Fla. teen convicted of having sex with underage girlfriend released from jail

Monday, December 23, 2013

VERO BEACH, Fla. — A Florida teen convicted of having sex with her underage girlfriend has been released from jail after completing her sentence.

Kaitlyn Hunt left the Indian River County Jail around 1 a.m. Friday and quickly rode away with her family. As part of a deal with prosecutors, the 19-year-old had pleaded no contest in October to battery, interference with child custody and contributing to the dependency of a child.

Hunt was charged in February with having sex with a 14-year-old female schoolmate when she was 18. A previous plea deal was withdrawn in August following allegations that Hunt exchanged thousands of texts with the girl and sent her nude photos. A judge revoked her bond, sending her to jail, where she remained the past four months.

The case garnered attention as Hunt’s lawyers claimed that authorities wouldn’t have gone after her if the situation had involved a male and a female instead of two teenage girls.

Under the terms of the plea deal, Hunt’s prison term is to be followed by two years of house arrest with electronic monitoring, and nine months of monitored probation after that.

If she has no violations, she will not be a convicted felon under Florida law, and she will have the possibility of sealing her file and having the case expunged after 10 years, according to prosecutor Brian Workman.

Hunt does not have to register as a sex offender.

  10. I think if the two teenagers are in high school, it shouldn't be illegal. 14 year olds should be able to consent. I'm sorry for those who don't agree, but a 14 year old knows the difference between right and wrong.

  15. The only reason she got such a light sentence was because she WAS a girl. Can you honestly sit there with a straight face and tell us, if it was a older male and a younger female (high school or not) he would have got the same "slap on the wrist" punishment? I personally don't give a damn if it was two females or two males or a male and a female that had slept together. BUT I can tell you the courts do. Had a 18 year old male slept with a 14 year old male or a 18 year old male slept with a 14 year old female would you honestly have the same view? Just because they were in high school dose not make it ok.

  20. Krystren I totally agree with you this never should have been in an issue regardless of gender or orientation, however you are flat out wrong saying she only went to jail because of it. Laws like this are used all the time by parents that don't like the boys their girls are dating or got them prege

    Replied on Monday, December 23, 2013 at 9:39pm
  23. Where in the report did it say she was jailed because the girls parents where homophobic and didn't like the fact their daughter was a lesbian? If you point it out then i'll understand and agree it was fucked up..but unless you where there when all this went down, I think maybe the "gay" card is being pulled. Oh I was targeted for this crime cuz I'm gay... no you just happend to break the law and get caught, had it been two males or a male and a female I would still sing the same tune.

  34. These were high school girls competeing on the same team attending the same classes. They were 17 band 14 when they fell in love. The parents nailed her when she turned 18. This has no business in the courts. The parents were just upset that their daughter was seeing a girl. Never would have happened if she were seeing a boy

If they were a heterosexual couple, they would have been protected under the Romeo and Juliet clause. These folks have been together a while through high school and the mother decided to be a homophobe and cause drama right after the older girl turned 18. Seriously, there's your facts.

  56. So, if it had been an 18 year old boy and 14 year old girl having a relationship, and they were both minors before having the relationship, and the parents went after him when he turned 18 because they weren't okay with their 14 year old daughter, who was younger at times in the relationship, having sexual relations with an older individual, you are saying this wouldn't be an issue? That stuff happens all the time. It's not okay, regardless of gender or previous relationship. Why are 14 year old girls having sex?

    Replied on Monday, December 23, 2013 at 10:47pm
  57. The thing is I don't think they would've been concerned about it if it'd been a boy. I know a lot of parents of younger females who allow their daughters to date older. I'm not saying I agree with that, but its pretty common.

  65. Did anyone bother to think what jailing this girl might do to the spirit of the person they were with? Her girlfriend has to deal with the guilt that goes along with knowing that this girl went to jail just because she loved her. That's the real tragedy here nobody seems to really give a fuck about her, they're just thinking of their own offended sensibilities.

  66. For those with ZERO reading comprehension skills, my POINT was that it seems really backward to jail a woman (who really isn't that old) for dating a girl (who is ALSO a teen) when the same happens constantly in the south between hetero couples, with much wider age gaps. Seems to me it's more about hating on their orientation. But, hey, yes it does offend me when anyone dates a minor. But I really don't think that's why she went to jail. So, HATE ME ALL YOU WANT FOR MY OPINION, I JUST WISH SOME PEOPLE WOULD ACTUALLY READ THE FUCKING THING SOMETIMES BEFORE SCREAMING SHAME AT ME. THank you. I don't mean to sound as if I was defending pedophilia. I DON'T. I just think it's a double standard, and I feel that way because I LIVED in Florida too long, and I know how the place is. I have a funny feeling the judge is probably fucking minors too.

  112. Those that say she shouldnt have been arrested, need to look at their teenager and ask themself, “would I allow a much older person to date my child? Sleep with myly child at that?” I see a fair game here. U do a crime. U pay the time. If a dude did this he’d be locked up forever.

  115. I had a crush on an older boy when I was in school. I was in middle school (13), he was in high school (16). So, because I was TOTALLY into what we were doing, and he was in NO way forcing me to do anything I wasn't wanting to do, he should have gone to prison when he turned 18, just because I was 15? He deserved to be labeled an offended, even though the person who initiated things most the time was me?

  125. I am quite comfortable with myself. I've studied human sexuality and I know quite a bit about this particular case. Both girls were sexting each other, both girls wanted to date each other. No force or coercion was involved. The parents would have been more intelligent to have allowed the girls to hang out at their house with parents present, to have taken away their daughter's cell phone if she didn't stop sexting, and to supervise their daughter more closely. They should have told her they expected her to wait until 17 to have sex and ensured her compliance. That is what I would have done without expressing dislike of the girl she wanted to date or of their daughter having bisexual or homosexual interests. There isn't anything wrong with parents letting their kids know they believe them too young to have sex. Protecting children this way makes more sense than trying to prohibit your child from seeing someone they like. When a parent does that the child almost always rebels and sneaks around. Have a nice day.

  137. It doesn't matter that they are both technically teenagers. Florida LAW says you can't consent to sex until you're 16. If she really wanted to be with her girlfriend then she could have waited the two years until it was legal for her to have sex. This isn't a case of homosexual oppression, it's a case of a young girl making poor decisions and thinking she can get away with it by using her unconventional preference as an excuse to break the law.

  147. Guys everyone in the LGBT community craves to be treated equally but when someone from the LGBT community breaks the law and gets punished it’s “cause they’re LGBT”. How about we stop trying to play the gay card and accept that what she did was ILLEGAL. she was an adult and the other girl was a minor. She’s lucky they didn’t make her register as a sex offender. Frankly I think she should be registered. If it was a straight make that did this he’d be registered so I think it’s only fair in the light if EQUALITY that she receive the same kind of punishment. We can’t sit here and claim we want equal rights, and then throw a temper tantrum when we realize that equal rights means more than just marriage. It means our punishments are equal as well.

  169. Actually, you are incorrect in your assumptions. First off, more and more individuals are waiting until later in life to have sex. Statistics show a decrease in the number of teens losing their virginity until later ages. Second, her parents may have been taking steps to stop her from seeing the older individual, and perhaps she disobeyed them or found ways to circumvent them through, I don't know, lying maybe? And do you know for certain that they did not ask the older girl to stop seeing their daughter because it made them feel uncomfortable? It doesn't matter why, but if she did not respect that, when she turned 18 the parents found a way to enforce it. I think that you are placing far too much hate into this situation. It happens to men dating younger girls all the time. Meet in High School, parents don't like him but he finds a way to see and bang their daughter anyhow. When he turns 18 and still does it, they press charges. It has NOTHING to do with homosexuality, it's the LAW!

The sexual incidents happened in Dec 2012 and Jan 2013, and that's when the younger girl's parents filed the complaint. As much as your scenario makes it sounds as if the parents did something sinister, the law doesn't work that way. The prosecutor cannot wait until she turns 18 to file charges on something she did when she was a minor. No matter what anyone's opinion are of the motive for the charges (anti-gay?), the fact is the "crimes" she was convicted of occurred when she was 18 and the girlfriend was 14.

If this was an adult male having sex with a female minor everyone would be saying how terrible the guy was but because it’s an LGBT girl she should get off with no punishment. So much for us being equal to straight people right?

  195. She’s damn lucky to not have to register! She was an adult at the time of her conviction, ie: a sex offender. That’s bullshit! She shouldnt get a pass just cuz she’s female. If the parents of the younger child want to pursue it, the can, regardless of the sex of either. I KNOW this from my first boyfriend. His dad called the cops and tried to prosecute HIM, but my parents refused. Boys DO get convicted, they DO get charged IF the parent of the younger child wants it. She was not targetted.

  217. They were both in the same high school as a freshman back in 2007 I dated seniors. If the younger girl would have been dating the senior varsity football caption the parents wouldn’t have said or did anything. If you do not want 14/15 year olds with 17/18 year old then maybe we shouldn’t allow them to go to the same school, have classes together, or be on the same teams (not going to happen right?)? This whole situation is completely messed up. To be sent to jail for something thousands of other highschoolers are doing and are involved in? How many years apart are you and your significant other? My husband and I are 3 years apart and these two girls were only 3 and 5 months apart. The age gap is nothing compared to even most married couples.

  228. The age difference was an excuse the parents made to separate them when really their issue was their sexuality. I remember this story. Poor girls.

    Posted on Monday, December 23, 2013 at 10:25pm
  229. My problem with this case is that the ages of the girls were 17 and 14. So they are both under age. If one was an adult then that’s different. My second problem this relationship was on going the mother and father must have known. The only reason the mom and dad of the 14 year old pressed charges is because they didn’t like that it was a girl she was having sex with. People need to wake up 47% oh high school kids are having sex. It happens maybe instead of trying to jam up the court system us ring tax payer money moms and dads should get more involved in there teens life and teach them safe sex. The good thing is that they charged the 17 year old with some bullshit charges because they knew they wouldn’t get any thing else to stick and because of that she does not have to register as a sex offender.

    Posted on Monday, December 23, 2013 at 10:25pm

Gay or straight it does not matter. Please don’t take this as I’m anti gay cuz I’m not I just feel if u want equal rights don’t bitch when it happens.

  246. I’m sorrt but those in support of this disgust me. Just bc its two girls doesn’t make this any less wrong. At the agw of 14 you biologically amd scientifically do not have the knowledge decision making skills or true assessment of future repercussions to make the decision to have sex. This was wrong amd the girl should have been charged. That was an adult on a child, point blank. Disgusting.

    Posted on Monday, December 23, 2013 at 10:52pm
  247. Show me your scientific proof that they don't have "knowledge decision making skills or true assessment of future reprecussions" because I'm wasn't aware that teens don't possess that... and I'm a teen at that. And also, some adults don't seem to possess those traits and there are some very mature teens to add. So just because someone is at a certain age doesn't mean that EVERYBODY is going to develop the same way.

  261. I’m a gay man. I believe 14 is way too young to be dealing with a sexual relationship. Even if they were truly in love, the older one needed to exercise self-control and wait until the younger was of legal age. It’s asked of hetero relationships and we (in LGBT community) should not be treated any differently. Childhood and adolescence is a precious time and needs to be protected.

But I wonder how many people actually know their law… As parents do we really sit down n teach our children every single law….??? Raise ur hands who all do. Prolly no-one because no-one can honestly say they know every law out there.. n that’s the part that makes this case said.. their really 3yrs n some change apart n age. N true love I feel would have considered well we are a good bit of urs apart n age we need to sit down with our parents n talk on how were feeling. N I think this may have went a lot diff. Because as parents they would have said just wait a few yrs for one another. Anyone could turn Yall in. N still it be on the news. Not the underage parents feeling it was their only choice becaue it wasn’t. They never heard one word their daughter Said.. n poor underage girl. They showing her she has no voice. This 14 has a long life of loneliness ahead if she never has parents who care to listen.

    news to the parents: get a life and let your daughters and sons live their life and love who they want. love isnt about the color of our skin or the sexuality within, its about true happiness. thats something that some of you people dont understand nor will you ever until the day your daughter or son take their own life because of your judgmental, cruel, and hatred ways of not accepting your child for who they are but what you want them to be. and as for god, my religion is agnostic but i do know this, we are all gods children and he gave us life and acceptance for who we are and loves us unconditionally no matter whom we want to share our life with. so for all you homophobic assholes out there, do yourself and your children a favor by watching Prayers for Bobby. it is based on a true story, maybe that will change your mind!!!!!

  273. I think everything is situational and the bottom line for a situation is anyone at all should at least be 16 for sexual relations with others and the length of the relationship status of the couple should be looked at as well as the age difference. I could understand a 4 year difference if they were both older but 14 and 18 is a huge jump, especially for a sexual relationship. 20 and 24 sounds a lot better, but 14? Even 16 and 20 sounds sketchy. I know theres a huge gap in between my boyfriend and i but im also almost 20 and ive never once had sex with someone before the age of 18 either, people that young dont know restraint or consequences for there actions and shouldnt engage in concepts they dont truly understand the severity or maturity of.

  280. 14 is just too young & an 18yr old should have known better… i dont care if is male/female, female/female, male/male. the parents of a hetero/homo sexual child have an obligation to protect their child… both of those girls probably would or may desire to have children one day, i would hope regardless of that childs sexual orientation, at 14… they would do what is necessary to preserve & protect them from adult situations until they are adults.

  287. I’m curious to know how many of you screaming “homophobia” are parents of young girls..this case had everything to do with the law and the fact that the 14 yo’s parents told the 18 yo to stay away. If there was an 18 year old, legal adult, male or female sending my daughter nude photos, you better believe I’m gonna have something to say about it. I would do anything necessary to protect my child because at that age, she is still a CHILD. As far as I can see, this young lady got off easy. I have seen plenty of stories involving young men who are now required to register as sex offenders for the same violations. This girl thankfully does not.

While I dont like teens having sex regardless of gender or sexuality, for the simple fact of maturity issues. at the end of the day, this particular situation was because they were gay. The parents did not try to stop it, when the older one was 17 or younger. they waited until she turned 18 to say its a problem.

  324. The ironic thing is, if this woman were instead a straight white male, I bet there wouldn’t be nearly the same level of outrage at the convict being jailed.
    The parents wouldn’t have been bigoted towards a straight relationship though, so it’s less likely that there would be any jailing in that case anyways. Still.

  329. Statutory rape is statutory rape. It doesn’t matter whether it’s two females, two males or male and female. If this was a 18 year old guy doing it with a 13/14 year old boy, we wouldn’t be having this debate…the older boy would be read the riot act. if this were an 18 year old boy sleeping with a 13/14 year old girl, this wouldn’t be a debate, everyone would want the boy nailed to a wall.

    Why is it that because it’s two girls, suddenly….it’s….okay….?

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:37am
  330. This is ridiculous!!! And not just because I am gay — because i would think the same thing if it were a boy and girl! The US — and Florida in general — have become “obsessed”. I’d like EVERY ONE of the lawmakers, politicians, and parents, to look back on their own childhood/teenage years, and realize that at SOME point, they too — most likely — engaged in “underage sexual experimentation”. The fact that these 2 girls had an on going relationship PRIOR to Kaitlyn turning 18 SHOULD BE the legal “burden of proof”. Additionally, the fact that the other teen was NOT coerced in ANY way, and was a willing participant in the relationship — this should NEVER have gone to court!!! What a waste of taxpayers time and money!!! NO parent should have the “right” to abuse their children the way the younger teen’s parents have done to her!! And make no mistake — the parents were the ones “abusing” their daughter — not Kaitlyn!!!

  331. Released from jail after completing her sentence? Wow, how shocking.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 2:55am
  332. Age of consent in Florida is eighteen, and if someone eighteen or older has sex with someone under the age of sixteen, then it’s a crime. For people saying she was seventeen when it happened, it doesn’t really matter. Close-in-age exemptions exist in Floridian law.

    Not a matter of homophobia (at least not from a legal perspective; the parents may have been homophobic), not a matter of right and wrong. It’s a matter of law.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:02am
  333. Why is it in the adult word, it is not a big deal to have age gaps like 20 and 55?
    But any younger and its a huge crime?

    There is a 4 year difference between the two, and from what it seems it had been going on long before. the parents were just mad about it.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:18am
  334. I lost my virginity at 18 to a 16 year old boy even though the age of consent is 18 in my state. I mean really, who gives a shit?

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 3:24am
  335. Everyone, get your facts straight. Ms. Hunt turned 18 before the school year started in August. The first sexual incident happened in November, according to both Ms. Hunt and her younger girlfriend. Charges were not brought until February, AFTER Ms. Hunt had gotten warnings from at least the other adults in her life (her parents not included). This was also weeks AFTER she picked her girlfriend up and took her back to Ms Hunt’s home to engage in more sex acts after the younger girl had run away from home. How could the parents “wait until she was 18,” when she was almost 19? Ms. Hunt was given plenty of warning, if not from them, then from other people (hello, she was kicked off the basketball team for this relationship), before the parents took action. Then, on top of this, the judge issued a no contact between Ms. Hunt and the younger girl, and Ms. Hunt disobeyed THAT (giving her an ipod with text capabilities). Ms. Hunt’s mom even threatened the younger girl if she told anyone about it. Look up the court information. It’s public information. Now stop being manipulated and learn to think for yourselves…

  338. Disgusting. no one should be having sex with a 14 year old.
    and to all you saying “oh hurr they were dating long before” Doesn’t make it any less disgusting. just makes her even younger.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 4:15am
  339. This was in the news months ago, and in the original article the parents stated that it had nothing to do with her being gay. They had asked her several times to stay away from their daughter because they felt she was too old, but she didn’t respect their wishes, and in fact, helped the girl run away instead. She deserves the punishment she got- not because she’s gay, but because she broke the law. She was also offered a plea deal that included NO jail time when she was first arrested, but declined to take it and opt for the “I’m gay” defence, and subsequently cried to the media when that didn’t work. However, her argument that it wouldn’t have gotten this far if she had been a male is completely correct- 18 year old males that have sex with underage girls don’t get media coverage, they go straight to prison and get labelled a sex offender for the rest of their lives. I don’t have any sympathy for her. She’s not entitled to special treatment just because she’s gay.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 4:31am
  340. so glad this girl got released there was absolutely NO reason this girl should have been put in jail! They were very close to the same age and was dating long before the girl turned 18.

Glad she’s out, but this was a miscarriage of justice. There should be some kind of age span that is allowable as long as it is consensual. Of course, we know why this happened. Karma is a b tho. parents gonna reap what they sew

  366. You know, I am curious if her and the younger girl are even still together to this day. Probably not, and if they are they must be on a severe DL type situation. Honestly, IF and I am not saying I knew what happened, I am just basing this off of what I had read. If they were dating prior to this woman turning 18, and there was sex happening before as well, then there shouldn’t be anything wrong. It seems like more of a hate crime on the parents end, kinda a shame when you think about it. That could have been true love regardless of age, and it potentially is dead and gone.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 9:43am
  367. your right about that, but if this story is true i love gay ppl im bi my self but shes 18 she should know better if she dont go to jail thats swending the wrong message to other ppl who have done it. why should she get any special reprive thats like giveing a slap on the wrist to a sex offender doing the same shit.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 10:36am
  369. I’m a bit confused by the article. Were they about the same age when the younger girl was about 14, or was the older girl 18 and the younger girl was 14. At that age, there is a lot of experimenting and curiosity going on, but older teens are generally wary of younger kids – partly because younger children have a harder time coping with break-ups and such. I remember when my daughter was 13 and had a crush on a basketball player. She was manager of the team, but when she wouldn’t kiss him and engage in PDAs, he started dating her best friend. The lesson for my daughter was that she was less trusting of older boys and maintained control. Still, if it had been a 18 year old boy and a 14 year old girl, it probably wouldn’t have gone well for the boy.

    I do remember when I was 16 and was dating a girl who was 18. I threatened to take off my shoes which would have been grounds for statutory rape if it had been a 18 year old boy with a 16 year old girl. In this case, the case seems to involve more than just “statutory rape technicalities” and may have included some threats.

    On the other hand, the fact that a 14 year old girl was seeking out the 18 year old girl could have been an attempt to get help. Often, 14 year old girls have a number of struggles going on. I had several 14 year old girl friends (not dating) who were being molested by their step-fathers or other adult authority figures. When they tried to discuss it with their mothers they were accused of making it up and punished for lying. These girls were lucky to find me because my parents were very good at working with children and their parents to get such issues resolved and helped not only my friends, but friends of my brothers and my sisters.

    It’s pretty easy to see that the parents were homophobic, that their daughter had tried to share her nature as a lesbian with them and had been persecuted for her honesty. Too often, parental abuse in the name of religious zeal is excused – even when the same activities without the religion, especially by minority parents, would have resulted in the child being taken out of the home.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 10:43am
  370. I am gay and although I think jail is extreme. I do not believe 18 yo people gay or straight should be dating and or having sex with 14 yo it is a violation of boundaries. It has a very different impact on a 14 yo than a young adult at 18. I also do not have a problem with age differences as my partner is much older than me .

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 12:06pm
  375. It really doesn’t matter if it’s because she is gay. She broke the law. I know for a fact that I was not capable of making appropriate decisions about sex when I was 14. Plenty of men go to jail for having exactly this kid of relationship with a child. That girl is a minor in her parents home and subject to their rules. She should count herself lucky, in some states they go after the minor as well. That girl knew she want supposed to be taking advantage of a 14 year old child.

    Here is a little way of telling if your date is to young. If on date night she isn’t old enough to pick you up in a car, but you are, you possibly shouldn’t be touching her genitals.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 12:48pm
  376. This case is bullshit you don’t see them locking up the straight kids having sex. She should have waited but damn this only went to court because it was a lesbian relationship.

    Posted on Tuesday, December 24, 2013 at 1:17pm
  377. This bull shit about how it’s only because she’s gay is ridiculous. I like how the celebrities/experts in the case day they have NEVER heard of this happening with a boy and a girl. Really? I find that odd, since one of my friends was arrested and served his time when he was 19 and sleeping with his 15 year old girlfriend. He was on probation for 3 years after that too. That didn’t get news coverage, because it was just a boy and a girl. This whole story is only in the news because she is gay, no other reason, and I think that’s what is truly hypocritical and ridiculous. The fact is that parents of minors reserve the right to press charges, even if it’s just a typical high school relationship to most people. Happens all the time across America, whether the experts want to acknowledge it or not.

Not to mention having sex at school in the bathroom. Hell no. That girl should have respected the 14year olds parents wishes and stayed away. And don’t call it love. Love doesn’t date a 27 year old at the same time as a 14 year old.
