Julius Henson back in court for filing to run for office

BALTIMORE - Political consultant Julius Henson says he isn't backing down - despite a ruling from a judge.

A judge sentenced Henson to four months in prison - saying he violated his parole by filing to run for the State Senate.

But Henson vowed to continue his campaign for the seat.

The judge suspended the sentence for 30 days, and Henson says he will appeal.

He served a 30 day prison sentence in 2012, after he was convicted in a robocall scandal on election day in 2010. He was also sentenced to three years of probation.

Prosecutors claimed the calls, made to about 110,000 Democratic voters in Baltimore and Prince George's Counties, were aimed at keeping black voters from the polls during Maryland's gubernatorial election.
