If Judas the betrayer had truly repented, would Jesus have accepted him? I believe so. No one can out-sin the grace of God. Judas may have saddened our Lord more by hanging himself than by betraying Him. I think his act of despair meant that he didn't believe our Lord would forgive Him. It is true in our present day. How many had hanged themselves than be covered by the forgiving mercy of God?

God Forgives. that is all i know, and no matter how deep situation we are in... betrayals, and all human errors.. God will forgive IF we do accept this sin and repent and totally turn away from it... killing oneself after repentance.. i think is totally a different issue... it is another act of guilt and when you are guilty of something, you still has not forgiven yourself, perhaps and might not be too sure if you repent already... i am really confused now. he he i guess only God knows

God is loving, forgiving, and merciful. when one accepts the Lord as his savior, he'd enter the kingdom of God. if judas repented and did this, then surely God would welcome him to heaven. anyway, i read of an interesting version about this before and i just want to share it to boggle your mind a bit :) it says, judas did not hang himself because of guilt but because of non-acceptance of his role as the betrayer. the story pointed out that someone must do that part to make what's written in the scripture happen, and judas just felt so bad he was the one chosen, thus, the infamous question "why me, Lord?".
