Roy Moore’s 26-year-old son Caleb lives a bit of a charmed life. By day he draws a paycheck working at his father’s Foundation for Moral Law – a non-profit that brings in hundreds of thousands of dollars a year, spends money supporting (guess who) Roy Moore, and also employs Roy’s wife – and by night… Well, this time you get to be the judge:
- In 2011, Caleb was arrested for DUI and drug possession
- In 2013, he was arrested for third-degree domestic violence
- Also in 2013, he was arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia
- In 2014, he was arrested for DUI in Florida
- And in Alabama
- And also for drug possession
- In 2015, he was arrested for drug possession
- In 2016, he was arrested for trespassing and hunting without a license.
With a rap sheet like that, you’d assume he’s done serious time, right? Well, you’d be wrong. Somehow, the long arm of the law never quite wraps itself around young Caleb. The worst thing that’s happened in poor Caleb’s life of crime is that after the 2013 drug paraphernalia arrest (not the domestic violence arrest, for which, strangely enough, there appears to be no record of the charge being resolved) is that he was ordered into a rehab program.
Months after starting treatment, he tested positive for marijuana, amphetamines and benzos. When the judge in the case was told that Caleb had been using while in the facility, he shrugged his shoulders and signed an order saying that Caleb had satisfactorily completed his treatment program. It must be nice to be Roy Moore’s kid.
Caleb also seems pretty confident in his chances when it comes to going toe to toe with police and prosecutors, and why shouldn’t he? After his 2015 arrest, he took to Facebook to rant about “crooked police officers” in Alabama who want to destroy his father and his family. What a guy.
It all begs the question: Does Roy Moore, former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and self-proclaimed moral leader, make a quick phone call whenever his miscreant son runs afoul of another inconvenient law? What happened with that 2013 domestic violence case? Did Daddy Moore make that go away, too?
Talk about crooked. No wonder Roy Moore is laughing. He’s laughing at us.
