Henson, Convicted Of Robocalls, To Run For Office

Posted: Updated:

BALTIMORE (AP) - Julius Henson, who was convicted in a case involving robocalls on Election Day in 2010, says he is running for the General Assembly.
    
Henson said in an email Monday that he will run as a Democrat for senator in Baltimore's 45th District. Henson says he will formally file on Thursday.
    
Henson is running against Sen. Nathaniel McFadden, who has represented that district since 1995. Henson says the east Baltimore district is plagued by high unemployment and crime.
    
Henson served a 30-day jail term in 2012 after being convicted of conspiracy. 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.
