Former bus driver pleads guilty to child sex abuse
CINCINNATI (AP) — Federal authorities say a man who met two boys he sexually abused through his volunteer work as a church bus driver has pleaded guilty to a count of sexually abusing a minor under age 12.
Forty-nine-year-old Jory Leedy of Franklin pleaded guilty Monday in Cincinnati. U.S. District Judge Timothy Black will sentence him later.
Authorities said Leedy drove the boys and their mother to a Dayton ministry. They said he started visiting them, bought things for the boys and their family, and took the boys on trips including to Disney World.
Police said Leedy used a fake name. After he had an altercation with the boys’ father, police told the parents he was a registered sex offender.
His attorney didn’t respond immediately Monday to a request for comment.
