When news broke that 70-year-old Wayne Chapman was just days away from walking free, despite being convicted of raping two children and suspected in the disappearance of a third, many were outraged. Chapman has been in prison since he was convicted of raping two young boys in 1977 and was sentenced to 15-30 years in prison. However, a few months ago, two “qualified examiners” deemed Chapman no longer sexually dangerous — which automatically triggers his release, under current state law.

Attorney Wendy Murphy filed a petition on behalf of the victims last month, arguing the state's highest court should keep Chapman from walking free. A single justice denied the petition, but that decision is now being reviewed by the full Supreme Judicial Court.

Chapman is also facing new charges of sexual misconduct while in prison. Adam Reilly, in for Jim Braude, was joined by attorney Murphy, along with one of the victims, Bob, who she's representing.
