The Latest on the release from prison of a former Roman Catholic priest convicted of child rape (all times local):

5:50 p.m.

Convicted pedophile priest Paul Shanley will be living across the street from a children’s dance studio.

The 86-year-old Shanley moved to the Massachusetts town of Ware on Friday shortly after being released from a prison in Bridgewater, where he finished serving a 12-year sentence for raping a boy in the 1980s.

His new home in a multiunit building is across the street from a recently opened dance studio that teaches children as young as 2.

The studio’s owner told The Boston Globe she plans to install “state-of-the-art” security systems and make sure every child leaves the studio accompanied by an adult.
