OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO) -A federal grand jury indicted a local author known for books about bondage with several charges related to kidnapping a teenage girl for sex.

According to the indictment, 59-year-old Charles Michael Segaloff went to Greenwich, New York, between Dec. 7 and Dec. 15, 2015 to pick up a 17-year-old girl for sex. Authorities say Segaloff—who also goes by the names of Michael Makai, Mike Sage, Daddy, Papa and Master—wanted to girl to form a polyamorous family, “the House Makai.”

He was indicted and charged with traveling with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a juvenile, kidnapping, sex trafficking and enticement of a juvenile.

Segaloff was previously charged by complaint in a federal court in Oklahoma City and is currently being held at the Logan County Jail.

If convicted, he could face up to life in prison, a $250,000 fine and could be required to register as a sex offender for life.

Segaloff was arrested at his home in December after police were able to ping the girl's cell phone location at his house. New York State Police say Segaloff traveled to New York after the teen contacted him on Facebook about one of his books. 

The case is the result of an investigation by the FBI, Lawton Police Department and the New York State Police.
