2010 Springboro sex offender faces new arrest warrant

Updated Jan 02, 2018

Another arrest warrant has been issued for Patricia Dye, a registered sex offender accused of pretending to be a boy to build a sexual relationship with a Springboro girl in 2010.

Dye, now 38, was indicted last month for failing to report her new address, a fourth-degree felony. Last week, she failed to show up for her arraignment in Warren County Common Pleas Court.

Dye, 38, is accused of failing since June 21 to record a change of address as required because she is a registered sex offender.

She is also wanted on a warrant issued by police in Nashville, Tenn., according to the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

The latest Warren County arrest warrant was issued after she failed to appear for her arraignment on Dec. 29.

In 2012, Dye was wanted by Butler County until sheriff’s deputies brought her back from Orick, Calif.

Dye went there when she was released from the Warren County Jail in 2010 after serving six months for contributing to the delinquency of a child, sexual imposition and attempted sexual imposition.

She was arrested after posing as a teenage boy named Matt Abrams, an alias still listed in Warren County Common Pleas Court records.

Dye’s victim told police she thought Dye was a boy when they started dating before she turned 16.

In 2010, Dye was arrested after she and the victim returned to Franklin, several days after the victim ran away from her Springboro home while her mother was recovering from surgery in Dayton.

After her release in 2010, Dye moved to Middletown, but then moved to California without registering her address.

Her last known address was the EconoLodge hotel, 251 Conover Dr., #143, in Franklin, according to the sheriff’s office.
