CINCINNATI (AP) — A man who sexually abused two young boys he met while serving as a volunteer bus driver for a church has been sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Federal prosecutors say 51-year-old Jory Leedy, of Franklin, Ohio, had pleaded guilty in June 2019 on the day his trial was due to start. Authorities say he’s a registered sex offender who had provided the victims’ parents with a false name.

Leedy met the boys when they were around 7 and 8 years old. The children and their mother rode the bus to the church on Sundays, and Leedy soon ingratiated himself into the family.
