BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - The son of U.S. Sen. Mark Udall has been charged with breaking into a home and four cars after allegedly using heroin.
Twenty-six-year-old Jedediah Lee Fox-Udall was advised of the charges during a brief court hearing in Boulder Thursday.
He faces charges of trespassing, burglary, theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Deputies say after they arrested Fox-Udall on Jan. 30, he told them he had recently used heroin, but prosecutors say no heroin was found and he wasn't charged with drug possession.
His lawyer, Alex Garlin, says Fox-Udall is in an addiction treatment program and "is dedicated to turning his life around."
Fox-Udall's mother, Maggie Fox, sat beside him in the courtroom, her hand resting on his leg. They both left in a waiting SUV without comment.
