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.

He pleaded guilty to promotion of the manufacture of meth, attempted initiation of the process to manufacture meth, the two simple possession charges and criminal impersonation and received a total of five years to serve. He will  be given credit for time already served in the county jail.

  • Thoughts for this holy time of Easter

    The first performance of George Friderick Handel's masterpiece, "Messiah," was given in Dublin, Ireland, on April 13, 1742, where it was well received. When it was performed in England there were criticisms of the music, performers and location of the performance. It was held that the subject matter was too exalted to perform in an opera house, but rather it should be performed in church. Wouldn't it be interesting if we knew how many times this magnificent music has been performed in the past 272 years?
