INDIAN RIVER COUNTY, Fla. - A Florida teenager accused of having sex with an underage classmate had her bond revoked and will stay in jail until her trial begins, Channel 9 learned on Tuesday.
The State Attorney's Office pulled 19-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt's plea deal Monday following allegations last week that she had violated her pretrial conditions and contacted the girl identified as the victim in her case.
Hunt was booked into the Indian River County Jail Monday, almost a week after her 19th birthday.
The judge said Tuesday that Hunt chose to willfully violate the conditions of her bond on several occasions.
Prosecutors said Hunt violated court orders by sending 20,000 text messages to the victim.
Prosecutors also said Hunt sent the girl 25 lewd photos.
"The victim told me that Kaitlyn Hunt spoke with her about giving her an iPod," said Detective Jeremy Shepherd of the Indian River Sheriff's Office. "I also observed videos and pictures of Kaitlyn Hunt."
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 stupid...you want me to go in jail...you're such a messed up person...you snitched on me."
The state insisted the judge revoke Hunt's bond, insisting Hunt coached the victim in what to say and even made her feel guilty after the victim's father found the iPod.
While the victim's parents left the court grinning, Hunt's father wiped tears away.
Hunt's attorneys asked for house arrest with no electronic devices but the judge said Hunt can't be trusted to abide by the court order and sent her back to jail until the trial begins.
The deal that was pulled would have spared Hunt jail time and registration as a sex offender but added a felony count to her charges.
Hunt was charged in February with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery and later released on $5,000 bail.
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.
