A suspended Roman Catholic priest who was accused of selling more than $300,000 worth of methamphetamine from his apartment pleaded guilty on Tuesday to a federal drug charge.
The priest, Msgr. Kevin Wallin of Waterbury, admitted to conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with intent to distribute it. He is scheduled to be sentenced on June 25 to an agreed-upon sentence of 11 to 14 years.
An undercover officer bought methamphetamine from Monsignor Wallin six times, paying more than $3,400 for 23 grams of the drug, the authorities said.
