INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -- A plea deal will keep an Indian River County underage sex case from going to trial.
Last week, Kaitlyn Hunt, 19, accepted a plea deal from the state attorney's office that will include jail time until Dec. 20, probation, community control, community service and reduced charges in her case of sex with a minor.
The charges were downgraded to two counts of battery, two counts of interference with child custody and contributing to the dependency of a child. Ms. Hunt's sentence will include a total of three years of felony supervision, no contact with the victim and electronic monitoring, among other restrictions and standards.
Ms. Hunt was originally arrested and charged earlier this year at age 18 with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a minor, a then 14-year-old girl, and additionally charged with transmitting material harmful to a minor by electronic equipment.
With compliance to the terms in the plea agreement, Ms. Hunt will not have any felony convictions, will not have to register as a sex offender and will have the opportunity to petition the court to seal or expunge this case.
