Stop Florida from prosecuting an 18-year-old for being in love
Kaitlyn Hunt was a bright and popular student set to graduate from Sebastian River High School in Florida. However, because she fell in love, she was expelled from school. Worse, she also faces a two-year sentence of house arrest, mandatory sex offender counseling and may have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
What happened is that the parents of Kate's 15-year old girlfriend did not approve of their same-sex relationship. So, they waited until Kate turned 18, and then had police take her away in handcuffs. The State’s Attorney in this red Florida county then pressed charges against Kate for “lewd and lascivious battery” of a minor.
Now, Kate faces a criminal conviction that could jeopardize her ability to go to college and get a job for the rest of her life.
Please sign our petition demanding that Indian River County State’s Attorneys Bruce Colton and Brian Workman stop their prosecution of Kaitlyn Hunt for being in a same-sex relationship.
