Police: Kingsport woman arrested for sexual relationship with boy

Stephanie Hunt

A Kingsport woman's alleged relationship with a boy, age 14, has prompted her arrest on multiple sex charges.

According to the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office, Stephanie Hunt, 36, was indicted earlier this week by a Sullivan County grand jury. She was arrested Friday morning.

Police say they received information last month that Hunt, of Kendrick Creek Road, was engaged in an "inappropriate relationship" with the teen. Results of a subsequent investigation were presented to the grand jury to gain the indictments.

Hunt faces five counts of aggravated statutory rape and two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor by electronic means. The latter stems from her allegedly sending photos of herself to the boy.

As of Friday afternoon she remained held in the Sullivan County jail in Blountville on a $50,000 bond.
