WARE (CBS/AP) – One of the most notorious figures in the Boston Archdiocese priest sex abuse scandal is moving to central Massachusetts.

Paul Shanley, 86, was released from prison Friday morning after serving a 12-year sentence for repeatedly raping and fondling a boy at St. Jean’s parish in Newton in the 1980s.

Shanley left the Old Colony Correctional Center in Bridgewater and will now be living in an apartment about 100 miles away on Pulsaki Street in Ware, according to the state sex offender registry.

The Sex Offender Registry Board has classified him as the most dangerous, a Level 3 offender, meaning they believe he has a high risk to re-offend. The classification also gives the public access to information to where he will be living.
