It's become a waiting game for Springs counselor Jennifer Bier.
She could be arrested at any time for refusing to hand over counseling records to the Air Force on a Cadet who claims she was sexually assaulted at the Academy.

And there's some speculation over how far this could go.

One local lawyer, who is a former judge advocate with the military, says if Bier is arrested, there's the potential she could sit in jail.

He says under the uniform code of military justice, military court can differ from civilian court.

Bier's attorney Wendy Murphy disagrees, saying it's not anyone's right to look at private records.

The legal council did not file with the Supreme Court because they are waiting to see what happens next.
