Judge Rules That Run for Office Violates Probation

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP)- A judge has ruled that a political consultant convicted in a robocall conspiracy violated his probation by filing to run for state Senate.

Baltimore Circuit Court Judge Emanuel Brown ruled on Thursday that Julius Henson must serve four months for the probation violation. Brown suspended his order for 30 days so Henson can appeal.

Henson filed to run for a Baltimore state Senate seat on Feb. 20. He served a 30-day jail term in 2012 after being convicted of conspiracy for the robocalls made on Election Day in 2010. He was also sentenced to three years of probation.

Prosecutors had alleged that the robocalls, made to about 110,000 Democratic voters in Baltimore and Prince George's County, were aimed at keeping black voters from the polls during Maryland's gubernatorial election.
