Lesbian Teen Pleads Guilty to Having Sexual Relations With 14-Year-Old in Plea Deal

Kaitlyn HuntVERO BEACH, Fl. — A lesbian teenager has plead guilty to five criminal counts pertaining to sexual relations with a minor and will spend the next four months behind bars as part of a plea deal between her attorney and prosecutors, reports state.

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 later offered a plea deal over the matter. However, in August of this year, she was put back behind bars after it was alleged that she had violated the order. Police documents accuse Hunt of texting the teen approximately 20,000 times and sending her lewd photographs over the six month period. Reports state that the girl told detectives that she had sexual relations with Hunt as well.

“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.”

However, prosecutors recently agreed to allow Hunt to plead guilty to avoid being listed as a sex offender and having the matter on her permanent record. On Thursday, the 19-year-old plead no contest to two counts of misdeameanor battery, one count of contributing to the dependency of a child and two counts of felony interference with child custody.

In turn, Hunt will spend four months in jail, followed by two months of monitored house arrest and nine months of monitored probation. If she does not violate the terms, she will not be considered a felon and may have her case expunged in ten years.

“I love my daughter and I am willing to do whatever to protect her,” the girl’s parents told reporters.
