A former Palos Verdes resident found guilty of traveling to Cambodia to sexually exploit children was sentenced to 70 years in federal prison Monday. 
Ronald Gerard Boyajian was convicted in March on federal counts of international travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct with minors, engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a minor in foreign places, and commission of a felony offense involving a minor while required to register as a sex offender.
Boyajian, 55, had been convicted of 22 counts of illegal sex with a minor and oral sex with a minor stemming from a 1995 California case.

After he was released from parole, he traveled to Cambodia 35 times in a nine-year period to sexually abuse young, impoverished children there.
