As a defrocked priest was led out of a courtroom yesterday in handcuffs, a young man glared at him and said loud enough for him to hear, "You'll get yours."

Robert Burns, 56, was arraigned yesterday in Suffolk Superior Court on six charges of rape and seven charges of indecent assault and battery on a child.

It could not be confirmed whether the burly redhead was one of the five men that Burns is accused of raping and molesting when they were youngsters in the 1980s and early 1990s at St. Thomas Aquinas Church in Jamaica Plain and St. Mary's Church in Charlestown.

Burns, who served more than three years in prison for molesting another boy in Concord, N.H., after his expulsion from the priesthood in the mid-1990s, was expected to post $5,000 cash bail after his arraignment yesterday.
