Shanley's out

The Rev. Paul Shanley, an accused pedophile priest at the heart of a clergy sexual abuse crisis in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Boston, walked out of jail on Wednesday after an unidentified group of friends raised bail to free him. Shanley walked out of the Middlesex County Courthouse as his lawyer and another man, apparently a bodyguard, shoved reporters out of the way. A half-dozen protesters stood outside the courthouse denouncing prosecutors for not blocking the release. Under the terms of his bail, Shanley was forced to give up his passport and promise to remain in Massachusetts and have no contact with victims or witnesses in his case.
