KUSA - A 39-year-old woman who pleaded guilty to one count of attempted sexual assault and sentenced Thursday.

Lynne Collette Freeman was sentenced to one year in jail through a work-release program, along with six years of probation for sex offenders. She will also have to register as a sex offender.

Freeman was a volunteer at a Greeley charter school. She was originally arrested for allegedly performing a sex act on a 14-year-old boy back in April 2012. The incident was not reported until June 10, 2012. Freeman was re-arrested on sexual assault charges a short time later.

According to the arrest affidavit, the first victim says he was visiting Freeman at home when the assault happened.

He claims he was over at Freeman's home with a friend watching a movie when Freeman allegedly told that friend to take the dog outside.

When the friend took the dog outside, Freeman allegedly grabbed the victim and told him "come with me," the arrest affidavit says.

The victim says Freeman took him upstairs, went into a closet, locked the door, kissed him, removed his pants and then performed oral sex on him.

After the encounter, he says Freeman warned him to not tell anyone. The affidavit says she allegedly told him that telling people would "mess up" his baseball career and would lead to Freeman losing her children to Social Services. The victim claimed Freeman told him that "if he had any thoughts about what just happened, or anything about the incident began to bother him, he should call her and she would talk him through it."

According to the arrest affidavit, Freeman repeatedly asked the victim to keep quiet.
The arrest affidavit says police met with the victim and had the victim call Freeman.

According to the document, during that recorded conversation, the victim told Freeman he did not think what they previously did together was "the right thing." She agreed, according to police, but kept asking the victim if he had told anyone.

"Because, you know, I 100 percent trusted you, and if you ever ... I mean ... I just felt like you understood what would happen, and the trust that we apparently had in each other."

The victim then assured Freeman that he had not told anyone. At that point, Freeman allegedly said "I don't know why at the time I truly with 100 percent of my heart, truly, trusted that you wouldn't. I hope that's true."
