Oregon Man Charged with Sexually Abusing a Child in Cambodia

A missionary worker from Coos Bay, Oregon was released from a Cambodian prison and returned to the United States this week to be prosecuted for sexually abusing an underage boy while overseas.

Daniel Stephen Johnson, 36, is scheduled to be arraigned next Monday in U.S. District Court in Eugene on a charge of engaging in illicit sexual conduct in a foreign place.

Johnson was lodged in the Lane County Jail on Tuesday after authorities in Cambodia reportedly handed him over to a team of FBI agents.

Johnson on Monday completed a one-year prison sentence in Cambodia for sexually abusing five underage boys who were in his care at an orphanage he had operated there, according to the anti-pedophile group Action pour les Enfants, which is based in Cambodia.

The group said in a news release that Johnson had operated the unlicensed orphanage for about ten years.

The news release states that although the group is disappointed with Johnson’s “light sentence in Cambodia,” the government’s decision to deport Johnson “is a clear signal and helps serve as deterrent for other criminals that Cambodia will not allow such crimes, and that perpetrators will not only serve time in prison, but also be deported afterwards.”

A federal grand jury in Eugene issued an indictment against Johnson on Dec. 10. The charging document, unsealed Wednesday, alleges that Johnson sexually abused an underage boy between November 2005 and October 2006.

FBI spokeswoman Jennifer Adams said she could not comment on the case, which she said involves an ongoing investigation.

Johnson had previously been accused of sexually abusing three children in his sister’s care.

According to a 2003 article in the Yamhill Valley News-Register, Lincoln County prosecutors dismissed sex-abuse and sodomy charges in the case after investigators began to doubt the alleged victims’ statements.

Perhaps it is time to re-visit that 2003 case.
