Three sentenced for meth charges

CORBIN — By John L. Ross / Staff Writer

Three people arrested in June 2012 after deputies learned children were in a house where methamphetamine was getting manufactured have now been sentenced in Knox County Circuit Court.

Nicholas Cima, 34, Thea Andrea Cima, 34, of Cannon, and Steven Angel, 29, of London, each received a 10-year sentence Friday.

According to Knox County Sheriff John Pickard, Deputy Roy Gambrel along with representatives with Knox County Social Services responded to the home in the Cannon community.

Pickard said Gambrel found several people and two children in the home, where he detected a strong chemical odor consistent with manufacturing methamphetamine.  

Gambrel obtained permission to search the property and found several items needed to make meth, as well as finished meth.

The deputy also found two marijuana plants.  

The Cimas were each convicted of their first offense of manufacturing methamphetamine, two counts of fourth-degree controlled substance endangerment to a child, first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense, and cultivating five or less plants of marijuana.

Angel was convicted of his first offense of manufacturing methamphetamine, two counts of fourth-degree controlled substance endangerment to a child, and first-degree possession of a controlled substance, first offense.

Kentucky State Police cleaned up the scene at the Cimas’ Cannon home.
