Wayne Chapman - Serial Pedophile To remain in prison

Wayne Chapman was convicted of sexually abusing more than 100 boys in six states, including Massachusetts.

BOSTON - A convicted sex offender and murder suspect has been ruled to be still sexually dangerous, and he will remain in jail for at least another year until he can try to get out again.

Wayne Chapman served 30 years in prison, and when his sentence was over, he was committed instead of released.
This week he was in court fighting to see the outside of prison walls. Chapman has a long arrest record, and he’s a suspect in one child murder and in the disappearance of another child.

He has served time for raping boys in Lawrence and Fall River, and he's been charged with sex offenses in Pennsylvania, New York, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.

He's emerged as the prime suspect in the disappearance of Andy Puglisi from Lawrence in 1976.
Chapman is now nearly 61 years old, and his lawyers say he's a very sick man, suffering dementia and incontinence. They say he’s too old and sick to offend again.

The state says even though he’s been in prison since the 70s, he's still sexually dangerous.
“Wayne Chapman is a repetitive, compulsive sex offender whose deviant arousal to boys, his pedophilia, has driven his sexual conduct, driven his sexual drive, and has been fueled, and maintained, despite his incarceration,” Mary Murray, from the Massachusetts Department of Corrections, told the court.
The jury made the ruling on Friday to keep him in jail.
