Priest Caught Selling Cocaine. Told Not To Do It Again
The Reverend Christopher Layden, a Catholic priest working on the University of Illinois campus has been charged with selling cocaine out of his retum rectory. But, I’m sure he was just trying to make ends meet in these hard economic times. The good reverend plead guilty to the class 1 felony charge and was given 4 years … probation.
In another story, a Chicago area man was arrested for selling cocaine near a park and was given 12 years in prison.
In February 2008, a Bloomington IL man was sentenced to life in prison for selling cocaine.
A Shorewood IL teenager was given four years in prison for selling cocaine.
But, I’m sure everything is on the up and up.
The Diocese of the Peoria area says he was “saddended” by Layden’s behavior.
