Carl Sara, 63, of Springfield, Virginia, was indicted by a federal grand jury Thursday.

According to the indictment, beginning in approximately 2013, Sara used the internet to communicate with people in the Philippines to obtain child pornography. The indictment also alleges that he traveled to the Philippines on one occasion to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.

Sara faces one count each of attempted sex trafficking of children, attempted enticement of a minor to engage in sex, traveling with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct with minors, and transportation and possession of child pornography.

It wasn’t immediately clear if Sara had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
