A Canadian schoolteacher suspected of having sex with dozens of young boys will be held in a Thai jail for at least 12 days, a court ordered Saturday, pending a trial on molestation charges. Christopher Paul Neil was arrested early Friday at a house in the rural northeastern province of Nakhon Ratchasima, which he rented with a Thai transvestite friend whose phone calls police had traced. A judge in the Bangkok Criminal Court signed a police order to extend his detention to 12 days, and could move later to keep him behind bars up to 84 days. After the brief hearing, Neil was incarcerated at the Bangkok Remand Prison.
