Convicted Child Rapist To Go To Prison…

Posted by Hello
Former priest Paul Shanley was sentenced to 12 to 15 years in prison for raping a boy time and again at a Boston parish in the 1980s.

"He used his collar and he used his worshipped status in that community," said the prosecutor Lynn Rooney, who asked for a life sentence. "There has been no remorse shown on the part of this defendant. There has been no acceptance of responsibility."

Shanley's lawyer claimed the case consisted of "vilification, half truths and lies."

He will be eligible for parole after serving two-thirds of his sentence. He was also sentenced to 10 years' probation.

Shanley is 74.
