NEWARK, NJ (AP) - A federal judge in New Jersey sentenced a Canadian man who admitted running a brothel for pedophiles in Thailand to 25 years in prison.

The judge on Tuesday said it was unlikely that John Wrenshall would overcome his desire to molest children.

Wrenshall told the judge he was ashamed and sorry. The 64-year-old said he didn’t want to die in prison.

Wrenshall pleaded guilty to conspiring to engage in sex tourism and producing and distributing child pornography involving children as young as 4.

He was arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport in December 2008 and pleaded guilty last May.

Authorities discovered Wrenshall after confiscating computers from New Jersey resident Wayne Corliss, one of Wrenshall’s clients. Corliss is serving a 20-year prison sentence.
