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.

One of the charges stemmed from Smith's arrest by the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department's CNET team that attempted to serve a warrant on Smith and discovered him in a one-room cabin off O-Camp Rd. with a duffel bag full of components used in the clandestine manufacture of meth.
