Kaitlyn Hunt Offered New Plea Deal

Thursday Oct 3, 2013

VERO BEACH, Fla. - Prosecutors have offered a new plea deal to a Florida teen accused of having sex with her underage girlfriend.

The state attorney's office in Indian River County reports making the offer Tuesday. An assistant for 19-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt's attorney on Wednesday said they weren't commenting on the deal.

Hunt was charged in February with having sex with a 14-year-old female schoolmate when she was 18-years-old. A previous plea deal was withdrawn in August following allegations that Hunt exchanged thousands of texts with the girl and sent her nude photos.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, and prosecutors added a charge of transmitting material harmful to a minor.

Under the new deal, Hunt would plead no contest to reduced charges. She would be released from jail Dec. 20 and serve 3 years of probation. She would also avoid a felony conviction and sex offender registration.
