FBI: Ohio rape suspect once foster group president

Published:

TROY, Ohio (AP) -- The FBI says it has enough evidence to pursue federal sexual exploitation charges against three Ohio men accused of raping the adopted children of one of the men.

The FBI also says the accused 39-year-old adoptive father also once served as president of the Foster Parent Association for Miami County in southwest Ohio, although he was not in that position when he was arrested.

The Dayton Daily News reports Thursday (http://bit.ly/wQyAC6 ) that authorities are also investigating the father's history as a foster parent, including allegations he brought children from Texas to Ohio as supposed foster children.

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

The newspaper says two other men have been arrested on charges of sexually assaulting one of the father's sons.
