HARTFORD, Conn. – Court records say a former Roman Catholic priest dubbed “Monsignor Meth” because he was running a meth distribution ring has a failed drug test and may have to return to the prison.
The Hartford Courant reports that court documents show Former Bridgeport Diocese, Monsignor Kevin Wallin recently tested positive for amphetamine at the facility where he is treated.
Probation officer Jose Vargas is in the court to suspend Wallin’s supervised release.
Wallin is expected to appear before a judge next week. The public defender does not respond immediately to an e-mail on the Saturday.
Wallin was sentenced to 65 months in federal prison and came to a controlled release program in November 2016.
He has failed drug tests before, but got another chance, and ordered to complete drug treatment programs.
