A Florida high school student was expelled and arrested after she continued to carry on a same-sex relationship with a minor student after she turned 18.
Kaitlyn Hunt was arrested in February at the behest of her 15-year-old girlfriend’s parents and charged with two felony counts of lewd and lascivious battery of a child 12 to 16 years old.
A judge ruled that Hunt could still go to her Sebastian, Fla., school if she did not have contact with the 15-year-old. Unhappy with that decision, the girlfriend’s parents also made an appeal to the school board, and Hunt was then expelled from Sebastian River High School just weeks before her graduation.
Her mother, Kelley Hunt Smith, claims State Attorney Brian Workman offered her daughter a plea deal that she has until Friday to accept or face trial. The plea deal includes “two years house arrest and one year probation.”
Her father, Steven R. Hunt, said the school disapproved of the relationship from the beginning. Hunt reportedly had good grades and participated in cheerleading, chorus and basketball. She was voted “most school spirited.” But when she began dating another girl from the basketball team, her coach dropped her citing that the relationship would cause “drama.”
Hunt’s family started a petition on Change.org asking people to “Stop the prosecution of 18 year old girl in a same-sex relationship” and calling it a “cruel waste of our taxes.” The petition, addressed to the Indian River County State Attorney’s Office, has more than 28,500 signatures so far.
“They are out to destroy my daughter, because they feel like she ‘made’ their daughter gay,” Smith said. “They see being gay as wrong and they blame my daughter. Of course, I see it 100 percent differently. I don’t see or label these girls as gay. They are teenagers in high school experimenting with their sexuality – with mutual consent. And even if their daughter is gay, who cares? She is still their daughter.”
Some other information: the 15 year old’s mother initially said that the relationship was fine as long as it was consensual. But the minute Kaitlyn turned 18, she was filing charges against her. If found guilty, she faces jail time or house arrest and will be labeled as sex offender for the rest of her life.
This is JASON FYLES and he goes to my university (Newcastle University, North East of England) He is 19 years old, 5’8, ginger hair and slim. He was last seen in the Sandyford area at 2:45am on Thursday morning and has not been seen since. He was wearing a blue shirt, grey cardigan, beige chinos and brown ankle boots. Everyone in uni is so worried about him along with his family and friends. We are coming together as a university to appeal for his safe return. It is thought that he lost his friends on the night out and tried to make his way back by himself. Please, I am begging for you to REBLOG THIS, even if you don’t live in Newcastle, or England. Every REBLOG means that someone else will see his face, they will know who we are looking for, and your followers could be the one to know his whereabouts. Stay safe Jason, we’re looking for you.
THIS WILL NOT RUIN YOUR BLOG!
PLEASE. Nobody reblogged my own post on this which I posted an hour or so ago so I’m wondering if nobody will now. This guy is my friend. If I have ever sent you a nice ask or reblogged something of yours and it made you happy for a second (or even if I haven’t; this is about helping him, not doing me a favour) for God’s sake just help now, help to find my friend Jason. You want me to make him human to you?
- Once we all grew beans in pots as part of a Biology experiment- the experiment failed miserably and made the whole lab stink, but his was the only bean that grew and he was actually pretty proud about it
- He learned to knit as part of a school project where he had to learn a creative skill, and when a couple of people teased him about it he said “gender is a social construct” and carried on knitting like a badass
- He loves the scene in The Great Gatsby where Gatsby throws all his silk shirts around and he and I used to giggle over it together
- Once I asked him if he had a string of tinsel I could use in a photoshoot and he brought me a big cardboard box full of tinsel and fairy lights because he’s a helpful and lovely guy
He’s HUMAN and he needs our HELP and just PLEASE PLEASE FUCKING REBLOG THIS??? He’s been missing for four days now- when he went missing he would have been wearing his contact lenses and he won’t have had his (very thick) glasses with him so by now he’ll have had to take his contacts out and throw them away and he won’t be able to see well and oh God just please signal boost this

Every single person needs to reblog this. No, it will not ruin your blog, it will make it a million times better.
So much respect. And sadness. He’s trying so hard to stay strong.
i’m tearing :/
No, no, this is horrible. You see, the flag will go to the husband or wife of the deceased soldier as next of kin. This flag is going to the son.
Both of his parents are gone.
I need some help.
If you know me very well then you know I’m not really a person who’s great about asking when she needs something, so please know that I wouldn’t do this if it wasn’t serious. If you do know me, then you might also know a bit about my relationship with my father. My father is an abusive and mentally ill person, who had been causing my family constant stress, both financially, legally and emotionally, for over a decade, since my mother divorced him.
Today I found out that if my family doesn’t some how come up with $20,000 by the end of May, we’re going to lose our house because of him. The court has declared that he has a legal right to the house, despite the fact that is my mother who has been paying mortgage payments on it for over 10 years.
This may not seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but the repercussions would be enormous on my family. Because of the nasty divorce, my mother’s credit is too bad to buy another house or get a loan to help pay the fee. My brother Mark is going to college this fall, and she’ll have to support him through that (not to mention the fact he’ll have to leave knowing the home he’s lived in since he was four is no longer his). I will have to move home to support my family, giving up year of experience and credit I have at my current restaurant of employment. My youngest sister who already faces bullying at school, and my youngest brother who is only 7, will be homeless without a roof over their heads. That’s him, in the picture, when he was a little younger, playing in our backyard.
If anyone can spare anything to help my family, I would be incredibly grateful. I can’t offer much in return - I can’t draw or create clothes or much of anything. All I can really do is ask for whatever you can spare, or a signal post if you can’t spare anything.

Thank you all for whatever you can do.
Donate anything you can and signal boost, guys. This is important.
Don’t you dare die on me, Vakarian
So I worked on this ALL day long instead of doing my mountains of homework, just so that I could post it for Shakarian Sunday!
My headcanon of Shepard’s reaction to seeing Garrus go down.
Here. Have some feels.
I’m not sure if it’s actually done but I’m going to post it here anyway so that I’ll just leave it alone and actually do my homework.
