SEBASTIAN, FL - Kelley Hunt Smith said it's been a nightmare since her daughter, 18-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt, was arrested on a charge of "lewd and lascivious battery of a child 12 to 16.
The state attorney's office has offered Kaitlyn a plea deal, which would include two years of house arrest.
Smith doesn't feel Kaitlyn deserves the penalty if they don't accept, and they lose her case. She denies her daughter's actions were criminal.
"She would have a lifetime sexual offender on her record," said Smith. "She would not be able to, we think we all know what that means. It's a death sentence for her, her life would be over at 18."
"Kaitlyn would not hurt a fly," said Smith. "She didn't know what she was doing was quote, unquote 'wrong' or illegal. There was no intent to hurt anybody or commit a crime. I know that's not an excuse for the letter of the law, but it's reality."
Now I cannot find the original article I read but it did state the parents were upset that their daughter was in a same sex relationship. (I will try to find it)
What are your thoughts on this? Are the parents doing the right thing? Do you disagree
