    Cambodia : NY doctor arrested on charge of having sex with 14-year-old

    NY doctor who went to Cambodia to volunteer arrested on charge of having sex with 14-year-old
    April 24, 2011

    SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) A New York doctor who traveled to Cambodia to volunteer at a children's hospital is being held in a Phnom Penh (puh-NAHM' pehn) prison on a charge he had sex with a 14-year-old boy.

    The Post-Standard reports Sunday that Dr. James D'Agostino was arrested Feb. 16 and charged in the Phnom Penh municipal court with purchasing child prostitution.

    A judge says the 56-year-old D'Agostino could be held up to six months while the court reviews the case before deciding if it goes to trial.

    If convicted, D'Agostino could face seven to 15 years in prison under Cambodian law.

    Pek Vannak, a lawyer representing D'Agostino, says the doctor denies the charges.

    D'Agostino is a pediatric emergency doctor at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse. He went to Cambodia in January 2009.

    Here we go again...

    Volunteered to work at a childrens hospital that could be handy for a paedophile!

    Still as he's from New York and NOT a Brit it's got to be a shake down just like the 90 year old Aussie!

    Cambodia jails US doctor for sex with teenager
    Nov 4, 2011

    PHNOM PENH (AFP) - A Cambodian court on Friday sentenced a middle-aged American doctor to four years in prison for paying for sex with a 15-year-old boy.

    James D'Agostino, from New York, was arrested in the capital Phnom Penh in February and charged with purchasing child prostitution.

    Judges at Phnom Penh Municipal Court ordered the 56-year-old, who travelled to Cambodia two years ago to volunteer at a children's hospital, to be deported after serving his jail term.

    'I don't agree with it. I am innocent,' he told AFP after the verdict was announced.

    I hate these stories and these guys - but I must admit I'm more than a bit suspicious about some of these charges. There could be an industry in shaking down Westerners who seem to have considerable 'means' to pay related extortion. So rather than wait for a real Pedo to come along, they find someone in a vulnerable position - working with kids - and then launch a sting (set up). There wouldn't even need to be any sex involved. Just a kid and parents willing to take part in the sting. Then the extortion begins
    My mind is not for rent to any God or Government, There's no hope for your discontent - the changes are permanent!

    His statement is as credible as a Cambodian Court.

    ^
    How can you be so certain he is guilty? Because a Cambo court says he is? They're deeply corrupt. Didn't the farang head of the joint Cambodian-UN Court Tribunal resign for that very reason (Khmer Rouge trials)?

    The Cambodian Court sentenced the DR. That does not mean He is guilty.

    Remember the vids on here of a doco in Cambo about a sting operation. The police were offering 14 years olds for sex.

    As scummy as these creatures are, I wonder how much it would cost to get witnesses and police to have a rock solid case against someone you don't like. A few thousand US$?

    Well, he is Guilty, because the Court found him Guilty. So, by definition - he is.

    Better to say

    'The Cambodian Court convicted the Dr. That does not mean he committed the offence.'

    I knew a Canuk that was working a legitimate job in Manila.
    He worked with Kids as an Athletic Instructor.
    His problem began when He took some street Kids into His room for showers and food. Dirty smelly bug infested street kids with their parents approval. The parents refused to go into His room with the Kids, it's better if we wait outside.
    Wow, then the parents claimed the canuk did sex acts with the Kids.
    It was total BS and the man had to pay the Family, Police, and Immigration.

    He lived in a room and had street kids over to shower? In a place like Manila. Doesn't sound like the brightest of chaps tbh. Even reading your post is a bit creepy.

    I thought street kids were street kids cos they had been abandoned by their parents - or were these normal kids who preferred to live on the streets, of course with their parents' approval?
