Former Justice Court Judge arrested

Posted: Updated:

A former Jefferson County justice court judge has been charged with selling drugs to undercover police officers.

58-year-old Charlie Chambliss of Lorman was charged with one count each for sale of a controlled substance in Jefferson and Claiborne counties.

Chambliss was arrested Friday in an investigation by a multi-county drug task force.

Claiborne County Sheriff Frank Davis said the former judge sold hydrocodone to undercover officers.

It's unclear how long Chambliss had been off the bench.
