Pedophile priest Shanley’s new home bringing scrutiny to sex offender housing

As pedophile former priest Paul Shanley settles into his new home in Ware, 5 Investigates discovers he’s living in a hot spot for high-risk sex offenders, meaning he may have to move if one state lawmaker gets his way.

“Hi Mr. Shanley, how are you?” 5 Investigates’ Mike Beaudet asked him.

“Good,” the former priest answered before shutting the door of his new home in Ware.

The 86-year-old Shanley has kept a low profile since his release from prison in July after serving 12 years for rape and abuse of a child.

Shanley moved onto Pulaski Street in Ware, to a property where two other Level 3 sex offenders live, right across the street from a new dance studio and a school bus stop.

Their landlord is Joel Pentlarge, yet another Level 3 sex offender.

In all, Ware has 19 Level 3 sex offenders living in town.

Pedophile priest’s offending unprecedented

Australia’s worst pedophile priest Gerald Francis Ridsdale spent three decades sexually abusing vulnerable children in unprecedented offending a prosecutor argues demands an unprecedented sentence.

A judge who agrees Ridsdale’s case is the worst example of such offending ever dealt with in Victoria must now decide whether the 83-year-old spends even longer in jail for the historical crimes.

Ridsdale’s offending took place over such a long period of time, involved so many people and destroyed so many lives that the interests of justice demand a sentence that could properly be called unprecedented, crown prosecutor Jeremy McWilliams said.

“It is hard to imagine a man who has had a more devastating effect on those who have had the misfortune of coming into contact with him,” Mr McWilliams told the Victorian County Court on

Disgraced Pedophile Priest Released From Prison

A former priest convicted of rape was recently released after serving 12 years in prison.

REUTERS/Jodi HiltonPriest Paul Shanley, listens to a procedural discussion in his trial, at Middlesex County Courthouse in Massachusetts.

Paul Shanley is a disgraced former priest who was convicted back in 2005 after it was proven that he repeatedly raped a Sunday school student back in the 1980s.

Prior to his conviction, Shanley served as a priest in St. Jean’s Parish in Newton, Massachusetts, where he ministered to alienated teens and troubled youth during the ’60s and ’70s. Years after, several of Shanley’s victims came out claiming that the priest had abused them when they were younger. All in all, there were about two dozen people who claimed that Shanley had either molested or raped them.

In light of these claims of abuse, Shanley was finally defrocked by

Neighbors of pedophile ex-priest fear he’ll re-offend

WARE, Mass. (WPRI) – Former priest and convicted pedophile Paul Shanley settled into his new home in Ware, Mass. Friday night as a free man.

Shanley was released Friday morning from the Massachusetts Old Colony Correctional Facility in Bridgewater after serving 12 years of a 15-year sentence for raping a boy in the 1980’s. Dozens of men came forward decades later saying Shanley had molested or raped them too.

Shanley, now 86, first had to register with local police as a Level 3 sex offender, which is the highest level and considered the most likely to re-offend.

“It’s their decision where they can live,” Ware Police Chief Shawn Crevier said.

“We’re definitely concerned about this,” said Liz Pelletier, a mother who lives in Shanley’s new neighborhood.

Several of Shanley’s alleged victims and other victim advocates have also voiced concerns, saying they believe
