Gay Fla. teen back in jail after plea deal pulled

By Associated Press

POSTED:



VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida teen accused of having sex with her underage girlfriend is back in jail after prosecutors withdrew a plea deal.

Authorities say 19-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt was booked into the Indian River County Jail on Monday night. She remained in jail Tuesday morning, charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child.

The state attorney's office pulled its plea offer Monday following allegations Hunt violated her pretrial conditions and contacted the girl. She's scheduled for a hearing Tuesday afternoon.

Indian River County Sheriff's Sgt. Thomas Raulen told Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers the bond company that posted Hunt's bail brought her to jail.

Authorities say Hunt had sex with her then-14-year-old girlfriend last year. Hunt argues the sex was consensual, but Florida law considers sex with a person under 16 a felony.

Wrong. Regardless of what gender Hunt is, what Hunt did is illegal - sex with a minor below the age of consent.
