A former Lake Charles counselor and therapist turned himself in Friday, one day after being indicted on a charge of sexual battery.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office spokesman James McGee said Christopher Kyle Hay was booked Friday and released after posting a $20,000 bond.

McGee said Hay was also ordered to stay away from the victim, a former patient.

"In August 2013, detectives received a complaint from a woman advising that Hay, her mental health therapist, sexually assaulted her during a counseling session at his office," McGee said.

The Louisiana Licensed Professional Counselors Board of Examiners revoked Hay's licenses in September, after he admitted to improper sexual contact with the victim. Hay also admitted he made sexual comments to the victim.

Hay was indicted Thursday by a Calcasieu Parish Grand Jury. According to the indictment, the alleged incidents happened between June 15 and July 19, 2013.

Hay was practicing in Lake Charles as a marriage and family therapist and counselor.
