A Loudoun County high school counselor accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student several years ago is free on bond, authorities said.
Ann Barrett, 42, of Ashburn, was a school counselor at Freedom High School between 2013 and 2015 when the relationship occurred, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.
The victim was a student at the school, authorities said.
Authorities began investigating in May after they learned about the improper relationship.
Barrett was charged with taking indecent liberties with a child by a custodian, authorities said.
The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office says Barrett surrendered to police Thursday afternoon, then was released on $10,000 bond.
Loudoun County Public Schools didn’t immediately reply to a request for comment.
Authorities declined to release any more information about the student to protect their identity.
