Kaitlyn Hunt Has Plea Deal Taken From Her After She Allegedly Stays In Touch With Underage Victim

Categories: News

The plea deal that would have kept Kaitlyn Hunt out of jail has been withdrawn by the prosecution.

In addition to having her charges reduced to misdemeanors, the deal would have also kept Hunt off the sex offender registry.

But now the prosecution contends that Hunt violated her pre-trial release court order when she sent thousands of text messages, including naked photos, to the girl she's accused of having sexual relations with when the victim was 14-years old.

The judge had ordered Hunt to cut off all communication with the victim. Prosecutors also alleged that Hunt's mother, Kelley Hunt Smith, also stayed in touch with the victim, and told her to delete the texts from Kaitlyn so she wouldn't get in trouble.

Now not only has Hunt had her plea deal taken off the table, but she is also scheduled to meet with the judge on Tuesday to find out if she'll be going back to jail should these violations prove to be true.

Prosecutors had said the deal was still on the table as early as Friday, with the violations looming. But now the prosecution says there is no more deal, which means Hunt is facing felony charges. She could now be facing jail time, and may have to register as a sex offender.

Hunt was arrested back in May on "lewd and lascivious battery of a child 12 to 16 years old" charges because of her same-sex relationship with a fellow student, who was 14 at the time.

Kaitlyn has received an overwhelming amount of support online since her arrest, particularly from those who believe this is a gay rights issue.

Kaitlyn's mother had started a "Free Kate" Facebook page after she was arrested, the family started an online "Stop The Hate" petition, which so far has over 300,000 signatures.

The family says Kaitlyn's girlfriend's parents had pressed charges because they simply couldn't handle their daughter being in a same-sex relationship.

There was also a rally organized in Kate's honor in Riverview Park in Sebastian back in May. Supporters showed up with signs that read "Don't waste my tax $ on nonsense," while t-shirts that read, "Stop the Hate, Free Kate," were sold.

This no longer a gay rights issue if it ever was. This is now officially about statutory rape, aiding and abetting the delinquency of a minor, and you can throw in conspiracy charges with the Mom fully involved.

Let's just say if I'm on the jury, she's going to jail. Period!

This still remains the dumbest criminal case ever.  Still want to know how the parents would have felt if their daughter and hooked up with a male senior student.

It would be no different as far as the arrest is concerned but he would've likely been treated much more harshly.   They are much harder on males who commit sex offenses.   I know of a 16 year old who went to juvey for having sex with his 13 year old girl.    Nobody cared.    Men and boys are all perverts so lock them up and the story is very rarely even in the news.    But a female?    Everybody feels sorry for her?   WTF?

@smdrpepper  This may be the dumbest comment I've read so far about this case. Do you know anything about it or just get your information from the Hunts? Facts not in dispute:

18 year old start having sex with 14 year old, including in the school restroom

Victim's parents asks 18 year old multiple times to stop the relationship with their underage daughter. 18 year old not only refuses but arranges the 14 year old to sneak out on a Friday night and spend the night and most of Saturday at her house, causing the victim's parents to file a missing person's report because they had no idea where their daughter was.

18 year old mom's spread lies about the relationship, misidentifying the ages of the girls, the motivation of the victim's parents, and trying to turn this into a gay rights cause. Have you noticed how many of the gay rights organizations that initially supported her have ceased doing so?

When you add these charges to the mix it's apparent that Hunt is a predator who thinks she's above the law and her mom has joined into a conspiracy to cover it up and destroy evidence, which proves they knew what they were doing was wrong.

Your comments just shows you probably don't have kids of your own.

@arch4bam @smdrpepper And guess what?  You just described every single high school relationship ever.  One should apply logic to these cases, something that has not been done.

Thought I would just mention that if you live in a jurisdiction that prosecutes these offenses then it's actually unusual for a senior to date a freshman.    It's frowned upon amongst teens.    But then again nobody wants to get locked up so the culture is a bit different..    

"You just described every single high school relationship ever.  One should apply logic to these cases, something that has not been done."

Just because it's that way in your community doesn't mean it's the same everywhere.

@smdrpepper @arch4bam This attitude of "well they're going to do it anyways so let's just let them" baffles me. By that logic we should just let teens drink and drive. I mean they're going to do it anyways.
