Vero Beach – The 19-year-old woman at the center of a lesbian, underage sex case has been released from jail.
Kate Hunt was escorted out of jail by six deputies waiting in an SUV 1 a.m. Dec. 20.
Hunt was arrested in February on sexual battery charges for having sex with a 14-year-old schoolmate when she was 18. The younger girl’s parents turned Hunt in, and Hunt’s father alleged that their motivations were anti-gay. An initial plea deal was withdrawn when it turned out Hunt and the girl continued to contact each other after Hunt’s arrest. In the end, Hunt pleaded no contest to battery, interference with child custody and contributing to the dependency of a child.
The remainder of Hunt’s sentence is 3 years of probation, 2 of those years on house arrest.
