A Nacogdoches County judicial district judge slapped stringent bond conditions on the 59-year-old man who was arrested back in June for allegedly assaulting a Stephen F. Austin State University employee and taking the keys to his truck.
Judge Edward Klein of the 420th Judicial District Court issued the bond conditions for William “Willie” Charles Hudson, of Nacogdoches on Aug. 21. East Texas News obtained a copy of the bond conditions Tuesday.
Hudson was booked into the Nacogdoches County Jail on a second-degree felony robbery charge on June 17.
In addition to the usual conditions like Hudson being unable to own a firearm, he will be required to notify the court in writing within 48 hours of any employment status or address changes. He is also banned from interfering, tampering, or obstructing any surveillance device or camera that doesn't belong to him.
“Defendant shall not contact any law enforcement agency in Nacogdoches County, including but not limited to the Nacogdoches Police Department, and the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Office, unless the communication is necessary because of a life-threatening emergency, or to report a violent offense,” the order stated. “Defendant shall submit any other complaint that he may have in writing to his attorney of record, who may then take whatever that the attorney deems appropriate.”
Hudson is also not allowed to “confront, contact, or communicate” with anyone about downtown parking or fire lanes, according to the order.
The order also listed five people by name and said that Hudson isn't allowed to talk to them or their families in person or by written letters, e-mails, text, or telephone calls. Klein's order also stated that Hudson is not allowed to make contact with the employees, residents, or patrons of numerous downtown Nacogdoches businesses including Commercial Bank of Texas, the Law Offices of Adams, Belanger, Atherton, and LoStracco, Viper Security, Julia's Salon, Milfod's Barber Shop, Shelley's Bakery, all the other businesses bounded by East Hospital Street, North Mound Street, Main Street, and North Fredonia Street, and any business or building owned by his landlord.
The order also limits Hudson's travel on the downtown sidewalks to the immediate vicinity of his business.
According to the police report, the alleged robbery occurred at the Cole Art Center, which is located at 300 Commerce Street.
Sgt. Greg Sowell, a spokesman for the Nacogdoches Police Department, said an SFA employee was making a delivery at the back of the Cole Art Center said the man told police that Hudson struck him several times in the face and head and took his keys. The delivery driver had visible bruising to his face.
Hudson was arrested at the scene and transported to the Nacogdoches County Jail.
Business owners on North Church have filed either a restraining order or complaints against Hudson. According to Nacogdoches Police Chief Jim Sevey, if Hudson enters into any of the businesses, he will be charged with criminal trespass.
