An adoptive father, who is not being named at this time to protect the identity of the children, has been arrested for having sex and allowing other men to have sex with his adopted children. The 39-year-old “father” from Troy, Ohio, was also in the process of adopting a fourth child when all the allegations came to light.
Not only was he an adoptive father, but he was also a junior league basketball coach, who has recently been suspended due to the allegations. He has been charged with three counts of rape and one count of compelling prostitution. The part that makes this story even more disturbing is that he pimped out these children to at least two other men that the authorities are aware of at this time.
Two other men – Jason Zwick, 29 of Beavercreek and Patrick Rieder, 31 of Dayton – have been accused of having sex with one of the children, a 10-year-old-boy.
Patrick Rieder, 31.
Jason Zwick, 29.
The children were adopted in 2011 from Texas via a private adoption agency, and an investigation is ongoing into how the “father” was able to adopt these young kids.
The man was apparently talking to an undercover officer online and arranging for him to have sex with the 10-year-old boy. The same detective that was arranging that also talked to two other men who claimed to have already slept with the boy. Sadly, the young boys verified that this was in fact happening.
