"The sheriff said the relationship between the victim and Hunt began when the victim was 14 and progressed to sexual acts after Hunt was 18, of which he said she has confessed.
Loar said the age of consent is 16 in Florida, and they have investigated and prosecuted many other similar cases, including same-sex cases.
"That has nothing to do with it," said Loar. "If this was an 18-year-old male and that was a 14-year-old girl, it would have been prosecuted the same way."
Hunt's parents maintain the other girl's parents made the criminal complaint because they were angry that their daughter was in a homosexual relationship and waited until Hunt turned 18 to pursue charges.
Hunt faces up to 15 years in prison if convicted.
