VERO BEACH, Fla. (WFTV) -- Prosecutors have withdrawn a plea deal offered to a Florida teen accused of having sex with her underage girlfriend.

The state attorney's office reports that it pulled 19-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt's deal Monday, following allegations last week that she had violated her pretrial conditions and contacted the girl identified as the victim in her case.

The deal would have spared Hunt jail time and registration as a sex offender but added a felony count to her charges.

An emergency hearing has been set for Tuesday after Hunt was accused of violating a pretrial order, banning contact with her teenage victim.

Prosecutors said Kaitlyn Hunt violated court orders by sending 20,000 text messages to the victim.

The state attorney's office in Indian River County filed a motion, saying Hunt has had daily contact with her girlfriend, including the texts and Facebook messages since March.

Prosecutors also said Hunt sent the girl 25 lewd photos.

Hunt was charged in February with two counts of lewd and lascivious battery and later released on $5,000 bail.

Authorities said Hunt was 18 when she had sex with her then-14-year-old girlfriend. The two met at Sebastian River High School in 2012.

Hunt has argued the sex was consensual, but Florida law considers it a felony offense to have sex with a person under the age of 16.

Gays don't commit crimes. Like the 43 year old Congressman who had sex with 17 year old boy no charges. Yet few years ago a man met a girl in night club took her home (was 21 and up nightclub). Ended up being charged with rape and became sex offender because she had fake ID. The judge response he was guilty because he didn't card her before sex. An ID good enough that bouncer lets her in yet the club took no responsibility for the act nor did the girl's parents. Yet this girl knows the law and says I am special gay people can have sex with who they want when they want. The prosecutor in this case should be removed btw. How many 18 year old to 21 year old men are sexual predators because they had consensual sex with 16 to 17 year old girls? She had sex with her 14 and 15 year old girlfriend and thinks gays should be allowed that.
