and south Miss is used irrespective of marital status. Lastly, the post was about the charges being dropped, so not sure what the added law lesson was about. Regardless of the legal outcome of her charges, she will always be remember as the principal that tried to get out of a ticket by using her clout as an "administrator" and I think that is where the humor lies.

I guess you were wrong. She never tried to get out of the charges. The charges were made up. She was falsely accused. Why haven't you written about that? Not only were the charges dropped, Tresslor is no longer working in Mars, She is still working in Mars. She was kind enough to settle with the police for a quarter of a million in Federal Court because her rights were violated and she was falsely accused. Maybe you owe her and your readers an apology for printing inaccurate, and false info. I would say that she cleared her name. And someone should ask questions about how something like this happens in America.
