State Sen. Thomas W. Libous and his son Matthew were indicted Tuesday on separate charges, the New York Times reports.

Sen. Libous, 61, of Birmingham was charged with lying to federal agents, while his son was charged with filing false tax returns.

Libous, who first won a seat in the Senate in 1988, is the chamber’s second-highest-ranking Republican and is considered a powerbroker in politics.

Libous denied any wrongdoing.

“I am innocent from all these charges,” Libous said. “It’s very disappointing and we are going to fight them.”
