A Magnolia couple Ricky Glenn Stearman, 48, and Tammy Lynn Stearman, 35, entered guilty pleas to drug charges in LaRue Circuit Court Monday.

The Stearmans were each charged with manufacturing methamphetamine, first offense; unlawful possession of meth precursor and first-degree wanton endangerment, according to court records. Shaun Christopher Manookian, 27, of the same address faced the same charges.

Officers said they found an active methamphetamine lab on the property last year. Four children were living in the residence at the time of the investigation, according to court records.

Tammy Lynn Stearman pleaded guilty to one count of complicity, manufacturing methamphetamine; complicity, use or possession of meth precursor; three counts of complicity, wanton endangerment; two counts of complicity, possession of marijuana; complicity, use or possession of drug paraphernalia; and two counts of complicity, possession of controlled substance.

She was sentenced to 10 years on the first count and one year on following counts with time to run concurrently for a total of 10 years.

The commonwealth’s attorney opposed probation.

Ricky Glen Stearman pleaded guilty to one count of complicity, manufacturing methamphetamine; and three counts of complicity, wanton endangerment with recommended sentence of five years on each count to run concurrently for a total of five years, probated.

Manookian has entered a guilty plea to the same charges; however his final sentencing is in July.
