NEWARK, N.J. (AP) – The sentencing of a Canadian who admitted running an international child sex ring that preyed on children as young as 4-years-old has been postponed.

John Wrenshall faces up to 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to three counts including conspiring to engage in sex tourism and to producing and distributing child pornography. Sentencing was rescheduled for next Tuesday.

During his plea, Wrenshall described graphic abuse of young boys. He was arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport in December 2008 while traveling, and was extradited to New Jersey in July 2009.

Authorities discovered Wrenshall was running a brothel for pedophiles in Thailand after confiscating computers from Union City resident Wayne Corliss.

Corliss is serving a 20-year prison sentence.
