A Thai court has sentenced a Canadian man to 39 months in prison for abducting and molesting a 14-year-old boy and posting pornographic pictures on the internet.
Christopher Neil, who was tracked down by police after his digitally disguised features were revealed from pictures on the internet, refused to comment after the verdict was handed down on Friday.
Feros Mia, Neil's translator, told reporters he had shown no emotion in court and that he was "fine with the verdict".
Neil had pleaded guilty to abusing the 14-year-old boy.
The criminal court in Bangkok, the Thai capital, had handed down a sentence of six years and six months, but the judge halved the sentence, citing Neil's guilty plea.
Neil is set to face another trial in October on a charge of molesting the boy's younger brother, who was nine at the time of the alleged offence.
Neil was arrested in Thailand in October 2007 after computer experts in Germany reconstructed a series of "swirled" internet images and Interpol issued a worldwide public appeal to identify him.
Following the Interpol appeal, Neil fled to Thailand from South Korea, where he had been teaching, but was arrested 11 days later by Thai police.
