A convicted sex offender was back in a courtroom Monday amid outrage from community members in Weymouth, Massachusetts.
Richard Gardner was arrested at a Boston shelter Friday night on a fugitive from justice charge out of Rhode Island.
Gardner is a Level 3 sex offender who was released after nearly three decades behind bars for kidnapping and raping boys in the 1980s.
The district attorney says Gardner was freed due to a human error.
He is now charged with violating the terms and conditions of his release after he was kicked out of the Quincy Library for violating a local ordinance.
According to court documents, Gardner, "entered and remained in a place frequented by children which is in violation of the no contact order issued."
He was held without bail following his appearance in court and a judge accepted his waiver of extradition.
A date for his return back to Rhode Island has not been set.
His latest arrest comes after residents in his parent's Weymouth neighborhood filed a petition for GPS bracelets on sex offenders.
