Officials to widen probe into Ohio man accused of raping and prostituting adopted boy, 10
TROY, Ohio (AP) ' Federal and local law enforcement officials say they're widening the investigation into child sexual exploitation allegations against an adoptive father charged with raping three boys in his care.
The father and two other men remained in jail Thursday on rape charges. Officials say the father hired one of the boys, a 10-year-old, out for sex, prostituting him.
Police say the boy shook when asked about being prostituted to two men. They say the child was fearful of talking because he didn't want to be taken from his home or separated from his new siblings.
Police say they haven't found any records of past criminal charges against the father. He had adopted three children, including a 9-year-old girl, and was in the processing of adopting the fourth who lived with him.
