IL - Priest charged with selling cocaine, Urbana-Champaign
A Catholic priest was charged this week with selling cocaine from his office and residence at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, local news organizations report.
The Rev. Christopher Layden, 33, was arrested Wednesday after police found "about 3 grams of powder cocaine and items of drug paraphernalia" while executing a search warrant on the campus, according to The Pantagraph.
Layden pleaded not guilty to three charges, the paper says.

Say it ain't so Father.
We had a Priest in Philly years ago busted in a reverse sting buying drugs. They put his mugshot on the front page of the paper and all. I guess the lesson here is the guy is only human.
Oh I found an old interview with Father Layden about internet confession. Father isn't for it. "There's something cathartic about revealing ourselves to another individual". IN all seriousness I wonder if he went to confession and confessed his drug use and nlawful drug dealing.
