EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — A missionary worker from Oregon has been returned to the United States to be prosecuted on an accusation that he molested a boy while in Cambodia.

Daniel Johnson is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in U.S. District Court in Eugene.

The Register-Guard newspaper reports the 36-year-old man from Coos Bay was lodged in a Eugene jail this week after authorities in Cambodia handed him over to FBI agents.

An anti-pedophile group and several media reports say Johnson recently completed a one-year prison sentence in Cambodia for sexually abusing boys who were in his care at an orphanage.

A federal grand jury in Eugene voted to indict Johnson on Dec. 10.

    Child abuse is rampant over there. Widely publicized that Dr’s, Lawyers, Businessmen, travel there specifically for immoral purposes. Thailand is another country that the sick and twisted flock to. Numerous documentaries on this. There is a hot hell waiting for these ped’s.
