FULL TITLE: Lesbian high school cheerleader offered plea deal on her 19th birthday to avoid jail for having sex with classmate, 14, after thousands sign petition to support her
A high school cheerleader arrested on felony sexual assault charges for her relationship with a 14-year-old female classmate has been offered a plea deal on her 19th birthday.
Kaitlyn Hunt is being urged to accept the new deal which would keep her out of jail and prevent her from being registered as a sex offender - if she pleads no contest to two misdemeanor battery counts and one felony count for interference of child custody.
Her case attracted a glut of publicity after her parents did multiple interviews, claiming that their daughter was only charged because she is gay. As of May, 300,000 people have signed an online petition to have the charges against the teenager dropped.
Hunt, from Florida, is facing felony charges of lewd and lascivious activity. If she goes to trial, she faces 15 years in prison if convicted
As of Wednesday, Hunt had not make it known if she would accept the deal.
Under a previous plea deal in May, Kaitlyn would have been forced to register as a sex offender as well as remain on house arrest for two years.
The latest plea deal was offered by the Florida state attorney's office in July, reported CNN, because it balances the needs of Hunt, the unidentified teenage girl and their parents.

I thought she wasn’t really a lesbian, she just claimed that to get out of trouble.
Oddly enough...nobody wants to a ‘guilty’ ‘not guilty’ charge on this one :-)I’ll let someone else post a picture.
Nope, no double standard applied!
Gays - some are more equal than others.
So homosexual pedophiles get a pass?
Perfectly logical. (Sarcasm.)
“Stop the rape; Jail Kate.”
Objectively speaking, it’s a hell of a good deal, and she’d be foolish not to take it. If I were in her shoes, I’d be saying, “Where’s a pen and where do I sign?!”
If this were a 19-year old dude with a 14-year old girl, we know what the reaction would be.
I disagree. This deal seems to make light of what happened, when compared to what would most likely have occurred if this had been a male-female case.
It helps to be a pretty lesbian - and having a completely empty head is probably worth extra points.
Looks like she forgot the mascara one that one eye.
“I thought she wasnt really a lesbian, she just claimed that to get out of trouble.”
Considering that the reason she was IN trouble was that she had sex with a 14-year-old girl, I’m not sure how that would have helped her get out of trouble.
Go back and read the stories. This was spun with a, “Romeo and Juliet,” defense that the younger girl’s evil, homophobic parents were against their daughter’s true love.
Imagine if an 18 year old male had seduced and had sex with this underage girl. I doubt the male would have been given this plea deal or had thousands of sympathy letters. The little lesbian is getting off easy and she should take the deal and go away.
First they are not classmates, unless the 19 year old has been held back for 4 years. They are schoolmates.
And Yes: if this were a 19 year old boy the same sheitheads who want to turn this girl loose would want to hang the boy by his balls.
My daughter just turned 20, she's got a great boyfriend, and they're happy. But I remember very well when she was just 14.
If anybody 19, male or female, had put moves on her when she was 14, I would have gone ballistic.
One, a 5-year difference at that age is HUGE. It's college sophomore vs. high-school freshman. YIKES!
Two, a sexual relationship, anything much beyond kissing (mouth-to-mouth, thank you), is totally inappropriate at 14.
Three, as a guy, I know full well what would have happened to me at age 19 if I'd gotten caught fooling around with a 14 yr old girl. And whatever that punishment was probably would have been about right, too. That's just not a good thing.
The older girl should take the deal and go with it, stop whining, and count her blessings and good fortune.
How many 18 and 19 year old “boys” have been prosecuted and ordered to register as sex offenders for life because they had sex with underage girl friends? This is BS, prosecute her exactly the same. After all is it the “gays” who are demanding to be treated equally in marriage? It’s only fair they get treated the same for statutory rape. No special treatment for perverts.
If the 14 year old was a boy, there is a large contingent of freepers who would be saying “There’s no crime here, he’s a lucky guy”
I would think that she would have to register if she moved to another state. But she should have to register in FL, she has "short eyes".
