BALTIMORE (WJZ)– Political consultant Julius Henson has been released from jail a month earlier than expected. Sources say he was released to visit his ailing mother.

Henson’s attorney filed a motion this week requesting Henson’s immediate release so that he could visit his sick mother before she dies.

Henson is convicted of conspiracy to violate election law in connection with controversial robocalls that went to Maryland voters on Election Night 2010.

In June, Henson was sentenced to two months in prison and convicted of one misdemeanor count, while his co-defendant Paul Schurick–convicted of much more serious charges in his robocall trial–was given a 30-day sentence of home detention.

In an exclusive interview with WJZ that aired just one day before his sentencing, Henson’s remarks aggravated state prosecutors, who said he showed no signs of remorse for what they considered an obvious attempt at voter suppression.

Because of that interview, prosecutors asked the judge to give Henson an even harsher punishment.
