Alabama counselor Virgil A. Freet pleads guilty; caught on video improperly touching teen client
September 29, 2010
A former counselor who had specialized in trauma treatment for sexually abused children in Dale County pleaded guilty on Friday to harassing a 16-year-old client by way of kissing and unwanted touching, according to authorities.
The business' website said Freet's primary concentration was "special interest in" physical and sexual abuse.
The Alabama Board of Examiners in Counseling suspended Freet's license as a result of the charges.
"People that provide services like he did are supposed to be people that can be trusted, but he violated that trust and he's been held accountable for that violation. Everybody's proud of the young lady for standing up tohim, and because of her bravery and with the help of the licensing board, he'll never be able to violate anyone else's trust in a practice," Adams said.
Boyd said the case involves some of the "worst" breach of trust he has seen.
