An Arizona man was indicted for allegedly traveling to California to have sex with a teen boy, the FBI said.

Michael Killala of Peoria, Ariz., was charged Wednesday with traveling interstate for the purpose of having sex with a minor. He allegedly came to California twice, in December and January, to meet the victim, who he had contacted online.

Authorities said the victim's mother contacted the Ontario Police Department to report the incident. According to a federal complaint, Killala drove the boy to a hotel and purchased vodka for the victim to get him intoxicated.

Investigators say Killala had been in contact with the victim for several months after meeting in an Internet chat program.

According to the FBI, Killala admitted that he knew the victim was a minor and that he had sex with him.

Authorities believe there may be more victims. Anyone with information is urged to contact the FBI at (88) 226-8443.

Killala was scheduled to be arraigned in a Riverside courthouse on Feb. 8. If convicted, he faces a maximum of 30 years in federal prison.
