BRIDGEPORT - The lawyer for a suspended Catholic priest who allegedly ran a meth ring is asking the judge for leniency when he is sentenced next week.

Monsignor Kevin Wallin pleaded guilty in 2013 to a conspiracy charge and agreed to a possible prison sentence of 10 to 11 years.

Wallin is now asking for four years in prison and 500 hours of community service.

He was a pastor at Saint Augustine Cathedral in Bridgeport before being suspended from the priesthood.
