Citing court documents, The Advocate reported Monday that Ascension Episcopal School’s insurance company will pay a former student who was sexually abused by her then-school counselor at least $2 million in structured settlement payments.

The ex-counselor, Allison Hargrave, who resigned from AES in March 2010, was sentenced in federal court to 30 years in prison after admitting to having sex with the 14-year-old female student who sought her counsel.

According to The Advocate story:

The girl’s parents sued the private school in March 2010, alleging Allison Hargrave, a counselor, yoga instructor and chapel coordinator at the school, had sexual relations with the 14-year-old girl at school during school hours and at Hargrave’s home.

The relationship occurred at some point during the 2009-10 school year and did not end until the parents discovered emails between their daughter and Hargrave on Feb. 16, 2010.
