An Auckland motel and property manager jailed for organising a child sex tour to Thailand is set to be sentenced today for possessing objectionable material.
David Robin Wales, 47, is due to be sentenced in the Manukau District Court after pleading guilty in November, last year to 10 charges.
Wales, who lost his name suppression battle earlier this year, has already been sentenced to three years behind bars in February for organising a child sex tour to Thailand.
Wales was found guilty of the offence in a landmark case in the High Court in Auckland in November.
He was earlier found not guilty of two charges of promoting a child sex tour.
Wales was the first person in New Zealand to face sex tour charges after being caught out by an undercover police operation.
The case was brought after an investigation by the Police Online Child Exploitation Across New Zealand (OCEANZ) team, who uncovered the man's website.
An officer posed as a client wanting to take a trip to Thailand and have sex with underage boys.
The undercover policeman was Wales' one and only client, and he had told the officer he had no moral issue with Western men looking for sex with underage boys in Thailand.
Wales admitted in court earlier this year that he was attracted to post-pubescent teenage boys.
It was revealed that Wales had previous convictions for multiple child sex charges committed in the 1990s.
