3 men arrested in Cambodia on sex tourism charges

By AMY TAXIN, Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES – Three men expelled from Cambodia will face federal charges as part of an initiative targeting Americans who travel there to have sex with children.

Authorities said Ronald Boyajian, Erik Peeters and Jack Sporich would arrive in Los Angeles later Monday after being expelled from Cambodia where they were each arrested in February. Seperate criminal complaints have been filed against the men.

At a news conference Monday, authorities said the U.S. citizens are the first to be charged under "Operation Twisted Traveler," which seeks to prosecute people who go to Cambodia for so-called child sex tourism.

All three men have been previously convicted of sex offenses in the United States.
