A Scioto County woman has been charged with having unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. The Scioto County Sheriff’s Office has arrested Theresa L Dunbarr age 21 of Scioto Furnace and charged her with one count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. Dunbarr appeared in Portsmouth Municipal Court on Tuesday and is being held on a $1,000 bond.

Sheriff Marty V. Donini told the Daily Times his office received a call on Nov. 20, 2015 from a parent stating that an adult female had picked his juvenile daughter up from school without his permission and he believed that this adult is having sexual activity with his daughter.

Deputies responded and took a report that was forwarded to a detective for an investigation. During the investigation detectives were able to determine that the adult female started dating the female juvenile in February of 2015 and that they started a sexual relationship in August of 2015 when the victim was age 14.

Detectives responded to the suspect’s home in Scioto Furnace on Nov. 30, 2015 and left a message with a family member for her to contact the office. The suspect responded to the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office and was arrested without incident.

Donini said more charges will be presented to the Scioto County grand jury at a later date.

Donini said anyone with any information concerning that case is being requested to contact Detective Jodi Conkel at the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office at 740- 351-1091. He said all calls will remain anonymous.
