Fla. teen in underage sex case released from jail

VERO BEACH, Fla. (AP) – A Florida teen convicted of having sex with her underage girlfriend has been released from jail after finishing her sentence.

Jail records show Kaitlyn Hunt left the Indian River County Jail around 1 a.m. Friday. As part of a deal with prosecutors, the 19-year-old pleaded no contest in October to battery, interference with child custody and contributing to the dependency of a child.

Hunt was charged in February with having sex with a 14-year-old female schoolmate when she was 18. A previous plea deal was withdrawn in August following allegations that Hunt exchanged thousands of texts with the girl and sent her nude photos. A judge revoked her bond, sending her to jail, where she remained the past four months.

Under her plea deal, Hunt does not have to register as a sex offender.
