NEW HAVEN, Conn. - A suspended Connecticut priest accused of taking in more than $300,000 from methamphetamines deals plans to plead guilty to one of the charges against him, according to a Tuesday court filing.
Kevin Wallin is 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. Tuesday's filing was obtained by The Associated Press.
A message left with his attorney wasn't immediately 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 Waterbury apartment last year.
Wallin is the former pastor of St. Augustine Parish in Bridgeport.
