Church bus driver charged with sexually abusing 2 Ohio boys

CINCINNATI (AP) — A volunteer church bus driver and registered sex offender accused of sexually abusing two boys has been indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of aggravated sexual abuse involving a minor.

Federal authorities say 46-year-old Jory Leedy was indicted Wednesday in Cincinnati and is accused of sexually abusing the 7- and 8-year-old boys for over two years. A message seeking comment was left at his attorney’s office Thursday.

The indictment alleges Leedy met the boys while volunteering for Target Ministries of Dayton and gave their family a fake name. Police discovered his true identity after an altercation between Leedy and the boy’s father.

Authorities allege Leedy had taken them to church, the zoo and baseball games and told them he wouldn’t take them anywhere if they told.
