Prosecutors Pull Plea Deal For Gay Fla. Teen

VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Prosecutors have withdrawn a plea deal to a Florida teen accused of having sex with her underage girlfriend.

The state attorney’s office reports that it pulled 19-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt’s deal Monday, following allegations last week that she had violated her pretrial conditions and contacted the girl identified as the victim in her case. The deal would have spared Hunt jail time and registration as a sex offender but added a felony count to her charges.

Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers (http://goo.gl/ORikW5 ) reports that Hunt was charged in February with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery and later released on $5,000 bail.

Authorities say 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.
