Sex With Underaged Teen May Result In Lesbian Perpetrator Going To Jail Indicated Florida Criminal Defense Attorney

Lakeland, FL (Law Firm Newswire) October 4 , 2013 - The victim in this case was 14-years-old at the time of the alleged incident. The accused is being pressured into accepting a deal to keep her out of jail.

“Florida’s Kaitlyn Hunt, now 19, says she does not feel that she did something wrong by having consensual sex with a 14-year-old. A person under the age of 16 is not legally able to give consent, and therein lies the issue,” explained Thomas Grajek, a Lakeland criminal defense attorney.

Hunt was charged, after the underaged teen’s parents went to police, with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery. In an attempt to keep the 19-year-old out of jail, prosecutors have offered her yet another plea deal. The second deal would see her plead to two misdemeanor battery counts and one felony for interference of child custody. “The deal also said the second felony count could be expunged from her record at a later date,” said Grajek.

If Hunt did choose to accept the second deal, there would be no jail time, she would not need to register as a sex offender or have to wear an ankle bracelet. She would be required to do community service while on probation. The deal was apparently rejected by Hunt’s lawyer, which could mean a 15-year prison term if she were to be convicted as charged should the case go to trial, later this year.

“The case has generated a significant amount of controversy given the nature of the relationship between the two young girls. Many feel the case is about the alleged victim’s family making an issue out of the fact that the accused is gay. Whatever the controversy is surrounding this case, the young lady deserves a well thought out defense. There are a number of issues that would need to be addressed, as sex crimes have different rules of evidence,” stated Grajek.

Anyone charged with a sex crime, being investigated for a sex crime, or who is about to be charged with a sex crime, needs the services of an aggressive and experienced criminal defense attorney. “An accused needs to know their rights in order to protect themselves,” Grajek added.

  • Florida sex crime attorney Thomas Grajek on the "sex on the beach" case sentencing
    Today the infamous couple convicted of having “Sex on the Beach” are scheduled to be sentenced today.  I have previously posted about this case explaining how serious this charge can be at: http://www.flcrimedefense.com/2015/05/florida-couple-found-guilty-of-sex-on-the-beach-and-now-will-be-classified-as-sexual-offenders-and-face-prison-time/ Bay News 9 is reporting that the prosecutor is only seeking 2 1/2 years in prison for the male involved in the case.  If the judge agrees to mitigate Jose Caballero’s sentence to that prison sentence, it will be a hug break for him as he is facing a mandatory 15 years in prison.  The State can agree to mitigate the sentence which is one of the few […]
  • Do I need a lawyer for my criminal case? Can a criminal attorney do anything for me?
    If you have been arrested, I offer a free office consultation.  There are many things an arrested person needs to know before they go to court including that you may have a defense to the crime you did not even know about! Unfortunately, I get many calls months AFTER the individual pled out and now it’s too late to help them.  Today, someone called asking me how much I charge to expunge a record.  However, that person went to court with a Public Defender who did not handle the case correctly and the person was Adjudicated Guilty.  The Public Defender […]
  • Right to be Free From Unreasonable Seizures Is Protected by U.S. Supreme Court
    The story behind the lawsuit that eventually went before the U.S. Supreme Court began when police pulled a driver over for apparently driving erratically. When asked about his driving, the man said he had hit a pothole, and it jerked the vehicle over, so he had been righting the trajectory of the car. The officer asked the driver for his documentation — driver’s license, insurance, registration — and then asked the driver to come back to the cruiser with him. The driver declined. The officer questioned the passenger, called for backup, finished issuing tickets and asked the driver if he […]
