Monsignor Meth Pleads Guilty

It looks like Kevin Wallin, the breaking bad priest known in the press as “Monsignor Meth,” is going to prison.

Wallin, who was on suspension from the priesthood at the time of his arrest, pled guilty to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine. He is scheduled to be sentenced June 25 and is expected to receive a sentence of between 11 and 14 years in prison. Since this is a federal crime, he may serve most of his sentence behind bars. 

Wallin, who is 61, will probably be an elderly man if he ever goes free again. 

In addition to taking up drug trafficking, Wallin had also opened an adult video and sex toy shop named Oz & Dorothy’s Place. He is accused of using the shop to launder the drug money.

From the Associated Press: 

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A suspended Roman Catholic priest accused of making more than $300,000 in methamphetamine sales out of his Connecticut apartment while running an adult video and sex toy shop pleaded guilty Tuesday to a federal drug charge.

Kevin Wallin, 61, of Waterbury, admitted to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and was scheduled to be sentenced June 25. The prosecution and defense agreed on a sentence of 11 to 14 years in prison.

Prosecutors said the 61-year-old Wallin had meth mailed to him from co-conspirators in California and sold the drugs out of his Waterbury apartment last year. He also bought an adult video and sex toy shop in North Haven named Land of Oz & Dorothy’s Place, apparently to launder the drug money, authorities said.

Wearing a beige prison jumpsuit and sporting a goatee and close-cropped hair, Wallin acknowledged in court that the drug operation involved nearly four pounds of methamphetamine. He said “yes” several times as the judge asked whether he understood the consequences of his plea.

Wallin, former pastor at St. Augustine Parish in Bridgeport, appeared to have no supporters in the courtroom. He was led out of the room in handcuffs and remains detained. (Read the rest here.)
