BALTIMORE (AP) — A jury has found a Republican campaign consultant guilty of conspiracy for 2010 robocalls that prosecutors say were aimed at keeping black voters from the polls during Maryland’s 2010 gubernatorial election.
The jury considering the case of Julius Henson, who worked for Republican former Gov. Robert Ehrlich’s campaign during his rematch with Democratic Gov. Martin O’Malley, handed up the verdict Friday after deliberating for three days.
Henson was acquitted of three other charges.
