Connecticut man gets 27 months for priest's meth sales

Tuesday, 17 September 2013 16:40 Published in National News

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut man who helped a priest sell methamphetamine has been sentenced to 27 months in prison.

Fifty-three-year-old Waterbury resident Kenneth DeVries was sentenced 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.

Wallin pleaded guilty to a drug charge in April. He faces 11 to 14 years in prison.

DeVries has said he looked up to Wallin as a religious leader and someone who was supposed to help him.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri education officials are seeking an additional $6.8 million to help an unaccredited school district in the St. Louis area.

The State Board of Education approved the budget request Tuesday for the Normandy district. That's the first step in a process that ultimately requires the support of the governor and Legislature to become a reality.

Students started transferring out of the Normandy and Riverview Gardens districts this year under a state law that requires unaccredited districts to pay the costs for students who want to attend other public schools.

The state Department of Elementary and Secondary Education says Normandy is projected to run out of money in March.

The additional funding recommended Tuesday would come as a supplemental state budget item to be considered after lawmakers convene in January.

 

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two members of the University of Missouri' s governing board say they did not order football Coach Gary Pinkel to dismiss a star running back after the player's 2010 arrest on sexual assault charges.

Derrick Washington was Missouri's leading rusher as a sophomore and junior until he was kicked off the team before his senior year after the accusations by a Tiger tutor. He was convicted in in 2011 of deviate sexual assault and served four months in prison.

Washington's mother told the authors of "The System," a book released Tuesday, that Pinkel wanted to keep her son on the team but was overruled by Missouri's Board of Curators.

Board chairman Wayne Goode and another curator told The Associated Press they never met with Pinkel nor discussed Washington.
