Pedophilia conviction

Alexander Moritz Watrin was convicted at Sihanoukville Municipal Court on October

17 of debauchery involving four boys under 18, sentenced to ten years imprisonment

and ordered to pay $5,000 in compensation to his victims.

"We did a thorough investigation," presiding judge and court director Svay

Sisarouth was reported as saying.

Recently Sisarouth had been criticized for freeing on bail for health reasons American

Terry Darrell Smith and his Cambodian girlfriend, who had been arrested and charged

with debauchery involving two girls aged 13 and 14. Smith was subsequently rearrested

and deported to the US to face outstanding charges there, but the girlfriend remains

free.
