4 Year Old Missing Haylee Donathan Found Safe … Sex Offender Robbie Robbi” Potter and Girlfriend Candace Watson (Haylee Mom) Arrested
Thankfully, missing Haylee Donathan found safe!!!
Haylee Donathan, 4, was found safe at a communal farm in rural San Diego, CA called the Morning Star Ranch. Also found at this location was 27 year old convicted sex offender Robbi Potter and Haylee’s 24 year old mother, Candace Watson. Both have been taken into custody and arrested.
Why are we witnessing recently mothers with young children associating with known convicted sex offenders and playing a deadly game of chicken with their children’s lives?
Missing Haylee Donathan found safe
4 year old Haylee Donathan had been missing since May 31, 2009 when she was picked up by her mother, Candace Watson, and the mother’s boyfriend, Robbie Potter. Both are were wanted by police as days before Haylee Donathan went missing, her mother helped Robbi Potter, a convicted sex offender escape from a half way house in Mansfield, Ohio. Robbi Potter is a Tier III sex offender, the most serious classification.

Robbi Potter, convicted sex offender arrested
Robbi Potter was arraigned Wednesday afternoon in federal court in San Diego, CA for allegedly violating terms of his supervised release in northern Ohio. Candace Watson is due in court tomorrow.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Ruben Brooks told Potter he was accused of violating probation for allegedly absconding from a Volunteers of America halfway house on May 28 without notifying his probation officer of his new address.
Potter also allegedly tested positive for marijuana at the halfway house on May 25, the judge said.
Candace Watson, mother of Haylee arrested … no chance of this woman ever being nominated as mother of the year after exposing her child to a tier 3 sex offender.
Once again we are presented with a case where a mother has little regard for their daughter as they associate with a convicted sex offender while the safety of their child be damned. A similar situation to missing and later deceased 5 year old Nevaeh Buchanan whose mother Jennifer Buchanan seemed to have no issue to knowingly exposing her child to convicted sex offender like like George Kenney and Roy Smith. In this case, Nevaeh Buchanan was not so lucky to have been found alive.
By all accounts Candace Watson helped Potter, a convicted sex offender escape, a half-way house. Thus, she aided and abetted a known criminal and exposed her 4 year old child to a sex offender. When found by police, Candace Watson’s hair was a bit darker and Robbi Potter also changed his appearance. It will be all but impossible for the mother to say that she was not complicit in any crime involving Potter’s escape.
What possesses a woman to expose their child to a sex offender? Who plays Russian roulette with their child’s safety like this? A a convicted tier three sex offender to boot. It is one thing to be stupid enough to put one’s self at risk with a convicted sex offender, but one’s child as well! Candace Watson needs to be sent away for a long time and never be able to gain custody of her child ever again.
