Sex With Underaged Teen May Result In Lesbian Perpetrator Going To Jail Indicated Florida Criminal Defense Attorney

Lakeland, FL (Law Firm Newswire) October 4 , 2013 — The victim in this case was 14-years-old at the time of the alleged incident. The accused is being pressured into accepting a deal to keep her out of jail.

“Florida’s Kaitlyn Hunt, now 19, says she does not feel that she did something wrong by having consensual sex with a 14-year-old. A person under the age of 16 is not legally able to give consent, and therein lies the issue,” explained Thomas Grajek, a Lakeland criminal defense attorney.

Hunt was charged, after the underaged teen’s parents went to police, with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery. In an attempt to keep the 19-year-old out of jail, prosecutors have offered her yet another plea deal. The second deal would see her plead to two misdemeanor battery counts and one felony for interference of child custody. “The deal also said the second felony count could be expunged from her record at a later date,” said Grajek.

If Hunt did choose to accept the second deal, there would be no jail time, she would not need to register as a sex offender or have to wear an ankle bracelet. She would be required to do community service while on probation. The deal was apparently rejected by Hunt’s lawyer, which could mean a 15-year prison term if she were to be convicted as charged should the case go to trial, later this year.

“The case has generated a significant amount of controversy given the nature of the relationship between the two young girls. Many feel the case is about the alleged victim’s family making an issue out of the fact that the accused is gay. Whatever the controversy is surrounding this case, the young lady deserves a well thought out defense. There are a number of issues that would need to be addressed, as sex crimes have different rules of evidence,” stated Grajek.

Anyone charged with a sex crime, being investigated for a sex crime, or who is about to be charged with a sex crime, needs the services of an aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorney. “An accused needs to know their rights in order to protect themselves,” Grajek added.
