LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A Franklin, Ohio woman is behind bars after police say she posed as a boy in order to have sexual contact with a teenage girl.

Patricia Dye, 31, is charged with one count of corruption of a minor, one count of importuning and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Prosecutors say Dye cut her hair, used the alias "Matt Abrams" and said she was 14 years old in order to be with the 16-year-old girl.

The victim met Dye at a hotel in June, and when she found out Dye was really a woman, she ran away.

Dye was arrested June 30 by Springboro Police and is being held in the Butler County Jail on a $100,000 bond. The case was sent to a grand jury on Tuesday.
