Judge: Former Priest A 'Danger To Community'


A federal magistrate on Tuesday called a former Episcopalian priest a danger to the community.

The judge denied bond for Donald Shissler, 72, Tuesday morning.

In 2002, Shissler pled guilty to assault charges involving an underage boy, but he was recently awarded a new trial.

Shissler now faces 8 counts of sexual assault on a child by a person in trust.

According to the Denver District Attorney’s office, Shissler lured young boys to his Denver home with promises of candy bars, games, a hot tub, a computer and television.
