HOUSTON, Ohio (WDTN) – A Houston man is accused of having sex with three underaged boys.

Gregory Shoup is charged with one count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Investigators say the encounters occurred at Shoup’s residence on Smith Road on three separate occasions.

They say Shoup admitted to the crime.

Deputies say he would find the boys on the internet and lure him to his home with offers of drugs and alcohol.

The case will be presented to a grand jury.  More charges are expected.

This is the second arrest for Shoup. He was arrested in March 2014 on a charge of contributing to the delinquency of a child.  Shoup was accused of taking a group of boys on a trip to Florida in his truck.

An anonymous tip led deputies back to his home for this most recent arrest.
