Central Figure in Boston Priest Sex Abuse Scandal Wants a New Trial

When it comes to sexual abuse notoriety, only one priest in the Archdiocese of Boston can come close to John Geoghan and that’s Paul Shanley. The 77 year old former Catholic priest wants a new trial based on what his new lawyer calls “junk science”. The lawyer is referring to the theory of repressed memories. Yet, when it comes to the Shanley case in Boston, hundreds of young boys, some as young as 6, were raped, sodomized, and abused for years by this monster. Obviously, the survivors of abuse in Boston are outraged by his request for a new trial.
Shanley, who once was associated with the North American Man Boy Love Association, is serving a 12-15 year prison sentence for raping a young boy.
