Christopher Neil, Pedophile, Sentenced To Six More Years
Christopher Neil, the subject of an Interpol search, was sentenced to a further six years in prison. He has been convicted of abusing two Thai boys.
Christopher Neil, the Maple Ridge, B.C., man who gained international notoriety in 2007 as one of the world's most wanted pedophiles has been sentenced to six more years in a Thai prison for abusing a second little boy.
Neil made international headlines in the fall of 2007 after Interpol used high tech software to determine his identity in child porn photos. His face had been digitally altered in the photos, showing a swirl of colours. Police managed to "unswirl" the images, allowing them to see Neil's face.
They then gave the images to media outlets around the world in one of the most publicized pedophile manhunts in history. Neil was caught after flying to Thailand from South Korea, where he was a teacher.
