Meet A Meth-Dealing, Cross-Dressing, Man-Loving Priest

Meet Monsignor Kevin Wallin, a 61-year-old priest with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport, Connecticut.

He's known for being a gracious, powerful speaker… and for being the ringleader of a cross-country meth-dealing ring.

That's right. After resigning from ministerial duties in 2011, the priest opened up "an adult specialty and video store in North Haven called Land of Oz that sells sex toys and X-rated DVDs" and, according to federal investigators, he used the store and several dealers in California to deal untold amounts meth.

When the feds began investigating "Monsignor Meth" from August to December 2012, "the priest took in more than $300,000 selling crystal meth to undercover narcs six times."

And as if that wasn't bad enough, The SF Gate reports:

"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.

The NY Daily News says that Wallin has "plead not guilty to seven federal charges: participating in a conspiracy to distribute crystal meth and making six sales to an undercover police officer… If convicted, he could face up to 20 years in prison and a $2 million fine."
