Sup Travellers?! I was just about to call it a day in the blogosphere when a news report about an 18 year old lesbian pedophile hit my radar. Now, this report has had many mixed reactions because of the sensitivity of the topic. Should the girl be arrested for what she did? Or should the law let it slide? You decide. Read on.

According to reports from the New York Daily News, an 18 year old Florida student named Kaitlyn Hunt is in serious trouble for being in a lesbian relationship with a 15 year old girl. Now, the crime does sound a bit minor but according to Florida law Hunt could see up to 15 years in prison and must register as a sex offender. However, a plea deal remains on the table that would give Hunt two years' house arrest and one year of probation.



Hunt’s uncle, Andrew Gay, told the Daily News that the girls were in the same social circle at Sebastian River High School and played together on the basketball team. In September, after Hunt turned 18, she and the other girl, a freshman, began dating and expressed their relationship in “intimate ways,” the family said.
But when the basketball coach found out about their relationship, Hunt was thrown off the team and the other girl’s parents were notified. The parents then told police, and a phone call was recorded between their daughter and Hunt in which the girls discussed their relationship, Gay said. Hunt was later expelled and arrested. It must also be noted that the relationship was consensual.

The mother began an online petition to stop the prosecution of her daughter. The number of supporters currently is larger than the non supporters so it's success is evident. Even the hack group, "Anonymous" is showing their support for the girl. However, justice is justice and the law is the law. If it was a heterosexual relationship and the perpetrator was a guy, the guy wouldn't have gotten much support. There has been many instances where homosexual and heterosexual pedophiles were arrested for their actions and Hunt's situation, consensual or non consensual, isn't much different. 

I'm not saying that I want her to go to jail, i'm just saying that equality should be a huge factor in the judgement of young Hunt. I don't think that because she's a female she should be given special treatment when it comes to the law. But I do think that 15 years is a bit too harsh of a punishment if you ask me. Anyway, whatever happens to young Hunt, it doesn't change the fact that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.

  1. I agree. Not because she is a female she should be given special treatment. N 15yrs in jail for an 18yr old does seem a bit too harsh.

    This is so stupid, there are more important issues in the world that need to be addressed, How many high school relationships are there in the US today that thread that thin line of a 18 year old dating a minor? People need just mind their own business.

    This is just simply a waste of time. Talk about equality, there are MILLIONS of guys 18+, even 20+ dating girls "underage" and none of these relationships see this much attention or do these boys face jail time. Driving force to this prosecution by the 15 year old's parents is the fact that its a lesbian relationship. I can bet anything that coach would not have intervene if the 18 year old was a guy, nor would these parents be taking such drastic measures. Not seeing the equality there.
