Sentencing Delayed Again For Canadian In Sex Ring Case

View Comments

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) – Sentencing has been delayed again for a Canadian who admitted running an international sex ring that preyed on children as young as 4 years old.

John Wrenshall was to be sentenced Tuesday, but a scheduling problem pushed the sentencing back to next Monday.

The 64-year-old faces up to 50 years in prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to engage in sex tourism and to producing and distributing child pornography.

Wrenshall was arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport in December 2008. In his guilty plea last May, he described graphic abuse of young boys.

After confiscating computers from New Jersey resident Wayne Corliss, authorities discovered Wrenshall was running a brothel for pedophiles in Thailand.

Corliss is serving a 20-year prison sentence.
