The attraction between the man and Husted, whose LinkedIn profile lists her as a clinical psychologist at the U.S. Department of Defense, appears to have been a slow burn. According to the CSPD, the man was assigned to receive counseling related to his combat deployments in the summer of 2010.
The man says his relationship with Husted became considerably more hands-on in August 2011 and continued through October or November of that year.
Husted allegedly warned the man not to tell anyone else that they were, um, dating. When he complained about having to keep this secret, she's said to have told him they could go public in a mere two years -- and when that response didn't satisfy him, she precipitated a break-up.
This decision didn't get Husted off the hook. After a CSPD investigation, Husted was busted on New Year's Eve. The charge against her -- sexual assault on a client by a psychotherapist -- is a class-four felony.
The cops are still collecting information on the case. Anyone with more to share should phone the department at 719-444-7000 or Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers, Inc. at 719-634-STOP (7867). Here's a larger look at Husted's booking photos.
