Criminal charges in Colorado against a local educator and Edmond resident have been dismissed with prejudice.
On June 18, Archuleta County District Judge Greg Lyman dismissed the case and all charges against both Lisa Crosslin and her current husband Terry Crosslin related to an alleged trespassing on property she owned.
According to Archuleta County (Colo.) Deputy District Attorney Alex Lowe, Crosslin was being charged with burglary and theft of a dwelling in the amount of $1,000 to $20,000.
Crosslin was never arrested but instead was served a felony summons based on the fact that she was living out of state, had obtained an attorney and was working with the D.A.’s office, Lowe said.
“When I received the news the court had dismissed all charges against me, I was overwhelmed,” Crosslin said. “The past three months have been difficult, but they have strengthened my faith and helped me appreciate the love of friends and family, whose prayers and support have been my rock. I am ready to put this behind me, move ahead and see what blessings await me.”
Crosslin recently had been hired as Deer Creek Intermediate School principal and tendered her resignation for the 2012-13 school year. She was leaving Cashion Elementary School where she had served as principal and Special Education director from 2010 to the present. Previously, she was at Pagosa Springs Intermediate School in Colorado.
A National Board Certified Teacher in Early Adolescent English/Language Arts, Crosslin began her education career in 1993 as a middle school English teacher in Okemah Schools.
Crosslin will be working as an educational consultant and coach for the 2012-13 school year.
