A Walker County attorney was indicted Monday on a charge of possession of a controlled substance.
According to court records, William Davis Hentz, 63, of Chickamauga, Ga., allegedly caught possessing Lorazepam, an anti-anxiety drug that is a schedule IV controlled substance.
Hentz was booked and released on his own recognizance Tuesday. He is scheduled to be arraigned June 24, with a trial date scheduled for Nov. 16.
This is the second time in recent months that Hentz, who practices in LaFayette, has been in trouble with the law.
In February, he was charged with misdemeanor theft for allegedly shoplifting $21.00 worth of flash drives from a LaFayette store. His trial in that case is set for September 14.
