Kaitlyn Hunt, the gay Florida teenager accused of having sex with an underage classmate, was arrested again today, WFTV reported.

In February, Hunt, 19, was expelled from school and charged with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery for allegedly having sex with her then-14-year-old girlfriend. Hunt was 18 years old at the time.

Although Hunt claims the sex was consensual, the state of Florida considers intercourse with a person under 16 to be a felony.

Under the conditions of a pretrial court order, Hunt was forbidden from contacting the victim. Then, on Aug. 9, she was offered a plea deal to lesser, nonsexual charges.

According to The Associated Press, the state attorney's office withdrew that offer on Monday following allegations that Hunt repeatedly met with the victim and sent sexually explicit photos via the Internet.

Prosecutors also said that Hunt's mother, Kelley Hunt Smith, has been communicating with the victim, and urging her to delete texts exchanged with Kaitlyn, TCPalm.com reported.

Hunt will return to court on Tuesday to learn if the judge plans to revoke her bail and send her back to jail. She also faces the possibility of more criminal charges.
