Feds: 'Monsignor Meth' Dealt Drug, Bought Sex Shop

Posted: Updated:

 

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Jury selection has been scheduled for March for a suspended Roman Catholic priest in Connecticut charged in an alleged methamphetamine drug-selling operation.
Sixty-one-year-old Monsignor Kevin Wallin of Waterbury remains detained without bail on federal charges accusing him of shipping methamphetamine from California to his apartment and making more than $300,000 in drug sales in the second half of last year. He was one of five people arrested and indicted by a grand jury this month.

Wallin resigned as pastor of St. Augustine Parish in Bridgeport in June 2011, citing health and personal problems. Diocese of Bridgeport officials suspended him last May.
A diocese spokesman told the Connecticut Post that there were complaints about Wallin's appearance, erratic behavior and sexual encounters with men in the St. Augustine rectory.
