Connecticut priest charged with meth sales

Catholic World News - January 17, 2013

A suspended priest of the Bridgeport, Connecticut diocese has been charged with conspiracy to sell methamphetamine.

Police charge that Msgr. Kevin Wallin was engaged in a criminal conspiracy to distribute the highly addictive stimulant. The Bridgeport diocese reported that Msgr. Wallin, who once served as private secretary to then-Bishop Edward Egan, had taken a leave of absence beginning in July 2011, and had not returned to active ministry. "During his sabbatical, the diocese became concerned about Msgr. Wallin's well-being and have continued to reach out to him," a spokesman said. But the priest did not respond, and in May 2012 he was suspended from public ministry.
