Video: Catholic Priest Kevin Wallin Accused of Selling Meth, Cross-Dressing, Having Sex in Church
Former Catholic Priest Kevin Wallin, who was recently arrested in a crystal meth ring, dressed as a woman, used bizarre sex toys and had sex in the church rectory with odd-looking men, reports the Connecticut Post.
Wallin, who was a priest at Bridgeport, Connecticut St. Augustine Cathedral, was indicted with four other men for allegedly running a drug ring which sent shipments of methamphetamine from California for sale in Connecticut (video below).
Wallin was arrested on January 3 after allegedly trying to sell drugs to an undercover agent. Meth, drug paraphernalia and drug packaging materials were found in his home, reports WPIX-TV.
The 61-year-old Wallin, who allegedly sold as much as $9,000 of meth per week, faces a maximum of 20 years in jail and up to $6 million in fines.
Diocese Spokesman Brian Wallace told the Connecticut Post: “We approached him and he admitted he was struggling a bit and shortly after that he resigned [July 2011] and the bishop granted him a sabbatical."
The Connecticut Post reported:
While pastor of St. Augustine’s, sources said he often disappeared for days at a time; and rectory personnel became concerned and notified diocese officials when Wallin, sometimes dressed as a woman, would entertain odd-looking men, some who were also dressed in women’s clothing and engaging in sex acts.
After leaving the priesthood, Wallin purchased a North Haven, Connecticut adult film store, which may have been used to launder drug money, police said.
