Meth plea nets 5-year sentence

CROSSVILLE — Adam Brian Smith was facing multiple drug and other charges. Appearing before Criminal Court Judge David Patterson he decided to cut his losses and accept a state offer that called for him to plead guilty to some charges in exchange for a five-year prison sentence.

Smith, 32, whose address was listed as on O-Camp Rd., was facing two counts of initiation of the process to manufacture methamphetamine, promotion of the manufacture of methamphetamine, simple possession of meth, simple possession of marijuana and criminal impersonation.
