Counselor Sheila Loven was supposed to help couples handle the difficulties of marriage, but she was accused of breaking state law by using her influence as a counselor to coerce a husband into having sex.
Loven and the man had sex for more than two months in the summer of 2009 before the husband and wife compared notes and realized that Loven had deceived them, according to testimony in the trial.
Consequently, a Tarrant County jury convicted her Tuesday of sexual assault.
Now the trial is in the punishment phase. Loven could get 20 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
