Seated Thursday on the bed in the family’s hotel room, Dye’s mother said the alleged victim slept on a blanket next to the bed in the room, rather than with her daughter in a van as the victim’s friends and family claimed.
“Patricia and I slept on the bed,” Dorothy Dye said. “Nothing ever happened.”
Ralph Dye said he believed his daughter was innocent of the charges.
Both parents said Dye had fallen in with the wrong crowd.
Dye’s mother said she’d taken calls from school officials in Lebanon in the 1990s about her daughter pretending to be a boy.
“She always wears slacks. There’s nothing wrong with that,” the mother said.
On Thursday, Dye had been transferred to the Butler County Jail pending consideration of her case by a Warren County grand jury.
Warren County jail officials said the transfer was probably related to crowding at their facility.
