Judge seals evidence in federal sex case

The evidence in a federal sex-crime case involving a former private school counselor has been sealed by a federal magistrate judge.

The judge granted a joint motion filed by the government and defense, sealing a 24-page exhibit containing e-mails allegedly exchanged between Hargrave and a 14-year-old student.

Hargrave, who served as a counselor at Ascension Episcopal School, is accused by federal prosecutors of using e-mail to entice the girl to engage in sexual activity.

Portions of the government's exhibit were read in open court during Hargrave's federal detention hearing earlier this month.

The government and defense filed a motion to seal after The Advocate and The Advertiser attempted to obtain a copy of the transcript.
