I agree. This is about an adult having sex with a child, who because of her age, legally cannot give her consent.

Throw the book at her ! 60 years in the slammer !

My concern is that the ages keep changing. First the 2 involved were 18 years old and 15 years old......but the relationship started when Hunt was 17 years old.

Now the age of the younger girl has been stated as 14 years old and of Hunt 18 years old when the relationship started......and in my mind that makes this a different case!!!!

Frankly, from all that I have read on this case.......the law is ONLY enforced when the parents of the younger party DON'T like the relationship or the older party.......and that's what this case appears to be, and the parents of the younger party WAITED until Hunt was over the age of 18 by 6 months......why did they not confront Hunt and her family before if they knew about the relationship or were they waiting just to hurt the other like they are?

If the relationship started before Hunt turned 18 years old.......then she is being persecuted strictly because of her sexual orientation because these types of relationships happen all of the time in High School and NOTHING is done about it UNLESS the parents don't like it!!!

Florida has a "Romeo and Juliet" law that specifically covers an 18 year old dating a 15 year old. Why is this even being pursued by the legal authorities at all?

This could have happened because it was a guy with tattoos or a guy who's father was disliked by her parents or because the girls parents strongly disapprove of premarital sex. It's not about being lesbians. This 18 year old girls parents should have spent more time teaching her the law and they could spend less time being outraged now.

How does the prosecutor plan to produce evidence of sex?

Is he going to ram a camera into a dark place and hope the flash goes off?

Christian conservatives run Florida and they are very selective when it comes to enforcing laws.

My problem is they turn a blind eye (not always but as a whole) in the bible belt of Florida where teenage pregnancy is rampant.

This is a ludicrous application of the law. It is happening only because the parents of the younger girl object to the relationship and the suggestrion that their daughter might be, gasp, gay. The two were legally involved until one suddenly turned a year older. Then the parents jumped. If the younger girl was old enough to decide to become involved with the older girl when the older one was 17, why is she now too young to make that decision after her girlfriend turned 18. This is so stupid it makes my teeth itch. But it is just what I expect out of Florida, a state that has made a virtue of being the source of some of the ugliest and most stupid stories of the the last two decades. And this sheriff fits into this very nicely.

Pepper, please climb back into your closet and let the grownups talk. And don't you have some homework to do anyway? Your ninth grade remedial English project, for instance?

Because she's gay and we all know that is the real reason why. Those persecuting and prosecuting will not admit that though.

I would tend to agree with ya.......the age of Kaitlyn is what she be used when the relationship started......not just because she turned 18!!!

What's an 18 year old doing hanging out with a 14 year old ? What would everyone be saying if an 18 year old boy had a sexual relationship with a 14 year old girl ? What would your parents say if you were 14 and an 18 year old came driving up to pick you up for a weekend date. Let's get real, she broke the law and should be punished.

Amazing that you Queers say you want equality, them bitc:h because you have to abide by the same laws that Heteros do. You sound like the black gang member saying, you're not arresting me because of the driveby shooting, you're arresting me because I'm black.
Sound familiar??

There is no sex because two lesbians cannot copulate (copulate = couple)

A law which allows a 23 year-old to have sex with a 16 year-old, who cannot otherwise legally consent to sex, but criminalizes a high school senior for having sex with a freshman, once the senior turns 18, seems to be more than a bit flawed in its reasoning.

They are only charging her for acts committed after she turned 18, when she was 17, they were BOTH breaking the law by having sex with someone under 18.
