HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A woman who authorities say helped supply nearly 10 pounds of methamphetamine to a drug operation in Connecticut run by a Catholic priest dubbed Monsignor Meth has been sentenced to five years in prison.

The Connecticut Post reports that 49-year-old Kristen Laschober, of Laguna Niguel, California, was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Hartford. She and her boyfriend, Chad McCluskey, of San Clemente, California, pleaded guilty last year to drug conspiracy charges connected to their meth business with now-suspended Monsignor Kevin Wallin.

McCluskey was sentenced to more than five years in prison in June.

Wallin has been nicknamed Monsignor Meth in some media reports. He pleaded guilty to a federal drug charge and awaits sentencing for selling large quantities of meth out of his apartment in Waterbury.
