Officer accused of sexual relations with a parolee

Jan 17, 2012

Court papers show Teresa Freeman was charged with one count of custodial sexual relations for having sexual relations  with a parolee she supervised at a Salt Lake City halfway house. The 37-year-old faces a prison term of up to five years if convicted. 

Prosecutors say Freeman engaged in a sexual encounter with a female parolee at a Salt Lake City motel on Sept. 27, 2010. Jail records show Freeman was booked into jail on Friday, but has posted $5,000 bail and was released. It was not immediately clear whether Freeman has an attorney. The initial court appearance is set for January 31. A message left for a department of corrections spokesman was not immediately returned.
