ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A therapist is accused of providing money and transportation to help two teenage boys escape from a St. Paul juvenile corrections facility.

The criminal complaint filed Friday alleges that 29-year-old Karen Anne Meyer, who worked as a contract mental health therapist at Boys Totem Town, helped the boys escape Feb. 11. One was arrested shortly afterward but the other remains missing.

The complaint says staff at the facility told police that Meyer had taken a special interest in one of the boys - the same one who got away. She’s accused of seeing the 17-year-old several times a day despite not having time to meet with other clients - and of making out with him.

Meyer remains jailed since her arrest Tuesday. Court records don’t list an attorney for her.
