Prosecutors pull plea deal for teenage lesbian accused of having sex with underage classmate

ASSOCIATED PRESS

VERO BEACH, Fla. -- Prosecutors have withdrawn a plea deal to a Florida teen accused of having sex with her underage girlfriend.

The state attorney's office reports that it pulled 19-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt's deal Monday, following allegations last week that she violated her pretrial conditions and contacted the girl identified as the victim. The deal would have spared Hunt jail time and sex-offender registration but added a felony count to her charges.

Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers reports that Hunt was charged in February with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery and released on $5,000 bail.

Authorities say Hunt was 18 when she had sex with her then-14-year-old girlfriend. They met at high school in 2012.

Hunt has argued the sex was consensual, but Florida law considers sex with a person under 16 a felony.

Good, I am not in favor of plea bargains because they do not teach a proper lesson. If the alleged lesbian is found guilty and proved to have taken part in the lesbian activities she should serve the time to learn a lesson, especially at such a young age where she can still straighten out her life. What a horrible thing to do trying to drag a minor into such a destructive lifestyle.

Ed....you are a bigot.

Ed. Go shoot yourself in the face. Do us all a favor

what they said, ed...

Gay or straight she shouldn't have have have had sex with a minor and then try to tamper with the witness. This has happened to plenty of young straight men and the rules should apply to this young lady as well

In Florida it is not against the law for a 23 year old to have sex with a 16 year old. Which relationship has the greater potential for abuse.
