Paul Shanley,

Catholic priest, was arrested in May in San Diego and charged with three counts of child rape. He was extradited to Massachusetts, where he had served as a priest for 30 years. He was indicted in June in Massachusetts on charges of raping four children between 1979 and 1989. Documents released in April by the Boston archdiocese revealed that Shanley was a member of the North American Man-Boy Love Association and that archdiocese officials repeatedly transferred him from parish to parish, despite knowing that he was a child molester.
