Suspended priest to plead guilty to drug charge

A court filing shows a suspended Roman Catholic priest in Connecticut accused of making more than $300,000 in sales of methamphetamines plans to plead guilty to 1 of the charges.

Kevin Wallin is scheduled to appear Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Hartford for a hearing in which he would plead guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

Messages left with his attorney were not returned.

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

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