The 15-year-old Massachusetts girl who allegedly was kidnapped and taken to Long Island where she was sexually assaulted by three adults for a week said that while she was tired from her ordeal she was OK, Newsday reported Thursday.

"I'm fine, I'm fine," the girl said in a telephone interview Wednesday night. "It's been OK. I'm tired."

Beth Loschin, 46, of Farmingdale, and James Warren, 41, of Hampton Bays, were charged with raping, sodomizing and sexually abusing the Wrentham, Mass., girl, who they met in an Internet chat room months ago.

Loschin was released on $165,000 bail without restrictions and avoided the kidnapping charge even though she was allegedly driving when she and Warren on Aug. 3 abducted the teen-age girl from a mall parking lot near Boston, leading some to believe she agreed to a plea bargain, the Daily News and the New York Post reported Thursday.

Warren and a third person, Michael Montez, 35, of Queens, were held without bail.

Attorney Michael Siff, who represents Montez, says the fact that Loschin is not charged with kidnapping indicates she might have cut a deal. Montez, who allegedly "borrowed" the girl for two days, also was charged with kidnapping, rape, sodomy, sexual assault.

Loschin's lawyer, Mike Fishman, refused to comment on the plea bargain as they left the Nassau County Court with his client's mother.

"My client will be found innocent at the appropriate times," he told the News.

The defendants, who crossed state lines, will be tried in federal court after the girl detailed her nightmarish week for investigators, Newsday said.

The girl, who is with her mother at an undisclosed location in Nassau County for questioning, said that she never thought she was in danger when Loschin and Warren picked her up.

"I'm hurt. I (mistakenly) thought they were nice," the girl told Newsday.
