Reward Offered for Ohio Woman Accused of Sex With 14-Year-Old Girl

Ohio Crime Stoppers has issued a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest of a Bexley, Ohio, woman accused of having sex with a 14-year-old girl, reports.

A search warrant revealed the girl was at Becky Jo Tatum’s house earlier this month and said she "had been drinking and had a buzz" prior to the alleged sexual conduct.

Police have issued an arrest warrant for Tatum, 41, whose daughter says she has engaged in sexual activity with a number of her friends, reports.

The teen described Tatum as "flirtatious" and said that Tatum took her by "her left hand [and] guided her upstairs to the master bedroom" where the two had sexual contact, reports.

After the alleged sexual encounter, the girl claims Tatum told her they had done something bad. Police hope the reward will help lead to an arrest.

"It limits the number of places she can hide," Crime Stoppers Detective Gerald Milner told "If she's with family members … perhaps they'll accept that there's something wrong with this behavior."
