Drug charges against the son of Alabama’s chief justice have been dropped.
AL.com reported Wednesday that court records show the charges were dropped several months ago after Caleb Moore agreed to enter a pre-trial diversion program with the Pike County District Attorney’s Office.
Moore is the son of Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, a conservative Christian who made national headlines last year with his attempts to block gay marriage.
Caleb Moore was facing charges of felony possession of the prescription medication alprazolam and misdemeanor marijuana possession. He was arrested in March in Troy. Police responding to a possible break-in said they reported smelling marijuana and finding Xanax.
Caleb Moore pleaded guilty in 2013 and 2014 to separate misdemeanor charges of possession of drug paraphernalia.
