Kaitlyn Hunt, 19, has accepted a new plea deal that will have her out of jail by the end of the year, with three years of probation. She turned herself in to authorities in August after she faced charges for having sexual relations with her 14-year-old girlfriend.
Kaitlyn Hunt’s case has drawn national attention because of suggestions by the 19-year-old’s family that their daughter was facing charges only because she is gay.
Kaitlyn Hunt, a senior at a Florida high school, has been expelled and is facing criminal charges as a result of a consensual, same-sex relationship with another student. Her parents have started an internet campaign to rally the public in her defense.
