New Bedford Man Sentenced in 2015 Stabbing

Gavel and scales

A 43-year-old New Bedford man convicted this week of brutally attacking and stabbing another man in late 2015 was sentenced to serve six to 10 years in state prison, Bristol County District Attorney Thomas M. Quinn III announced today.

Kevin Hudson was convicted after a jury trial on Thursday of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and assault and battery. The five-day trial took place in Fall River Superior Court, and the jury deliberated for about two hours before returning its verdicts.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Robert DiGiantomaso.

On December 9, 2015, New Bedford Police were dispatched to the area of Acushnet Avenue and Hathaway Street for a report of a stabbing.  Upon arrival, they found the victim being treated by fire personnel for a severe stab wound to his abdomen and a bite mark to his forehead. Witnesses at the scene told police that the suspect had approached the victim on the street and began attacking him with a hammer. When the victim got the hammer away from the defendant, he then pulled a knife and stabbed the victim several times.

The defendant then fled the scene, and was arrested in Boston in January, 2016.

During the course of the investigation it was determined that the defendant had been staying in the victim’s father’s home for about two weeks prior to the stabbing and had refused to pay the agreed upon rent. This argument resulted in the attack.

“I am very pleased with the jury’s verdict in this case.  This defendant is a career criminal who has already been convicted of stabbing someone else.  He had been staying at the victim’s father’s apartment for two weeks prior to the stabbing.  The defendant expressed his thanks by stabbing the victim’s son for no reason,” District Attorney Quinn said. “I am happy with the maximum ten year sentence imposed by Judge McGuire.  It was well-deserved. I would like to recognize Assistant District Attorney DiGiantomaso for his hard work on this case.”
