Kingsford woman pleads to meth charge

Alissa Cmejla

IRON MOUNTAIN — A Kingsford woman accused of selling methamphetamine pleaded guilty Monday in Dickinson County Circuit Court.

Alissa Cmejla, 38, was rearraigned in two separate files for the delivery or manufacture of a controlled substance, a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison; and possession of a controlled substance, a 10-year felony.

Cmejla was convicted as a two-time habitual offender in each file and faces up to 1 1/2 times the maximum penalty.

Sentencing is set for Feb. 4.

According to the criminal complaints, Cmejla sold methamphetamine in Kingsford Sept. 16 and 21 and was found in possession of the controlled substance Oct. 24.

Cmejla initially was charged in three separate files with a total of two counts of the delivery or manufacture of a controlled substance, as well as maintaining a drug house — a high-court misdemeanor punishable by up to two years in prison. She pleaded not guilty to all files Nov. 18.

But in exchange for Cmejla’s guilty plea, Dickinson County Prosecuting Attorney Lisa Richards agreed to dismiss one file and the high-court misdemeanor.

In addition, Richards also agreed to forego filing potential charges against Cmejla concerning her delivery and/or use of methamphetamine in a correctional facility in exchange for Cmejla’s testimony against other individuals.
