New details unveiled about Fremont woman, formerly of Tiffin, accused of sexually abusing autistic boy




TIFFIN, OH — A Fremont woman who previously lived in Tiffin is being accused of sex-related crimes involving a boy with autism, according to police.

Tabitha P. Zahn, 27, was indicted by a Seneca County grand jury Tuesday on four counts of third-degree felony sexual battery, and three counts of fourth-degree felony unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, according to court records.

The sexual conduct lasted from May 26, 2017, to February 2018, and Zahn knew the boy was 13 to 15 years old, according to her indictment.

Zahn was an employee/volunteer of the school where the boy attended, according to court records. Zahn was indicted May 8 and served with charges on Monday.

Zahn, who has since changed her name on her Facebook profile, is previously seen with profile pictures containing frames related to “autism support.”

Seneca County Common Pleas Court Judge Steve Shuff set her bond at $300,000 Tuesday and ordered her not to have any contact with the alleged victim.
