WARE (CBS) — A forensic psychologist says that convicted sex offender Paul Shanley should still be behind bars.

Shanley is classified as a “Level 3 Sex Offender” and that designation is given to those who are considered to be high risks to re-offend.

Paul Zeizel, in fact, referred to Shanley as a “monster.”

“Shanley was a monster and there’s no doubt about that,” Zeizel said about the 86-year-old former priest. “From mu understanding the age of his victims were remarkably young.”

At least one of his victims was six-years-old. …

“The most dangerous subset of the sex-offending population are pedophiles–male pedophiles who have male victims,” Zeisel said.
