The father of accused sex offender Kaitlyn Hunt is a disgraced ex-cop, who lost his police job ten years ago:
May 21, 2004 — WEST MELBOURNE, Fla. – A police officer involved in a nightclub quarrel resigned after an internal affairs review showed he pressured a victim not to file a battery charge, officials said Thursday.
Sgt. Steve Hunt, who joined the West Melbourne Police Department in 1996, resigned Tuesday after the internal investigation on official misconduct allegations was completed.
Reports show Hunt lied to his supervisors about contacting a man he had gotten into an argument with on Oct. 11 .
The incident happened at the 702 Nightclub in downtown Melbourne, said Sgt. Sean Riordan, spokesman for the Melbourne Police Department.
“It was a disturbance where one person pushed another,” Riordan said. No arrests were made, but West Melbourne investigators found Hunt placed multiple calls to the other man and convinced him not to pursue a battery charge, reports show.
Intimidating the victim of a crime? A few years after this disgrace, Kaitlyn’s parents divorced, and you can read what an acquaintance says about the home life Kaitlyn’s mother provided for her kids.
