SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - An attorney who works in the Salt Lake City attorney's office has been charged with making a marijuana byproduct in a makeshift lab at his home.

James Robinson was charged Friday in 3rd District Court with operation of a clandestine laboratory, possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute and possession or use of a controlled substance.

His two sons, 21-year-old Alexander and 18-year-old Zachary Robinson, were charged Wednesday with similar violations.

The three were arrested following a search of their home Tuesday.

They are accused of manufacturing the marijuana byproduct called "Dab" or "Shatter," a concentrated, caramel-like substance produced from raw pot.

The 50-year-old Robinson has represented the police department in civil matters.

It's unclear if he has an attorney. Efforts to reach him at home were unsuccessful.
