25 Years in Prison Plus Lifetime Probation for Sexual Predator

25 Years in Prison Plus Lifetime Probation for Sexual Predator

Lawrence Hunt, 46, has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for repeatedly sexually abusing a child. Hunt abused the child over an eight-year period, beginning when the child was just 4 years old.

January of last year, Citrus County Sheriff’s Office deputies received a report about claims made by the victim. They then organized a controlled call between the victim and Hunt where Hunt admitted to sexually abusing the victim. Later, during a recording interview with deputies, Hunt again admitted to sexually abusing the child. Hunt was arrested the same day.

Hunt pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted sexual battery on a child less than 12, one count of sexual battery on a child less than 18, and one count of lewd and lascivious molestation on a child less than 12. He was sentenced to 25 years in the Department of Corrections as a minimum mandatory, which means he will serve the term day-for-day, without gain time. Once Hunt is released, he will serve lifetime Sex Predator probation.

Assistant State Attorney Debra Munchel prosecuted the case.
