Prosecutors Say Kaitlyn Hunt, Defendant in Teen Sex Case, Maintained Sexual Contact With Alleged Victim Throughout Pre-Trial Release

All Kaitlyn Hunt had to do to avoid jail time was keep her hands to herself. Although the 19 year old originally faced two felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery for a relationship with a then-14-year-old classmate, she was offered a deal yesterday that would have kept her off the sex offender registry and reduced her charges to misdemeanors. She was on pre-trial release, too, and living at home.

Hunt, who garnered sympathy from the LGBT community, originally faced 15 years of jail time. But yesterday, the state attorneys office said that Hunt violated a court order to keep away from the younger girl, committing a litany of offenses that will almost certainly prevent her from getting away free and clear.

Simply put: Kaitlyn Hunt did it to herself.

The prosecutors' motion states that on March 1, her last day of school, Hunt placed an iPod in the younger girl's locker. The two had almost daily contact through the device, wracking up more than 20,000 text messages and hours of Facetime.

Hunt obviously knew what she was getting into. "Keep the fuck quiet," she told the other girl, according to prosecutors. Growing more paranoid, she said, "If my mom finds out we're talking I'm blaming it on you."

But more damning than the texts are the nude selfies Hunt allegedly left on the phone, including images and videos of her masturbating. In case you don't know what this means, the state attorney's office spells out that this occurred by Hunt "rubbing her vagina with her fingers while moaning."

The two were also meeting up to smoke weed and have sex. This went on up until two weeks ago, when the younger girl told her parents. Enraged, Hunt sent a final missive: "Fuck you...you're stupid...You want me in jail...You're such a messed up person...You snitched on me...God only knows what you'll do when pressured in court. Bye."

Kaitlyn's mom told Riptide yesterday that the two girls hadn't seen each other since a hearing that occurred shortly after Kaitlyn was expelled from Sebastian River High School. However, more texts reveal that Hunt's mom, Kelley, knew the two were continuing their relationship. On March 26, she texted the young girl "PLEASE delete everything and make sure NO ONE finds out you've spoken to Kate at all."

Young love makes people do some stupid, stupid things, such as exchanging 20,000 text messages with another human. But this whole scenario is truly baffling. Kaitlyn Hunt worked her way down from a life-ruining set of charges to what would have been, comparatively, an inconvenience. All she had to do was stay away from the younger girl. She had to take no action, put forth no effort and do nothing to get herself out of some extremely serious trouble. But for some reason that didn't happen.

1)  Kaitlyn continues to finger that little girl's coochie.  How's the petition drive going?  Anonymous Hackers still on the warpath?

2)  Kaitlyn's mom is guilty of obstruction of justice because she cannot stay away from the child victim any better than her daughter can.

Kate committed worse crimes after being granted bail than she did before. Lack of sexual self control is exactly what defines a sex offender. Lack of self control after being arrested indicates a predator. Kate can now join the tens of thousands of young men 18-24 on the sex offender registry who had sex with girls that were too young. If you want to be treated equally, do not be upset when that equal treatment is unpleasant. I do not know any parents, except maybe the Hunts, who are perfectly OK with their 14 year old daughters having sex with an adult in school, as a runaway, using drugs and being enabled by the offender's parents.

If true, it was a bonehead move. You can't win a battle of wills against the court, kid. Somebody should have told you that.

Kudos to Allie for the followup with facts.     Ms Conti  MNT usually frowns upon too many facts so  be careful

Why am I not surprised?  This predator knew what she was doing was wrong the first time she got caught.  Why would she stop being a predator, after a slap on the wrist?   

Her parents tried very hard to cover that "mistake" up also.  In fact instead of owning up to it they destroyed the peace of victims life with lies and deceit.    Her parents have shown repeated poor judgement in raising their children.   I really hope they go after the mother and lock her up also.  I would be surprised the father didn't know about it also.  Which would be a violation of his probation so lock him up.  That leaves the younger sister which hopefully would be sent to a foster family who really cares and gets her straighten out before she ends up like her older relatives. 

I hope all the people that jumped on the whole #FreeKate wagon and donated to protect her from being a victim of a "hate" law, jump up and foot the extra legal bill they helped run up, now they see she is a predator. I'm sure they won't because they still are hoping that Kate is in "love" and just couldn't help pleasuring herself.   Cause that's what people who are in love do right they masturbate to show their devotion.

Way too many apparently! I love how in comments like yours you make a comparison with the victim's current age. This ILLEGAL sexual contact started when the victim was 14 years old and has continued ILLEGALLY after 2 judges orders forbidding her from having contact. The advantage that an 18 year old and 19 year old (or older) has over a 14 year old is frightening. At that age it is very easy for the older party to coerce and groom the younger party to think and feel that what is going in is normal an ok. It is not appropriate for youths to be having sex. They are absolutely not equipped for the emotional damage that it can and will inflict on their already fragile psyche AND developing brain. I am tired of hearing this excuse that because something is done with frequency that it is then ok. There are millions of morons who drive drunk every year... does that mean it is a waste of time to prosecute it "because people driving around drunk happens everyday..."(replaced for Teenage fooling around)

the victim was 14.    If having sex with 14 year olds is ok  what about 13? 12?
