Sex Offender Accused of Abusing Boys Met on Church Bus
April 13, 2016
A convicted sex offender in Warren County has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing boys he met while driving a church bus, officials said.
According to investigators, Jory Leedy of Franklin met two boys in 2012 while volunteering as a driver for Target Ministries in Dayton.
The boys were 7 and 8-years-old at the time. Leedy started buying the boys clothes, games, and took them on trips. Eventually, he spent nearly every weekend with them, according to court documents.
Leedy told the boys’ mother his first name was “Jordan” to avoid his sex offender status showing up in any searches, according to court documents. Investigators said by 2013, he was taking the boys to out-of-state hotels and would sexually abuse them.
The victims’ parents learned of Leedy’s sex offender status in September, when he got into an argument with the boys’ father. During the argument Fairborn police were called.
Leedy was arrested Tuesday morning at his parents’ home in Franklin and then arraigned in federal court. He faces life in prison.
Leedy was convicted of gross sexual imposition in 2002 for sexually abusing an 11-year-old boy. He served 2 years in prison and was required to register as a ‘habitual sex offender’ for 20 years.
