Florida Teen Re-Arrested, Continues to Face Felony Charges for Relationship with Female Classmate: VIDEO

Hunt

19-year-old Florida teen Kaitlyn Hunt, who last February was arrested and charged with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious behavior on a child because she had a relationship with a 14-year-old female school classmate when she was 18, was arrested again last night, WPTV reports:

As some people in the Sebastian area wish to talk about the case less, Hunt's legal troubles are garnering more attention states away. A Boston-based lawyer recently signed on to consult with Hunt's defense team. Attorney William Korman says that new allegations that Hunt violated judge's orders not to contact the victim should not sway public opinion. "If people were supporting her then, they should still continue to support her," said Korman. "The fact that there's new allegations doesn't change anything."

On Monday, prosecutors withdrew a plea deal that they were offering Hunt. The plea deal - that would have kept her out of jail - was withdrawn. Prosecutors said that Hunt and her mother had been communicating with the victim, telling her to delete the texts so no one would find out.

Hunt was booked into the Indian River County Jail Monday evening, said Sgt.Thomas Raulen, spokesman for Indian River County Sheriff's Office. She continues to face felony charges and may have to register as a sex offender if convicted.

  2. I have no sympathy for Hunt if she broke the law of consent. None at all.

  3. Age of consent is 16, not 14. Guys get prosecuted ALL THE TIME for doing the same thing with girls. What's good for the goose....

  4. She'll have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life. Again, this happens to guys all the time. Guys can get arrested for peeing in public [even if it's up against a wall or tree with no one around, and be charged with indecent exposure and get sex offender status. Happens all the time. Our society has also adopted the habit of going easy on female sex offenders.

  5. Au contraire, Ratbastard. Women do not get off easy as "sex offenders" (which is a ridiculous concept anyway). The problem here is that Hunt had a court order not to communicate with her girlfriend. She did anyway. She screwed herself and she gets no sympathy for being so stupid.

  6. When your freedom and your future are at stake, it is NOT a smart idea to violate a no-contact court order and tell the person you're illicitly contacting to cover it up by destroying the evidence.

  9. A. She's a moron for violating her court order
    B. The consent laws need a redo when a birthday instantly turns you into a sex offender

  10. Sex offenders is not a ridiculous concept,Jamal, although I do think the laws are overly vague and rigid. A guy or woman who is a true pedophile who assaults children, and distributes real pedophile material should have the book thrown at them and then some. I have zero sympathy and absolutely they should be forced to register as a sex offender for the rest of their lives and be forced to deal with the stigma in employment and housing that brings.

    Same with rapist.

  11. @Ratbastard: I don't know where you went to high school, but in mine, every other straight guy had a girlfriend 3 years younger and was sexually active with her. One 15-year-old had the baby of a 19-year-old guy who'd already graduated. And to this day I've never heard of anyone in town even imagining they would be arrested for it. I don't believe such atrests "happen all the time" to guys dating girls; I think it happens one time in thousands.
    In regards to releiving one's bladder on a bush, I don't think I've ever met a man (including a police officer) who has never done that at any point in his life. It effectively makes a potential criminal out of everyone, and to call something a "sex offence" that has no relation to sex whatsoever seems outrageous to me.

  12. Why was this pedophile ever released from prison? It is a quite simple law. No one age 18 or over can have sex with anyone under 18. Anyone who violates that law should receive life in prison or at least a long period of time. Children cannot consent to sex. Adults who claim to have 'had sex' with children are rapists.

  13. @DB: The world is not black and white. People are magically endowed with self-actualization 18 years after birth. Many teens under 18 are able to make "adult" decisions far better than some people in their 20s. Our legal system recognizes this fact on occasion in the form of someone under 18 being tried as an adult.
