New plea deal offered to teen accused of same-sex relationship with 14-year-old


INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. - A new plea is on the table this afternoon for an Indian River County teenager accused of having sex with her underage girlfriend.

Prosecutors offered 19-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt a third plea deal on Tuesday that would have her out of jail by Dec. 20 in exchange for pleaded no contest to charges that include battery and interfering with child custody.

Hunt would then serve three months of probation and two years of community control.

Authorities said Hunt was 18 when she had sex with her then-14-year-old girlfriend. The two met at Sebastian River High School in 2012.

Hunt has argued the sex was consensual, but Florida law considers it a felony offense to have sex with a person under the age of 16.

Hunt's last deal was rescinded after prosecutors said she violated court orders by sending 20,000 text messages to her high school girlfriend, including 25 lewd photos.

In one text to the victim, Hunt wrote, "No matter what if they find out we talked I'm going to jail until trial starts."\

Investigators also said the two girls would meet in person.

In another text, Hunt wrote, "You're want me to go in're such a messed up snitched on me."

There's no word on whether Hunt will accept the plea deal.
