Felon accused of threatening judge who convicted him

Local News

A convicted felon is back behind bars, accused of threatening to kill the federal judge who sentenced him to prison more than a decade ago.

Julius D. Hudson, 54, of Waikiki was arrested by Honolulu police Friday afternoon on a federal arrest warrant for threatening a federal official. He was then turned over to FBI custody.

According to a criminal complaint, Hudson pleaded guilty to a four-count burglary indictment in December 2002.

He was sentenced to 27 months in prison and three years of supervised release by Honolulu U.S. District Court Judge Susan Oki Mollway.

Since then, authorities say he’s made several calls to Mollway, and even admitted to harassing the judge as well as his former probation officer.

Then, on Feb. 19, authorities say Hudson left a threatening voicemail message, the content of which was full of profanity and graphic violence, and ended with “I just threatened a judge, my name is Julius Hudson.”

“The FBI will work closely with our federal and local law enforcement partners to ensure that the integrity of the courts is not impeded by threats of violence,” said FBI special agent Tom Simon.

Hudson will be arraigned in District Court Monday.

If convicted, he faces a statutory maximum penalty of six years in prison.
