VERO BEACH, Fla. — A Florida teen accused of having sex with her underage girlfriend accepted a plea deal Thursday that her attorney says is in her best interest.

Kaitlyn Hunt, 19, pleaded no contest to battery, interference with child custody, and contributing to the dependency of a child. Hunt was charged in February with having sex with a 14-year-old female schoolmate. Hunt was 18 at the time. Under the terms of Thursday’s deal, Hunt will stay in jail until mid-December but won’t have to register as a sex offender.
