The criminal complaint alleged that between April 21 and Sept. 30, Lopez had intercourse with a 56-year-old male patient at Heartview Inc. in the town of Hudson on numerous occasions.

Lopez, who is owner and director of the facility, told investigators she had kissed the patient twice but had not had sexual intercourse with him.

Court records said the patient was diagnosed with mental illness and chemical dependency problems.

A preliminary hearing was set for Dec. 12.
