Political insider and candidate for state senate Julius Henson on Thursday was ordered to spend four months in jail, for violating terms of his probation. He has 30 days to appeal.
Henson said he will still run for office since his probation is now closed as a result of Thursday's ruling.
In 2012 Henson was convicted of violating election laws for not including an "authority tag" on a robocall to Maryland voters in key democratic strongholds, urging them not to vote. Henson served 30 days in jail.
Though Henson has formally announced his candidacy for the state senate seat currently held by Nathanial McFadden, probation documents obtained by FOX45 state that Henson was ordered to "not work in any political campaign paid/volunteer during probation" for a three year period starting on June 13, 2012.
Henson is a Maryland State Senate candidate for Baltimore City's 45th District
