Lesbian Teen Back in Jail For Continuing Sexual Relationship With Minor Despite Court Order

Kaitlyn HuntSebastian, Fla. – A Florida teenager is back behind bars after it was discovered that she continued to have contact–including sexual contact–with her now 15-year-old girlfriend.

As previously reported, Kaitlyn Hunt, 19, was arrested on criminal charges in February for having a same-sex physical relationship with a 14-year-old freshman. Hunt was 18 at the time of her arrest. According to reports, both Hunt and the girl play on the school’s basketball team, and both were stated to have been in a consensual relationship.

However, when the coach found out about the two being romantically involved, she contacted the younger teen’s parents, who then called police. The girl’s mother, who also serves as a coach, had Hunt kicked off the team.

Police then set up a sting operation, having the girl call Hunt to discuss details surrounding their relationship. Based on the content of the discussion, since Hunt is considered an adult, they arrested her and charged the teen with two counts of felony child abuse for “lewd and lascivious conduct on a child ages 12-14.”

In the meantime, Hunt has denied the charges, claiming that the sexual relationship began when she was 17, and that she should therefore not be criminalized.

“I’m scared of losing the rest of my life, not being able to go to college and be around kids and my sisters and my family,” she told CBS News. “I’m just scared and hoping for the best…”

Hunts’ parents are supportive, and accuse the younger girl’s family of acting out in opposition merely because their daughter is a lesbian. The ACLU has also characterized the relationship as being harmless and consensual.

In March, Hunt was ordered not to have any contact with the girl, and was recently offered a plea deal over the matter. However, new court documents allege that the teen violated the court order by sneaking a phone to the girl, texting her approximately 20,000 times, and sending her lewd photographs. Reports state that the girl told detectives that she had had sexual relations with Hunt as late as last month. She also told her parents.

“You want me to go in jail,” Hunt texted after finding out that the girl revealed the matter to her family. “You’re such a messed up person…You snitched on me. God only knows what you’ll do when pressed in court. Bye.”

Court documents also allege that Hunt’s mother texted the girl and advised her to delete all of her messages to and from Hunt, so that there would not be a trace of communication between the two.

Hunt was to have been offered community service and curfew time as part of her plea deal, and would have been kept out of prison. She also would not have been required to register as a sex offender. However, the deal is now off the table due to the new allegations.

The company that posted her bail escorted Hunt to the Indian River County Jail on Monday, and she was scheduled to appear in court this week to discover her fate.
