Fighting back tears in Loudoun Circuit Court on Thursday, ex-Freedom High School guidance counselor Ann Marie Barrett apologized for having sex with an underage student.

“My intentions were never to hurt anyone and I feel horrible for what I did,” Barrett told Judge James P. Fisher. “I will forever feel guilty for the pain I caused the victim and his family.”
