Psychotherapist accused of manipulating patient for sex 

A San Francisco-based psychotherapist who allegedly used mind tricks to get a patient to sleep with him during therapy sessions was headed to court Thursday, prosecutors said.

In 2008, Steven Allan Korn, then 61, was accused of having sex with a patient in her 20s during two separate therapy sessions, authorities said. He was arrested July 21 and charged with two misdemeanor counts of sexual exploitation by a psychotherapist. Each count carries a maximum sentence of six months in county jail, prosecutors said.

“Based upon the allegations, the defendant betrayed a vulnerable patient who trusted him,” District Attorney Kamala Harris said in a statement.

Korn was scheduled to enter a plea Thursday morning, prosecutors said.
