A 65-year-old Delaware man faces federal charges for allegedly flying to Germany for sex with a teenager. U.S. Attorney Colm Connolly says previously convicted sex offender Thomas Pendleton is now accused of having sex with the teen in Germany in November 2005.

The prosecutor says Pendleton was given a two-and-a half-year prison term by a German court, but was deported back to the United States after serving a year and a half.

Pendleton faces up to 30 years in the United States.
