(NECN: Brad Puffer, Boston, Mass.) - A former New York priest was sentenced in a Boston courtroom today for raping children 30 years ago. Several of his victims showed up in court.

51-year-old Frank Genevieve allegedly took the victims on field trips to Boston and would abuse them in the rectory across the street from Christopher Columbus High School in the North End.

He was given five years probation in the past. He is a registered sex offender and wears a bracelet.

His victims say justice has finally been served.
