Confessed paedophile Maurice Van Ryn is set to be resentenced following a clerical error during the Director of Public Prosecutions’ appeal process in February this year.

The High Court of Australia on Friday ordered the resentencing take place in the Court of Criminal Appeal.

While Van Ryn will be resentenced, it is not expected he will receive a significant reduction to his sentence of 13 years and six months, if any at all.

At this stage it is unknown when Van Ryn’s resentencing will take place.
