HAMILTON, OH (FOX19) - A woman who is accused of violating her parole after being convicted of posing as a teenage boy in order to meet teenage girls online was in court on Thursday.

Judge Keith Spaeth set a trial date of Feb. 27 for Patricia Dye, 32.

Dye was brought back to Butler County after authorities tracked her down in California. Police say she failed to properly register her address as required for a sexually oriented offender.

Dye pled guilty in October 2010 to sexual imposition, attempted sexual imposition and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. She was sentenced to 180 days in jail, with credit for time served, and had to register as a Tier 1 sex offender for the next 15 years.

Dye posed as a teenage boy named Matt Abrams in order to meet teenage girls online. She had a relationship with at least one of the victims.

Dye remains in the Butler County Jail on a $25,000 bond. She will be back in court on Feb. 2. Unless a plea deal is reached, her trial will begin on Feb. 27.
