A teenage couple in Florida is making news because of their ages: one is 18 and the other is 14. The 18-year-old, Kaitlyn Hunt is facing criminal sex offense charges of lewd and lascivious assault on a minor based on a sexual relationship she had with a 14-year-old classmate. Hunt is facing registration as a sex offender if convicted of the underage sex crime.
Hunt insists that the relationship with the 14-year-old female student was consensual. The two attend the same Florida high school. She is hopeful, however, that Florida's Romeo and Juliet law will spare her from lifetime registry as a sex offender if she is convicted.
