Dr. Allison Hargrave, 39, of Lafayette, Louisiana, a former counselor at Ascension Episcopal School in Lafayette, was arraigned in federal court on a charge of attempting to entice a 13-year-old girl to engage in criminal sexual activity.

Hargrave was indicted in July by a federal grand jury and was arrested in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, on June 2, 2010.

If convicted, Hargrave faces a maximum statutory penalty of life in prison and a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years, a $250,000 fine, or both.

During the alleged relationship with the minor, Hargrave was also involved in a sexual relationship with the then-Ascension Episcopal School's headmaster, Pat Dickens and another Ascension teacher. Dickens has since resigned as headmaster.

On August 16, 2010, Hargrave plead not guilty by reason of insanity.
