Julius Henson to pay over $1M for election robocalls
BALTIMORE (AP) - A U.S. District Court judge has ordered Julius Henson, who was convicted of conspiracy for 2010 robocalls aimed at keeping black voters from the polls, to pay the state more than $1 million.
Attorney General Douglas Gansler announced Judge Catherine Blake's order Tuesday afternoon. The damages are for violations of the Telephone Consumer Protection.
Henson, his company Universal Elections Inc., and an employee, Rhonda Russell, who recorded the calls, must pay the damages.
Henson was convicted on May 11 of conspiring to not provide an authority line. He will be sentenced June 13.
