The World’s Most Famous Sex Offender™ was released from the Indian River County Jail Dec. 20 and will remain part of Florida’s “supervised population” until Oct. 1, 2016. WPTV reported:
VERO BEACH, Fla. — Kaitlyn Hunt, the Sebastian-area teenager who was arrested after police said she had a sexual relationship with an underage girl, was released from the Indian River County Jail early Friday morning [Dec. 20].
Hunt, 19, was released just after 1 a.m. and was quickly driven away in an SUV with her family.
“I think she’s grown up a lot. She’s had to face a lot of adult issues being very young. She’s learned and she wants to just close a chapter and move on, set some goals and look to the future,” said Hunt’s mother Kelley Smith.
Remember: Prosecutors offered Hunt a plea bargain and no one outside Indian River County ever would have heard of this case if she had accepted that deal. Instead, the “Free Kate” movement decided to turn Kaitlyn Hunt into a gay-rights cause célèbre.
“Free Kate” supporters lied about the ages of the girls and demonized the victim’s family, subjecting them to harassment even while, as prosecutors subsequently learned, Hunt violated her terms of pre-trial release by continuing to communicate with her underage victim, sending the girl obscene photos and videos. And so Kaitlyn Hunt had to serve three months in jail.
Most of us would like to forget about this sordid episode and move on. Unfortunately, some of Kaitlyn Hunt’s most fanatical supporters — including @NicoleBonnet1 and @Periabo – continue cyberstalking and harassing critics of the “Free Kate” movement:
See? If you think Florida law should be enforced, you’re a “disgusting perv” and @NicoleBonnet1 will report you to Child Protective Services for investigation by social workers. There’s going to be lawsuit! She’s making a list! She’s going to get “the feds” after you!
This obsessive behavior is simply online terrorism, intended to smear and intimidate opponents of the movement @NicoleBonnet1 supported. Meanwhile, Rachael Carson Zerbe (whose maniacal persistence I described six weeks ago) now seems to be under the impression that quoting from a “FreeKate” Facebook page is a crime.

Rachael and her friends are the ones who support the criminal in this case, yet they’re convinced their critics are guilty of crimes.
