A Canadian man faces sentencing for his admitted role in an international pedophile ring he ran out of Thailand.

John Wrenshall could face up to 50 years in prison when he is sentenced Monday in a Newark, New Jersey, federal court.

Wrenshall pleaded guilty to three counts including conspiring to engage in sex tourism and to producing and distributing child pornography.

The 63-year-old detailed graphic abuse of boys as young as four.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Lee Vartan says authorities discovered Wrenshall was running a brothel for pedophiles in Thailand after confiscating computers from Union City, New Jersey, resident Wayne Corliss.

Corliss is serving a 20-year sentence after admitting he traveled to Thailand to have sex with at least two boys.
