A federal jury has found a San Jose man who traveled to Manila several times to have sex with an underage girl guilty of sex tourism.
A federal jury on Friday also convicted 56-year-old Michael Lindsay of obstruction charges.
Federal prosecutors say evidence showed that Lindsay frequently traveled from San Francisco to the Philippines capital to have sex with a 13-year-old girl.
They say the investigation began in 2012 when Homeland Security Investigations received a report that Lindsay arranged the meetings with the girl's mother and paid the woman for the sexual encounters.
Prosecutors say Lindsay tried to tamper with a witness and obstruct justice after finding out a federal grand jury had charged him.
He is currently in custody and is scheduled to be sentenced in August in San Francisco.
