Conan’s priest stalker avoids slammer

The Catholic priest charged with stalking late-night talk show host, Conan O’Brien, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct on Tuesday.

The plea allowed 48-year-old Boston reverend, David Ajemian to avoid trial and a potential 90-day jail sentence for charges of aggravated harassment and stalking, which prosecutors withdrew.

Accompanied by his parents, Ajemian stated outside the courthouse, “I regret my behavior that caused concern to the people that I was trying to contact.” Ajemian has been issued a restraining order to stay away from O’Brien for two years.

Ajemian admitted to sending packages and letters, signed from “your priest stalker,” to O’Brien’s home, workplace, and parents’ home beginning in September 2006. Ajemian was arrested in November after disrupting a taping of NBC’s Late Night With Conan O’Brien.

Ajemian and O’Brien both attended Harvard University at the same time; however, it is unknown if the two had contact with one another.
