LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A woman who posed as a teenage boy in order to meet teenage girls was sentenced to jail Wednesday morning in Warren County court.

The trial for Patricia Dye, 31, of Franklin, was supposed to begin Wednesday, but instead, Dye pled guilty to sexual imposition, attempted sexual imposition and contributing to the delinquency of a minor

"She's been doing it her entire life and she's going to continue to keep on doing it," said the victim's mother, Laura McCandless.

She will spend 180 days behind bars and was ordered to have no contact with the victims. She will also have to register as a Tier I Sex Offender and will be placed on probation when she is released from jail. She's also getting credit for time served which means she could be out by the end of December.

"She feels sorry about it, that's why we came in here and pled guilty, she understands the impact," said Dye's attorney, Rob Kaufman.

The victim's family was hoping for the maximum sentence; the believe Dye will do it again, but they're not sticking around to find out.

"I cannot believe that they would let her go back to a town where she saw my child in the first place, and I'm going home, and I'm packing up my children and I'm leaving, I am moving out of this town, and finding a safer place for my kids," McCandless said.

Dye created an online profile as a 14-year-old boy named Matt Abrams. Investigators say she fooled and dated at least two teenage girls - one from Springboro and the other from Middletown. 

Dye's father was in court for this morning's hearing -- he says the ordeal has been trying for he and his wife.

" I still love her, I know I do," Dye said.

Dye will also have to undergo a mental health evaluation and counseling.
