JOHNSTOWN - A sex offender from Johnstown who was charged with two sex-related crimes after a traffic stop in December pleaded guilty Friday in Fulton County Court to one felony count of second-degree rape.

Randy L. Robar, 39, of South Melcher Street pleaded guilty before Judge Richard C. Giardino. Sentencing was adjourned until a later date, but he is expected to receive four years in state prison.

Fulton County sheriff's deputies charged Robar in December in Mayfield with two sex-related crimes after a traffic stop because he was not wearing a seat belt. A 14-year-old girl was a passenger in his car, authorities said.

After an investigation, Robar was charged with second-degree rape for allegedly committing a sex act with someone younger than 15 years old.

He also was charged with driving without wearing a seat belt and driving in violation of restrictions.

In other cases Friday before Giardino:

Christopher J. Jordan, 34, of West Fulton Street, Johnstown, was sentenced to 1 1/2 to three years in state prison. Sentencing was based on his Jan. 13 guilty plea to one count of fourth-degree grand larceny.

Police said Jordan, who was arrested Sept. 8, committed fraud involving state unemployment benefits.

Eric Sleezer, 30, of Montgomery Street, Gloversville, pleaded guilty to one count of fourth-degree grand larceny. He was immediately sentenced to six months in the county jail.

He was arrested Sept. 8 for stealing a purse from a woman outside Estee Commons in Gloversville.
