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 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.

Christopher Paul Neil, the 33-year-old from Vancouver, had posted hundreds of images on the internet showing himself abusing young Asian boys, but his face was hidden by a digital swirl effect.

Computer experts were able to undo the effect and a worldwide search was mounted.

The Interpol agency took the unusual move of going public with its campaign to find him and he was arrested in Thailand in October last year.

He pleaded guilty to the 2003 assault of a 13 year old boy and will spend the next 3 years and 3 months in a Thai prison.

Neil faces more charges in Thailand relating to another young boy. Authorities also said he could later face charges in other countries as well.
