MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The son of Alabama's chief justice has been indicted on drug charges.
Court records made public Tuesday show 25-year-old Caleb Moore is charged with felony possession of the prescription medication alprazolam and misdemeanor marijuana possession.
Caleb Moore is the son of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, a conservative Christian who has made national headlines recently trying to block gay marriage. Moore also is known for erecting a Ten Commandments monument in Alabama's court building.
Caleb Moore's attorney Richard Jaffe said the indictment caught him "a bit off-guard" and declined further comment.
Caleb Moore was arrested in March in Troy. Police responding to a possible break-in reported smelling marijuana and finding Xanax.
Caleb Moore pleaded guilty in 2013 and 2014 to separate misdemeanor charges of possession of drug paraphernalia.
