The U.S. agreed to drop its extradition request if Mr. Boehnlein was found guilty and sentenced in Cambodia, Lt. Gen. Heisela said.
Sounds fine - IF he gets a jail sentence in Cambodia and doesn't pay his way out.
In which case, you would hope that the US would then renew their demand for extradition.
Yeah, well, it does say that they would drop the extradition request IF he is found guilty and sentenced. So until then, presumably the extradition request is still valid.
Q: Assuming he goes to jail, what happens when his passport expire sand he is in jail?

Do US taxpayers pay for a renewal? Does the US give him a new one? Who pays for that?

Or does Cambodia nail him for illegal overstay? Just asking... curious.

The charges of rape with aggravating circumstances carry a sentence of seven to 15 years in prison if convicted.
One can only hope that it will be closer to 15 years than 7.

US pedophile on trial in Battambang for child rape
26 april 2018
US citizen Robert Boehnlein, who is accused of raping a 5-year-old girl in Battambang, was tried on Wednesday in Battambang Provincial Court, though no verdict was rendered.

Boehnlein, who is a convicted child sex offender in the US, was arrested by immigration police in Battambang town last July at the request of US officials.
The 66-year-old was previously convicted of sodomy and indecent acts with a child in Texas in 2002. According to records from the military court, Boehnlein had sexually abused his daughter for years. He was released from prison in 2011.

At the time of his arrest in Battambang, Boehnlein was wanted in the US for moving without notifying authorities.

According to Cambodian officials, Boehnlein had shuttled between Battambang and Siem Reap for years. His accuser, a 5-year-old girl, told authorities that Boehnlein had raped her several times in 2016 at the house in which she was living.

If convicted, he faces seven to 15 years in prison.

History repeats itself. Boehnlein was convicted of repeatedly sexually abusing his own daughter in the US, and then years later, he set up house in Cambodia and abused his wife's 5 year old daughter.
Boehnlein was sent to pretrial detention in Battambang last week for allegedly raping the daughter of his Cambodian wife on multiple occasions.
He was also working as a school teacher in Mexico when he was arrested and deported to the US.
He was captured at a school in Guadalajara, where he was teaching English, said Maj. Mike Richmond, a spokesman for the Air Force investigation office. Richmond could not say what type of school was involved.
After decades of offending against children, this man needs to be locked away for good. Prey Sar would make a nice retirement home for his final days. Verdict coming soon...

And this could just be a coincidence, but Robert Boehnlein is the second American fugitive who was a sergeant in the US military to be captured in Cambodia and be extradited back to America to face child sex crimes, also against his own children, I believe. Anyone remember Sergeant Michael Edward Harris from back in 2014 who was arrested in Sihanoukville after a national manhunt? Neither one of them were accused of committing crimes in Cambodia, but both have been arrested here.

Sure seems like Cambodia and the United States have an extradition treaty sometimes.

Kind of seems like the FBI puts more effort into going after ex-US military fugitives than regular old citizen fugitives, but I don't have much to base that on.

I think the reason veterans get priority is that its easier. When someone joins the service they have to give up DNA/Fingerprints, photos of tattoos, as well as an extensive background check its a lot easier to find someone with those things than someone who doesn't. Also, the last thing the US gov wants is veterans with combat training and experience getting mixed up in various bullshit overseas, better keep them inside the US where they can be monitored and drugged.

UPDATE: Finally, on 6 June 2018, in Siem Reap court, US pedophile Robert Boehnlein was merely sentenced to 3 years prison for sexual assault on a five-year-old, when the penalty for the original charge of rape would have been seven to 15 years in prison.

American sentenced for child assault
07 June 2018 | 21:40
Battambang Provincial Court sentenced a 66-year old American man to three years in prison for the indecent assault of his girlfriend’s five-year-old daughter, a court official said on Wednesday.

Tieng Sambo, provincial court administrative director, said Judge Le Sokha also fined Robert Boehnlein five million riel, ($1,250). She added that Boehnlein will be deported to the US upon having served his sentence.

She said the judge changed the original charge of rape to “aggravating circumstance of indecent assault”.
“The judge changed the charge based on the investigation. The three-year jail term for sexual assault is lighter than it would have been for rape,” she said.

Khoem Vando, a child protection specialist at Action Pour Les Enfants (APLE), said he was unaware of the reasons behind the judge changing the charge.

According to APLE, Boehnlein had applied to teach at an international English language school in Battambang. But an internet search showed his previous involvement in sexual offences.
