Catholic priest known as the & # 39; Monster of Merewether & # 39; who has known that he has abused 30 boys, is still in jail for three years after being found guilty of MORE sex attacks
- A former priest has been sentenced to three years in prison for abusing two boys
- Vincent Gerard Ryan previously spent 14 years behind bars for abusing 30 boys
- A judge from Sydney said that Ryan, 81, has been rehabilitated and is unlikely to reoffend
A former Catholic priest has saved a longer prison sentence for the historic sexual abuse of two young boys after a judge in Sydney said he had been rehabilitated and probably would not be offended again.
But his victims say the idea that & # 39; Monster of Merewether & # 39; will change & # 39; a lot of bulls *** & # 39; is.
Vincent Gerard Ryan previously spent 14 years behind bars for sexually abusing more than 30 boys after admitting the police in an attempt to & # 39; clean the slate & # 39 ;.
He was sure that he had remembered them all, admitted that he always recited their names while they took care of & # 39;
But there were two children he had overlooked and in March the notorious pedophile was found guilty of four assault counts in the NSW Hunter region in the 1970s and 1980s. They were between 10 and 12 years old at the time.

Ryan abused one of those victims during a funeral. His other victim was initially abused when he tried to be an altar boy.
In the district court of NSW on Wednesday, judge Dina Yehia arrested the 81-year-old for three years and three months, with a non-parole period of 14 months.
Gerard McDonald was one of the dozens of victims who initially came forward and saw that Ryan had been sent to prison in 1996.
He was 10 when he was mistreated twice a week for most of 1975 in Ryan's car, when the priest dropped him from the practice of the altar boy at St. Joseph's at Merewether.

After seeing Ryan previously imprisoned for his sexual crimes, he was back in court on Wednesday to see how his abuser was sent back to prison.
& # 39; Very happy that he has to go to prison even more. It is not enough. He will get a few more years, we have life – we have this for life, & he told reporters out of court.
& # 39; The judge said he was reformed. What a load of bulls ***. He has not been reformed. He is a serial pedophile. He's a monster. & # 39;
Judge Yehia called Ryan & # 39; s actions & # 39; brutal and arrogant & # 39 ;.
She pointed out that the crimes justify a cumulated sentence of six years and seven months in prison, but said that in this case there were & # 39; special circumstances & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I am satisfied that he is being rehabilitated and it is unlikely that he will be offended again & # 39 ;, she said.
& # 39; I do not believe it is a risk to the community. & # 39;
One of her considerations was the opinion of a medical expert that Ryan was the most repentant & # 39; was the perpetrator he encountered and sending him back to prison might be & # 39; catastrophic & # 39; are for his mental health.
The court heard that the nature of Ryan's crimes spent his time behind bars, in particular & # 39; heavy & # 39; since he was the target of violence and threats.
Nevertheless, Judge Yehia said there was no other punishment that & # 39; sufficient & # 39; reflected the seriousness of Ryan & # 39; s crimes, leaving her no choice but to send him back to prison.
Victims and supporters applauded in the public gallery while Ryan was enthralled and taken away.
