FRANKLIN, OH (FOX19) -

The Franklin church volunteer bus driver accused of sexual abuse against two boy under the age of 10 was federally detained without bond. 

A joint investigation done by the FBI Task Force Officer and Hamilton County Sheriff’s office allege Jory Leedy committed an act of “aggravated sexual abuse” against two elementary school kids. The ages of the victims are nine and 10-years-old.

U.S. Marshals escorted Leedy in shackles for his detention hearing in federal court Wednesday.  

There Leedy was detained on no bond and a preliminary court date was set for April 22 at 1:30 p.m.

Documents obtained by FOX19 NOW show he met the children in 2012, while he was a volunteer bus driver for Target Ministries of Dayton. There, he would drive the kids to church.

Eventually, the documents read he convinced the parents to allow him to take them to Crossroads Church in Cincinnati. He is reportedly a member there.

Court records also show he also convinced the parents to allow the boys to stay at hotels with him on Saturdays in the Cincinnati area for about two years. He allegedly told the parents it would be easier to get them to the church.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s office alleges he took them to see Reds games and Kings Island. They also claim he took them out of state to places like North Carolina, Georgia, New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Indiana and Disney World.

The documents also read that Leedy bought the family a car.

The sexual abuse is alleged to have taken place over two years. The report reads while staying in the hotels, Leedy would "french kiss" the boys.

It also says he got into the shower touching their "private parts,” along with the suspect having oral sex with the boys. The documents claim Leedy made the boys perform on him as well.

He was caught when he got into an argument with the boys' father and Leedy called police.

That's when the cops told the parents that the man they let take their kids on trips alone without them around - was a convicted sex offender. Convicted in 2002. The documents indicate the parents had no idea until it was too late.

The Hamilton County Sheriff’s office wants anyone who thinks their child may have been a victim of his to call them. The number is 513-946-8334 or you may call 513-979-8368.

Investigators said they also want to hear from those who may have information of wrong doing by Leedy.
