BOULDER, Colo. -

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. His lawyer waived a formal reading of the charges. He said Fox-Udall is an addiction treatment program and "is dedicated to turning his life around."
    
Fox-Udall was also charged with misdemeanor theft for allegedly taking $80 from one car and one count of possessing drug paraphernalia. After he was arrested Jan. 30 in Eldorado Springs, authorities say he admitted using heroin in the previous 48 hours.
    
His mother, Maggie Fox, sat beside Fox-Udall in the courtroom, her hand resting on his leg. They both left in a waiting SUV without comment.
