Priest Arrested for Drug Possession Pleads to Lesser Charges

A South Charleston priest facing drug charges has pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Father James O'Conner was arrested on felony drug charges last month.

Police say they found 73-grams of marijuana in his car.

In exchange for the guilty plea, prosecutors agreed to dismiss the felony charges.

O'Conner was ordered to pay about $260 to settle the case.

The Diocese suspended O'Conner from his duties at the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church following his arrest.
