LISBON, Ohio (WKBN) — Christopher L. Miller, one of the four people reportedly found with a meth lab in his East Washington Street apartment last winter pleaded guilty Monday in Common Pleas Court.
Miller, 23, pleaded guilty to illegal manufacture of drugs, illegal assembly or possession of chemicals for the manufacture of drugs, trafficking in drugs, possession of drugs and endangering children.
Assistant Prosecutor Ryan Weikart said there were two children living in the apartment, including a 9-year-old who was there at the time the county drug task force searched the home on Jan. 16, 2015.
Weikart said he believed Miller was making money from selling the product, saying there was a lot of traffic to the home prior to the search.
Although he pleaded guilty to the charges, Miller denied he was selling the drugs being produced. He faces five years in prison.
Miller’s wife, Heather Miller, 34, was in the courtroom Monday and is scheduled for a plea hearing on Tuesday.
The other two people at the home on the day of the search — Regina Marker, 28, and Alex L. Porter, have both pleaded guilty to meth-related charges.
