A Canadian man faces sex tourism charges in New Jersey


NEWARK, N.J. – A Canadian citizen is facing charges in New Jersey that he helped arrange trips to Thailand for adults who paid to have sex with children.

John Wrenshall has been extradited from London, where he was arrested in December.

The 62-year-old Wrenshall faces three charges related to sex tourism and more than a dozen child pornography counts.

The sex tourism charges carry a maximum sentence of 15 years each. The child pornography counts range from 10 to 15 years.

Some of Wrenshall’s clients have already pleaded guilty, including Wayne Nelson Corliss of Union City. Corliss faces sentencing in September.

Wrenshall is scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Newark Tuesday afternoon. It was not known if he had retained an attorney.
