FBI: Alleged sex tourist taught in Cambodia

February 23, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
A 59-year-old man suspected of traveling overseas to have sex with a minor is back on U.S. soil and will stand trial in Los Angeles. Michael Dodd was returned to the U.S. from Cambodia on Monday.

An FBI spokeswoman says Dodd was arrested in 2008 and convicted in a Cambodian court of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl.

The FBI says he admitted he paid to have sex with that girl and a number of other children.

Dodd taught English in Cambodia, but told agents he was prohibited from teaching school in most places because of a prior sex offense.
