      Police: Ohio woman posed as boy to have sex with girl

      Patricia Dye

      LEBANON, Ohio (AP) - Police say an Ohio woman pretended to be a 14-year-old boy so she could have a sexual relationship with a teenage girl.

      Authorities say 31-year-old Patricia Dye of Franklin used the alias Matt Abrams as the girl's boyfriend, and that the girl did not know Dye was a woman.

      Dye was arrested June 30, and Springboro police Sgt. Bob Marchiny says she admitted the deception. Her lawyer, William Robert Kaufman, says she has not entered a plea but is assumed not guilty.

      Dye is charged with unlawful sexual conduct with and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. A Warren County judge sent the case to a grand jury Tuesday.

      Dye is being held in the Butler County jail on $100,000 bond.
