A priest accused of stalking Conan O'Brien pleaded guilty Tuesday to disorderly conduct.
The Rev. David Ajemian, 46, admitted in Manhattan Criminal Court that he sent letters and DVDs to the NBC talk-show host's home and office, and "I also sent mail to the home of Mr. O'Brien's parents." He said he never meant to cause anxiety or to upset anyone.
"I recognize that what I did was disorderly and I'm glad the people of New York have accepted that," Ajemian said as he left court. "I plan to return to the Archdiocese of Boston and I hope to return to ministry duties."
Judge Rita Mella ordered Ajemian to pay a $95 court charge and signed a two-year order of protection directing him to stay away from O'Brien.
The Roman Catholic priest was arrested while trying to enter the NBC building in Manhattan for a taping of "Late Night With Conan O'Brien" despite being warned to stay away by the network's security personnel.
