US man gets 27 months for priest's meth sales
HARTFORD, Connecticut (AP) - A man who helped a priest sell methamphetamine has been sentenced to 27 months in prison.
Fifty-three-year-old Kenneth DeVries was sentenced on Tuesday in federal court in Hartford. He pleaded guilty in June to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine.
DeVries has prostate cancer and had asked to be sentenced to time he'd already spent behind bars. He could've faced up to four years in prison.
Prosecutors say DeVries had a limited role in the conspiracy involving Monsignor Kevin Wallin, who's been nicknamed Monsignor Meth by media outlets.
