Evil Shanley's Lawyers Tear Victim Apart

Evil former priest Paul Shanley's having way too much luck so far in court. He's down to one victim testifying against him and defense lawyers are working hard to tear the man apart once again.

Especially sickening is that a UC-Irvine professor will testify on Shanley's behalf regarding the issue of repressed memories. Yet another disgrace to the UC system this week.

I'm sure Shanley's lawyers have no trouble sleeping at night, but I don't know what Elizabeth Loftus's excuse is:

(Boston Herald)

A day after he begged a judge not to make him return to court, the man accusing defrocked priest Paul Shanley of raping him as a child finished testifying yesterday, but defense lawyers are preparing to challenge his claim that he recovered memories of the alleged abuse nearly 20 years after he says it occurred.
Next week, the defense will call Elizabeth Loftus, a University of California at Irvine psychologist frequently paid to testify as an expert about what she has called the ``myth'' of repressed memory.
The alleged victim, a 27-year-old firefighter and former military police officer, claims Shanley repeatedly molested him between the ages of 6 and 12 while he was a Sunday school student at St. Jean's parish in Newton, but says he buried any memory of the abuse until he began having flashbacks in 2002.
