Bond is revoked for sheriff’s son
Bond for Darlington County Sheriff James Hudson’s son, who was arrested last year on a charge of attempted murder, has been revoked and he has returned to jail. The sheriff himself initiated the process of revoking bond for his son, Jordan Hudson, according to a statement issued by the Darlington County Sheriff’s Office. “The sheriff himself, being a strong advocate of bond stipulations and conditions, felt that Jordan Hudson was not abiding by his conditions of bond as he should, which resulted in Sheriff Hudson himself initiating the revocation of his bond,” the statement said. The sheriff declined to elaborate on the statement except to say, “Jordan has a lawyer. A right to due process.” Darlington County jail records indicate that Jordan Hudson was booked into the jail June 27, but without any new charges filed against him. The younger Hudson has since been moved to a detention center in a neighboring county, reportedly Dillon County. In August 2020, three months before Hudson was elected sheriff, Jordan Hudson was charged with shooting a person in the back during a fight.
