New Allegations Against Kaitlyn Hunt, The Florida Teen Facing Charges For Relationship With Underage Female Classmate

We reported earlier this year on Kaitlyn Hunt, the Florida teen who's facing charges as a result of her sexual relationship with a younger female high school classmate.

Though Hunt has been under court order to stay away from the girl, the state now claims she's been in violation of her pre-trial release. Could Kaitlyn be headed to jail?

The Raw Story reports:

According to prosecutors, Kaitlyn Hunt, the lesbian basketball player accused of having sex with her 14-year-old teammate, defied court orders by not only remaining in contact with the underage girl, but having intimate contact with her as recently as two weeks ago. The two have reportedly been in almost daily contact since Hunt’s last day at Sebastian River High six months ago, when prosecutors allege that Hunt “placed an iPod into the child victim’s locker.”

The state claims to be in possession of “approximately 20,000 text messages,” including over twenty-five explicit photographs of Hunt nude and at least two videos in which she is masturbating. All of the photographs and videos were sent after the court had ordered Hunt not to have any contact with the teenager.

Hunt allegedly knew that she was violating the court order and that doing so could land her jail. Shortly after giving the girl the iPod in May, Hunt reportedly implored her to “be careful,” because “[i]f they find out we talked I’m going to jail.”

The more serious allegation by prosecutors is that Hunt repeatedly met with the teenager, a direction violation of the court order that she not come within 500 feet of her. Prosecutors claim that “the defendant coordinated secret meetings with the child victim,” during which the two “would have intimate personal contact.” Because the Florida criminal code defines this contact as a “dangerous crime,” prosecutors petitioned the court to order a pretrial detention of Hunt and possibly her mother, Kelley Hunt Smith, who is accused of instructing her daughter’s alleged victim to destroy all evidence of the unlawful contact.

Hunt had been offered a deal that did not involve jail time or registering as a sex offender if she plead no contest to two misdemeanor counts of battery and one felony count of interference of child custody. She had not indicated whether she would accept it at the time this new evidence was revealed.

What do you think, Instincters? Do these new allegations change your opinion of Kaitlyn's case?

Should she be punished if it's concluded that she's been violating court orders?

This is crazy.  They are both teens its rediculous.  Victim.  PLEASE!   NONSENSE!

Kaitlyn should absolutely be in jail until resolution of this case, if not longer.  Her blatant disregard for the protections for the child victim put into place by Judge Pegg were willful and arrogant.  Kelley Hunt Smith, Kaitlyn's mother, should also face at least a minimal sentence for communicating with the child victim.  Thus far, the prosecution, police and the court have done their jobs. I feel for the Smith family.

Well there's not much defense if she's clearly violating court orders.
