VERO BEAH, FL (WFLX) - As 19-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt remains in jail, her attorney is lashing out in a letter targeting the prosecution and the parents of Hunt's 14-year-old girlfriend.
Julia Graves, Hunt's attorney, says she only had about 10 minutes last week to review the documents that proved Hunt violated the no contact order before the information was posted online by various media outlets.
"Prosecutors do have ethical obligations," she said. She later added, "It looks as though we have an alleged victim who doesn't agree with how things are being handeld by the state, her parents or their attorney."
Graves even went as far to claim, "The parents took all of her things in her room and boxed them up and is apparently hid by her parents."
We reached out to Charles Sullivan, Jr., the attorney for the now 15-year-old girl. He tells Fox 29 a statement will be released next week about these allegations calling them inflamatory.
Statement on behalf of Kaitlyn Hunt:
The actions in filing a detailed Notice of Violation of Pretrial Conditions such as the one filed in this case is almost a crime in and of itself. Of course this is my opinion as her counsel and as a parent. I fully understand what the law is. I do not know who is managing the case at this point as I receive a plea offer from Mr. Workman on Friday August 9th after 3:00 pm with no deadline to accept and a request to respond in writing for post conviction purposes one way or another. We quietly kept this to ourselves and were in the process of discussing the plea that takes time to answer all questions and fully understand the consequences. The last thing any attorney wants is a client entering a plea quickly without being fully informed. We have had motions scheduled on August 14th since June and we attended to take care of the closure of the courtroom motion by the State and a few deposition and address issues regarding witnesses. There was nothing out of the ordinary, other than it was made known a copy of the plea offer had been given to the media. Obviously until a case is settled and pled to it is imperative to still continue to prepare as though you are going to trial.
