VERO BEACH (CBSMiami/AP) — The teenager convicted of having sex with her underage girlfriend was released from jail Friday morning after finishing her sentence.
Kaitlyn Hunt left the Indian River County Jail around 1 a.m. Friday. She quickly rode away with her family. As part of a deal with prosecutors, the 19-year-old had 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 A previous plea deal was withdrawn in August following allegations that Hunt exchanged thousands of texts with the girl and sent her nude photos.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.
