HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) – A California man will soon face sentencing for supplying methamphetamine to a Roman Catholic priest’s drug operation in Connecticut.
Federal prosecutors are seeking an eight-year prison sentence for 44-year-old Chad McCluskey of San Clemente, who is set to be sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Hartford. Defense lawyers are asking for a five-year sentence.
McCluskey and his girlfriend, Kristen Laschober of Laguna Niguel, California, pleaded guilty last year to drug conspiracy charges for supplying four pounds of meth to now-suspended priest Kevin Wallin of Waterbury. Laschober awaits sentencing.
Wallin is a former pastor at St. Augustine Parish in Bridgeport. He has pleaded guilty to a federal drug charge for selling meth out of his Waterbury apartment and awaits sentencing. He’s facing 11 to 14 years in prison.
