Kaitlyn Hunt accepts new plea deal

By Jon Shainman

VERO BEACH, FL (WFLX) - The plea deal offered to Kaitlyn Hunt will be accepted according to 19th Judicial District State Attorney Bruce Colton.

He says she will plead either no contest or guilty.   

He say it will be signed off by the defendant either beforehand or in open court tomorrow at 11. 

The judge then will likely sentence her based on the recommendations in the plea deal.

Hunt was charged with having sex with a 14-year-old female schoolmate when she was 18-years-old.

A plea deal that had been in place in August was withdrawn after the prosecution alleged Hunt had been sending thousands of text messages to the alleged victim, including naked pictures.

She has been in jail ever since.

Hunt was charged in February with the two lewd and lascivious counts, and jailed. She posted $5,000 bail then and was released, with the pretrial court order prohibiting her from contact with the victim.

According to court records, sheriff's investigators say that after Hunt's arrest on Feb. 16, she violated a court no-contact order by having repeated contact with the victim. In some instances that included their secretly meeting and having physical contact.
