APNewsBreak: Ohio investigates agency that placed kids with dad accused of raping boys in care
CINCINNATI (AP) ' Ohio officials are investigating a private adoption agency that helped place children with a man now accused of raping three boys in his care.
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services tell the Associated Press on Friday that it's opened an investigation into ACTION Inc.
The investigation follows the arrest last week of a 39-year-old Troy man charged with three counts of rape and one count of compelling prostitution in Miami County. He also faces child rape charges in Montgomery County. Police accuse him of hiring out a 10-year-old boy for sex with other men.

If the state finds wrongdoing, it could revoke the agency's license. Messages for comment were left at ACTION's office in Dayton.
