Suspened father Kevin Wallin of Waterbury, Connecticut who was accused of making more than 300,000 dollars selling drugs and running an adult video and sex toy shop has pleaded guilty.
According to reports, the 61-year-old admitted to methamphetamine sales, conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine which he received from California and traded steadily out of his apartment last year .
Wallin is scheduled to be sentenced 11 to 14 years on June 25.
MSN reported that Wallin resigned as pastor of St. Augustine Parish in Bridgeport, Connecticut in 2011, citing health and personal problems.
Dubbed “Monsignor Meth,” Wallin was pastor of the church for nine years.
He was arrested in January, and a grand jury indicted him and four other people on drug charges.
An undercover officer bought meth from Wallin six times. Federal agents said they learned through phone taps and informants about other sales Wallin was making.
Connecticut US Attorney David Fein said the arrests dismantled “a significant methamphetamine distribution organization that spanned from California to Connecticut.”
