WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - A former counselor at a suburban Philadelphia prep school has been charged with pursuing a 16-year-old youth and trying to initiate a physical relationship with him.

Forty-year-old Emily Feeney of Wayne, former director of college counseling at Malvern Prep and also a swim coach, faces charges in Chester County including unlawful contact with a minor, indecent assault and corruption of minors.

District Attorney Tom Hogan alleges that Feeney kissed the youth, sent him inappropriate emails and photos and promised him admission to an elite college

He said after authorities were tipped off in May, the private all-boys school fired Feeney and is cooperating with law enforcement.

Feeney’s attorney said his client is presumed innocent under the law but declined further comment pending a review of the case.
