WB Counselor Charged with Sexual Exploitation

A state license has been suspended for a marital and family counselor in West Burlington, who’s been charged with sexual exploitation.

The Des Moines Register says documents released by the Iowa Board of Behavioral Science say Scott Bair told a client that her therapy included hugs and kisses from him.

The board says Bair and the woman had sexual contact several times last August and September. A friend of the woman grew suspicious and shared his concerns with the counseling center Bair worked for.

Bair was arrested December 27th and has since posted bond. His arraignment on the felony charge is scheduled for February 24th.
