STRUTHERS, Ohio (WKBN) – A woman from Struthers remains jailed on $10,000 bond Tuesday after police said she knowingly allowed two girls, ages 14 and 12, to have sex and smoke marijuana at her house.

Barbara Bigley appeared in Mahoning County Juvenile Court Monday on 10 counts each of child endangering and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Police reports say Bigley knew the girls were having sex with men, who were both 20 years old, and using pot and other drugs at Bigley’s home on East Harvey Street.

The men, Chad Tatarka and Chad Daley, have been charged with having sex with the underage girls.

Bigley told police that she was taking the drugs home from work to throw away, according to a police report. Police said an investigation is underway into Bigley’s employment and whether the drugs were stolen.

She said she purchased condoms for the children because “she didn’t want them to be stupid.”
