According to a report in the Lowell Sun, Shanley has previous convictions for indecent assault and battery on a person 14 or older (1983) and aggravated rape and rape (1985).
Shanley met the woman at a local bar, bought her a drink, then took her back to a room at the Motel 6, where he assaulted her, according to the report.
