Woman who posed as teen boy gets out of jail, says she's sorry

LEBANON, OH (FOX19) - A 31-year-old Franklin woman who posed as a teenage boy in order to meet teenage girls is now out of jail.

Patricia Dye said she was sorry for what she did after she was released from the Warren County Jail on Tuesday.

"I am sorry for everything that had happened," she said. "I'd just like to move on from this, try to get some help.

"It won't happen again," she added.

Dye pled guilty in October to sexual imposition, attempted sexual imposition and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She was sentenced to 180 days in jail, but got credit for time served.

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. Only one of the victims filed charges.

Right after she was released Tuesday morning, Dye registered as a Tier 1 sex offender.  She will need to continue to register for 15 years. She also must undergo mental evaluations and stay away from the victim.

The mother of the Springboro victim told FOX19 after Dye's sentencing in October that she didn't feel 180 days was long enough. She felt that Dye would do it again, and was planning to move away from Springboro to "find a safer place for my kids."
