A former Alabama state trooper faces two counts of sodomy.
The indictment, returned by a Pike County grand jury, alleges 36-year-old Christopher Lee Stanton of Troy committed illicit sexual acts with an underaged female.
Stanton had worked in the Highway Patrol Division in Montgomery County. He resigned from the Department of Public Safety in mid August.
Stanton was arrested Monday and was being held in the Pike County Jail.
