Brown County white supremacist gets 7 years for assault, gun charge


BROWNWOOD, Texas - A man affiliated with the Aryan Brotherhood took a plea deal Tuesday to serve seven years in jail ahead of a declared mistrial.

Bobby Jo Dudley, 38, was scheduled to go on trial before Brown County District Court Judge Stephen Ellis Tuesday. He was facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and unlawful possession of a firearm, according to court documents.

Before the trial started, Ellis was notified that a juror lived outside the county disqualifying him from participating.

Then as Assistant District Attorney Christina Moss gave her opening statements, a juror began to vomit, according to the district judge's office. The person was sent to the doctor.

Ellis was going to declare a mistrial, but Dudley agreed with the prosecutor to plead guilty and serve seven years in prison for both charges.
