Convicted paedophile to face trial in US

A UNITED States man accused of child sex crimes in Cambodia will face trial next month at a US federal court in Los Angeles after being transferred to the US in February. The Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday that Michael James Dodd, 59, faced up to 30 years in prison on charges of having sex with a 14-year-old girl in Phnom Penh. Laura Eimiller, a spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was quoted as saying that Dodd was arrested and flown to the US as part of a joint operation between US and Cambodian authorities.
