Connecticut Priest Accused Of Selling Over $300,000 Worth Of Meth - “Monsignor Meth.” - 

A Roman Catholic priest from Connecticut pleaded guilty to one of the charges accusing him of making more than $300,000 selling methamphetamine.

The Rev. Kevin Wallin was scheduled to appear in U.S. District Court in Hartford next week for a hearing in which he would plead guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

The filing Tuesday was obtained by The Associated Press.

Authorities say the Wallin, 61, had methamphetamine mailed to him from co-conspirators in California. He allegedly made more than $300,000 in drugs sales out of his apartment in Waterbury last year.

In some published reports, he has been nicknamed “Monsignor Meth.”

Published reports about Wallin said he also allegedly bought a head shop and adult bookstore in North Haven called Land of Oz & Dorothy’s Place to launder the money he generated from the meth sales.

Wallin is the former pastor of St. Augustine Parish in Bridgeport.

The Connecticut Post reported earlier this year that Wallin had been subjected to an investigation from the Diocese of Bridgeport in 2011, after reports of erratic behavior. Diocese officials had learned that he had been acting out sexually with men in the church rectory, the newspaper reported.

A message left with his attorney was not immediately returned.
