Trial date set for woman accused of posing as boy

LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A trial date has been set for a woman accused of posing as a teenage boy so she could meet girls.

Patricia Dye's attorneys met behind closed doors Monday with Warren County prosecutors, but could not work out a plea deal.

Dye is charged with sexual imposition, attempted sexual imposition and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

A judge set a trial date for Oct. 6.

Dye, 31, is accused of pretending to be a 14-year-old boy and dated at least two teenage girls.

Dye's attorney says an offer is on the table to dismiss one of the charges if she pleads guilty to two of the charges.

"We have a trial date coming up in 10 days. We'll rather have the trial in 10 days or a plea agreement will be reached before then," said Rob Kaufman, Dye's attorney.

"I would be very upset if they drop any of the charges because these are felony charges they are solely concentrating on what happened after my daughter turned 16, not what happened to my daughter when she was 15. That is when the felony charges should be sticking," said Laura McCandless, the mother of one of Dye's alleged victims. "Misdemeanors they need to throw the book at her and throw away the key."

McCandless said her daughter is too embarrassed to go back to school and has started home schooling.
