Ohio Adoption News UPDATE:New details in Bevercreek adoptee sex arrests

Kenneth  Brandt,.Patrick Rieder, Jason Zwick
I found more information on the story directly below this, on the arrest of Kenneth Brandt charged with prostituting at least one of his adopted sons. The other men involved are Jason Zwick and Patrick Rieder.   It looks like more arrests may follow. Police believe Brandt made his alleged sales connections  through the Internet. The boys are 12, 10, and 9 years of age.   All were adopted  from Texas within the last three years.

According to WOIO-AM Dayton and other news sources:

 Zwick was arrested during a traffic stop by Beavercreek police. He was charged in Troy on one count of felony rape, police said. He is being held without bond and will be arraigned Wednesday morning.

Investigators in Troy said Zwick is accused of meeting Kenneth Brandt of Troy online.

According to police, Brandt allegedly set up the meeting between Zwick and a child between the age of 9 and 12. And, it is not the first time Brandt has allegedly done this, police said.

Officers said another man, Patrick Rieder of Dayton, is also in custody. He also allegedly met Brandt online, too.

Police said Brandt allegedly brought a child to Rieder's home in Dayton, where that child may have been raped.

As for Brandt, he is accused of raping three young boys. He is also accused of promoting prostitution.

The news video below  (after ad) says that the arrests may be the "tip of the iceberg." This report was filed before Zwick's arrest.

I'm trying to find learn more information on the men, but so far not much.  Zwick doesn't show up  yet in Montgomery Country  Clerk of Courts records, and Miami County has no online court records access.

Police in Beavercreek, Dayton, and the FBI are investigating.


  1. Hmmm... Beavercreek. Not surprising.
    Dayton has been a hotbed of underground sex for as long as I can remember.
    It has one of the worlds largest airbases, and flyboys definitely like to get laid.
    (Beavercreek is a suburb of Dayton.)

  2. And also the home of State Rep Jared Martin who is so bad that House Speaker William Batchelder has asked him to resign--and he refuses. Last year Martin was found dead drunk asleep behind the wheel of Batchelder's SUV in the Statehouse parking deck. That's just one of his offenses. http://www.plunderbund.com/2011/11/20/why-state-representative-jarrod-martin-is-officially-toast/
