VERO BEACH — A 19-year-old woman accused of having sex with her underage girlfriend will remain in jail until her trial.
A judge ordered Kaitlyn Hunt held without bail during a hearing Tuesday.
Hunt was booked into the Indian River County Jail on Monday night, facing a new charge of transmitting material by electronic equipment harmful to a minor. She was previously charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery on a child.
Authorities said Hunt had sex with her girlfriend, then 14, last year. Hunt argued the sex was consensual.
Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers reported that the state attorney’s office pulled a plea offer Monday following allegations Hunt violated her pretrial conditions and contacted the girl identified as the victim in the case.
Prosecutors said Hunt exchanged thousands of texts with the girl and sent her nude photos.
