Gay Fla. teen back in jail after plea deal pulled

VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A Florida teen accused of having sex with her underage girlfriend is back in jail after prosecutors withdrew a plea deal.

Authorities say 19-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt was booked into the Indian River County Jail on Monday night. She remained in jail Tuesday morning, charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child.

The state attorney’s office pulled its plea offer Monday following allegations Hunt violated her pretrial conditions and contacted the girl. She’s scheduled for a hearing Tuesday afternoon.

Indian River County Sheriff’s Sgt. Thomas Raulen told Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers ( the bond company that posted Hunt’s bail brought her to jail.

Authorities say Hunt had sex with her then-14-year-old girlfriend last year. Hunt argues the sex was consensual, but Florida law considers sex with a person under 16 a felony.
