Accusers protest release of former priest convicted of raping boy

Posted: Updated:

BRIDGEWATER, Mass. (AP) - A lawyer who represented dozens of men who say they were abused by a former Boston Roman Catholic priest who's been released from prison says the man shouldn't be in "the outside world" where he can gain access to children.
    
Paul Shanley was released from a prison in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, on Friday after serving a 12-year sentence for the rape of a boy.
    
The state's sex offender registry lists Shanley as a Level 3 offender, meaning he is most likely to re-offend. The registry says he plans to live in the town of Ware. Shanley won't have to wear an electronic monitor.
    
Lawyer Mitchell Garabedian says Shanley should be confined to a hospital where he can be treated.
    
Shanley's lawyer says he has served his time and is not dangerous.
