International Pedophile Ring in Thailand

Sentencing has been postponed in the case of a Canadian man facing up to 50 years in prison for his admitted role in an international pedophile ring he ran out of Thailand. No new date has been set in the case of John Wrenshall, who pleaded guilty to three counts including conspiring to engage in sex tourism and to producing and distributing child pornography. The 63-year-old, originally from Calgary, detailed graphic abuse of boys as young as four years old. Authorities discovered Wrenshall was running a brothel for pedophiles in Thailand after confiscating computers from Union City resident Wayne Corliss.

Mr. Corliss is serving a 20-year sentence after admitting he travelled to Thailand to have sex with at least two boys. Mr. Wrenshall pleaded guilty in May. News reports at the time said he was a former Boy Scout leader and church choir member in Calgary, and was previously convicted of sex-related charges involving young boys. Assistant U.S. Attorney Lee Vartan said Mr. Wrenshall spent time in a Canadian prison and then left Canada and moved to the Thai capital Bangkok. Mr. Vartan said he was there from as early as January 2000 and lived there continuously until he was arrested at London's Heathrow Airport in December 2008.
