Ex-con arrested for threatening federal judge

    Chief District Judge Susan Oki Mollway

The FBI says Honolulu police arrested a 54-year-old man in Waikiki on Friday afternoon on a federal warrant for threatening a U.S. District judge.

Federal prosecutors filed a criminal complaint against Julius D. Hudson on Friday morning.

The complaint alleges that Hudson identified himself in a voice message he left on U.S. Chief Judge Susan Oki Mollway’s telephone Thursday threatening to “blow (her) brains out.”

According to federal court records, Mollway sentenced Hudson in 2003 to 27 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release for auto theft and three counts of burglary.

The FBI says that at various times after completing his sentence, Hudson has made calls to Mollway and his former probation officer. 

Last April, the FBI says, the U.S. Marshals Service talked to Hudson at his home in Texas. At that time Hudson agreed to stop harassing Mollway and the probation officer. Later that same day, the FBI says, Hudson left a message for the probation officer.

Then starting last month, the FBI says, Hudson left messages telling Mollway that he was returning to Hawaii.
