Florida Teen Arrested, Expelled for Same-Sex Relationship

By Neal Broverman

A sad story is emerging from Florida involving a teen arrested and expelled for a lesbian relationship. 

UPDATE: Find details about the couple and the charges here. 

Kaitlyn Hunt was a popular student at Sebastian River High School, participating in everything from cheerleading to basketball. Hunt began dating another female student and the latter girl's parents became enraged, according to Hunt's parents. Kaitlyn was 17 at the time the relationship began, while her girlfriend was 15. Upon Kaitlyn's 18th birthday, her girlfriend's parents sent the police to the Hunt home and the teenager was arrested.

Hunt was charged with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child. Then, weeks before her graduation, Hunt was expelled from school. 

"[The girlfriend's parents] are out to destroy my daughter," Hunt's mother told the Examiner, "because they feel like she 'made' their daughter gay. They see being gay as wrong and they blame my daughter. Of course, I see it 100% differently. I don't see or label these girls as gay. They are teenagers in high school experimenting with their sexuality -- with mutual consent. And even if their daughter is gay, who cares? She is still their daughter."

The attorney general offered Kaitlyn two years of house arrest and a year of probation. Her parents are asking people to sign a Change.org petition that urges authorities to drop or lessen the charges.
