Kaitlyn Hunt's mother under attack by bloggers who say 'Free Kate' is all lies [View all]

Kaitlyn Hunt, the Florida teen charged with committing lewd and lascivious acts on her younger girlfriend, declined a plea deal on Friday, opting for a trial by jury next month. According to a May 26 New York Daily News report, the younger girl’s parents finally addressed the media, saying they warned the 18-year-old to stay away from their daughter. The Hunt family, especially Kate’s mother, Kelley Hunt Smith, are now being called liars.

Hunt-Smith went public with Kaitlyn’s legal troubles on May 17, one week before a decision on the plea deal was due. The Facebook group “Free Kate” was formed, which now has over 50K members, and the case got international attention.

Kate Hunt was an 18-year-old senior. Her girlfriend was a 14-year-old freshman at her high school. Misreporting in the case initially had the girls at 15 and 17, stating that the Smiths waited until Hunt was 18 to go to the police.

This false information didn’t come from the Hunt family. Kaitlyn’s mom first explained the situation as:

I bolded an interesting claim by Kaitlyn's mom, that I questioned whether or not it was true or yet another lie. It didn't take me long to find this post by Kaitlyn's dad:

While Kate was three years older than her girlfriend, they were peers. But when Kate's girlfriend's parents learned of their relationship, they went directly to the police to press charges without sharing their objections with Kate or her family.


snip...

This relationship occurred when they were both minors, and my daughter's girlfriend's parents waited until she turned 18 to arrest her.



That first quote has been contradicted by the younger girl's parents, and in all fairness could well be a case of "he said, she said". But the second quote is definitely false, and this definitely came from Kaitlyn Hunt's family.



Now they are blaming the media for bad reporting, just like they blamed the victim's parents for coming after Kate because it was a homosexual relationship. When will they stop blaming other people and take responsibility for a change?
