Therapist Accused of Romance with Client

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — A Des Moines therapist has been accused of having a romantic relationship with a client.

Forty-five-year-old Darla Krom is charged with sexual exploitation by a therapist.

Police say a 39-year-old woman began seeing Krom as part of couple's therapy and continued as a client when the couple's relationship ended.

Police say Krom and the woman began a physical relationship in April, then ended the therapy and began living together.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/Z4Rv5r) that Iowa law says a therapist must wait at least a year after therapy ends before beginning such a relationship with a former client because the former client is still considered "emotionally dependent" on the therapist.

A phone listed for Krom is no longer in service. Court records don't list the name of her attorney.
