TROY, Ohio (AP) -- Two Ohio men who police say had sex with a boy in meetings arranged through an adoptive father have been jailed on rape charges.

Meanwhile, the FBI says it will pursue federal sexual exploitation charges against the three Ohio men. The 39-year-old adoptive father was arrested last week on charges he had sex with the three boys who lived with him in Troy, a western Ohio city of some 25,000 people.

Federal and state investigators and police from three Ohio cities planned to meet Thursday to discuss how to proceed in the widening investigation.

The Associated Press is withholding the man's name to protect the children's identities.

Authorities say the man had adopted three children and was trying to adopt a fourth.
