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

Kaitlyn Hunt pleaded no contest on Thursday to battery, interference with child custody and contributing to the dependency of a child.

The 19-year-old Hunt was charged in February with having sex with a 14-year-old female schoolmate. Hunt was 18 at the time. A previous plea deal was withdrawn in August following allegations that Hunt exchanged thousands of texts with the girl and sent her nude photos. A judge revoked her bond, sending her to jail. Prosecutors added a charge of transmitting material harmful to a minor.

Under the terms of Thursday's deal, Hunt will stay in jail until mid-December.
