Kaitlyn Hunt Accepts New Plea Deal
Kaitlyn Hunt—the 19-year-old Florida woman jailed for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl—has accepted a new plea deal.
As we previously reported back in August, Florida prosecutors withdrew Hunt's previous plea deal after allegations that the older woman had sent thousands of messages, including naked pictures, to the 14-year-old.
Prosecutor Brian Workman had the following to say about Hunt's new plea deal (via CNN.com):
Hunt will plead no contest to five charges, including two counts of misdemeanor battery, misdemeanor contributing to the dependency of a child and two counts of felony interference with child custody.
Hunt would be sentenced to four months in jail, to be followed by two years of house arrest with electronic monitoring, and nine months of monitored probation after that.
If she has no violations, she will not be a convicted felon under Florida law, and she will have the possibility of sealing her file and having the case expunged after 10 years.
Hunt has been in jail since August 20 for violating a court order not to contact the alleged victim.
What do you think about the new plea deal, Instincters? Is it fair?
