Investigators have arrested a Colorado Springs psychologist on suspicion of sexually assaulting a client.
Dr. Janice Husted was arrested Dec. 31 and faces a charge of sexual assault on a client by a psychotherapist, a Class 4 felony.
According to the victim, a young man who was assigned to receive counseling related to his combat deployments, the sexual relationship began in August 2011. It continued until October or November 2011, he told investigators.
