Ohio officials are investigating a private adoption agency that helped place children with a man now accused of raping three boys in his care.
The Ohio Department of Job and Family Services tell the Associated Press on Friday that it's opened an investigation into ACTION Inc.
The investigation follows the arrest last week of a 39-year-old Troy man charged with three counts of rape and one count of compelling prostitution in Miami County. He also faces child rape charges in Montgomery County. Police accuse him of hiring out a 10-year-old boy for sex with other men.

Texas authorities didn't release any other details on the children but said the adoption was handled through ACTION Inc. adoptions agency of Dayton. A Texas spokesman said Thursday that it appeared that proper procedures had been followed, including background checks on the adoptive father. Troy police say they don't know of any past criminal activity by him.
