McTeer said the man left her in front of a Love's truck stop in Guthrie, despite a security video showing the couple “hugging and kissing,” police reported.

She told the judge Tuesday that she became uncomfortable with the man and didn't want to go further with him. She also admitted having several drug relapses.

Last month, McTeer was charged in Oklahoma County with child endangerment, after telling police she was under the influence of methamphetamine while caring for four children — two belonging to her. The children were placed in state custody.

McTeer also is charged with two felonies — harboring a fugitive in Oklahoma County and assisting a prisoner escape in Canadian County. The fugitive was McTeer's boyfriend. She represented him in 2008 after he was caught with methamphetamine while on probation.

She also is facing suspension by the Oklahoma Bar Association.

McTeer remained in the Guthrie city jail Tuesday.
