william lynn next year. with monsignor william lynn out on bail, williams is already planning the prosecution against him. while some evidence detailing the history of priest abuse and cover-up in the archdiocese may very well not be allowed in court this time around. williams believes his team will have enough to convince a jury to convict lynn again. >> when allegations were made, of sexual abuse against priests in our archdiocese, how they would handle that, how they would not tell the police, how they would tell the parishioners that the priest is being moved for health reasons. >> reporter: d.a. williams did not waiver in his decision to retry the case, in large part he said because of the abuse survivors. an attorney in philadelphia for some of those survivors explains another conviction for lynn would be significant. but it shouldn't stop there. >> the only way to move the ball forward is with the archdiocese

to come clean, so to speak. not oppose the statute of limitations retroactive provisions, and allow survivors to come forward, and get the justice they want. >> reporter: we also spoke to monsignor lynn's attorney. he said even if a second jury convicts his client, lynn would probably only serve about two months in prison because that's how much time he has left on the sentence from his first conviction from the first trial. even though, d.a. seth williams said it's worth it in the fight for justice for the victims in this case. reporting live in center city, i'm rosemary connors, nbc 10 news. >> rosemary, thank you. nbc 10 was the only local station there when lynn walked out of prison late this afternoon. lynn was being held about two and a half hours north of philadelphia in wayne county. even if prosecutors get his conviction reinstated, he may not spend much more time in prison. deanna durante explains.
