Ohio adoptive father due in court in rape case

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- A western Ohio adoptive father is due in court in a second child rape case.

The 40-year-old man pleaded guilty to raping three boys in his care in his hometown of Troy and still faces seven rape-related counts in Montgomery County. His trial there was recently postponed for plea negotiations and a hearing was set Thursday. He's charged with taking an adopted son to another man's home to be raped.

He was sentenced Monday in Miami County to 60 years to life in prison after a guilty plea to six rape counts.

The Associated Press isn't naming him to protect the children's identities. He adopted three children ages 9 to 12, including a girl, and had been in the process of adopting another boy when he was arrested in February.
