Jail Cell

Julie Hudson was detained for seven days in Pennsylvania by a Texas officer who thought she was a robbery suspect. Hudson was a Holy Family University doctoral candidate. She had been informed she had an outstanding warrant and that she was not eligible for a job. Hudson went to the police to inquire why she was being held on a Texas warrant. This is a state she’s never visited before. It took seven days for Webster police to realize she wasn’t who they wanted. Why did they believe she was? They had been told that the woman they were seeking was Julie Hudson. They discovered her photos via social media and determined that she was the woman seen in the surveillance video.
