|Serial Child Rapist Wayne Chapman Due Back In Court|
WOBURN (CBS/AP) – Serial child rapist Wayne Chapman will be back in court Monday to face charges from incidents in prison last month.
Chapman, 70, will be arraigned in Middlesex Superior Court on an indictment charging him with open and gross lewdness and lewd, wanton and lascivious acts at MCI Shirley on June 3 and 4. He pleaded not guilty to the same charges at his arraignment in a lower court in Ayer on June 6. The charges stem from incidents in his cell in which Chapman allegedly exposed and touched himself in front of prison nurses several times.
Chapman had been on the verge of being released from MCI-Shirley, where he’s been held since 1977. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison for raping two boys from Lawrence. When Chapman finished his sentence in 2007, prosecutors fought for a civil commitment to keep him locked up as “a sexually dangerous person.” Court filings show he has admitted to molesting as many as 100 boys.
