Though much media coverage centered on the fact that this case was prosecuted because the nineteen year old adult and fourteen year old minor were engaged in a same sex relationship, just recently in New Jersey, a nineteen year old male was arrested and charged for having sexual relations with his fifteen year old girlfriend.

The nineteen year old and fifteen year old had been dating for several months, but the father of the fifteen year old girl wanted the relationship to end, so he reported it to the authorities.

According to Hunt, the relationship was consensual and began shortly after Hunt turned eighteen.

Freshmen and seniors may have elective classes and/or play sports together. Yet they may not date or have sexual encounters without fear of life changing effects.

To most, it is common knowledge that people who have reached the age of majority should not be romantically involved with minors.

BY ANAILI MEDINA — High school: a place to meet people? High school students usually span from ages fourteen to eighteen.

Or get into relationships that last, end, or get you in jail?

However, does a senior in high school feel like an adult?

Should a senior in high school be wary of getting into relationships with freshmen or sophomore students?The parents of the victim sought Hunt’s prosecution based on their allegations that, pursuant to Florida law, Hunt and their daughter engaged in an inappropriate and illegal relationship.When Hunt was initially asked if she thought she had done something wrong, she stated, “Do I think I made a mistake dating someone in high school, that I went to school with and I played basketball with? No, I don’t think I made a mistake.” The arrest affidavit describes some of the sexual encounters by the two girls.However, Hunt was re-incarcerated after it was discovered that she sent and received 20,000 text messages to the minor, including nude pictures.Hunt’s ignorance of the law was no longer a defense to her.What about the freshmen and sophomore students—should they know about the possible consequences of their actions on others, and about their incapacity to consent?
