The son of U.S. Sen. Mark Udall pleaded guilty to burglary and breaking into cars on Thursday under a deferred-judgment agreement that could result in his case eventually being dismissed.

Jedediah Fox-Udall, 27, entered his plea on Thursday and was sentenced to four years of supervision. If he stays out of trouble and meets the terms of his supervision, including paying restitution and avoiding drugs and alcohol, the case will be dismissed and he will not be convicted, said Pam Russell, a spokeswoman for the 1st Judicial District Attorney's Office.

He was arrested in January after he was accused of breaking into a home and cars in the semi-rural community of Eldorado Springs, where his family lives. At the time, investigators say he admitted using heroin in the previous two days. He later enrolled in an addiction treatment program.

Fox-Udall pleaded guilty to two felonies: burglary and auto trespass. In a statement issued by his lawyer, Alexander Garlin, Fox-Udall said he was "deeply sorry" for the toll his actions have taken.

"I am continuing to work on learning from my mistakes and will put in the work going forward that is necessary and required of me. I am committed to putting my life back into healthy balance," he said.

The case wasn't handled by the local district attorney, Stan Garnett, because of his ties to the Democratic senator, who is running for re-election in a tight campaign with  Rep. Cory Gardner.

Deferred judgments are common for people who commit non-violent crimes, Russell said.
