BALTIMORE (WMAR) - Political consultant Julius Henson has been released from prison earlier than expected due to his mother's condition.
Henson's attorney Edward Smith, Jr., says he filed a motion earlier this week for his release to see his dying mother, who he says may only have about 10 days to live.
In June, Henson was sentenced to two months in prison in connection with the controversial robocalls that went out to Marylanders on Election night.
Henson was also sentenced to three years of probation and 300 hours of community service, which he will still have to fulfill, said Smith, but he will not be returning to prison.
Smith says he filed an appeal for the sentence following the conviction, but that appeal is about a year away from being heard.
