WASHINGTON – An American man who traveled between the US and China – molesting young girls in both countries – received three decades in prison for his crimes.

Hector Orjuela Jr., 47, was sentenced today to serve 30 years in prison, followed by a lifetime of supervised release, for molesting children under the age of 12 and producing child pornography, announced Acting Assistant Attorney General Mythili Raman of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, Assistant Director in Charge Valerie Parlave of the FBI’s Washington Field Office and Assistant Secretary of State for Diplomatic Security Gregory B. Starr.

Orjuela pleaded guilty on Oct. 3, 2013, before U.S. District Court Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle in the District of Columbia, to two counts of engaging in and attempting to engage in illicit sexual conduct in a foreign place and one count of producing child pornography.

According to court documents, Orjuela is a U.S. citizen who worked as an English teacher and tutor in Shanghai, China. In July 2012, Orjuela traveled to Maryland and molested a girl under the age of 12 and produced child pornography of the sexual abuse. In August 2012, Orjuela traveled to China and molested one girl and attempted to molest another, both of whom were under the age of 12 and residing in China at that time. Orjuela traveled back to the United States in early November 2012 and then returned to China later that month where he continued to molest the same two young girls.
