Chaos erupted in the courtroom as Judge Patrick Dinkelacker executed the jail sentence Monday for former Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter.

Hunter was sentenced to six months minus one day in the Hamilton County Justice Center. She was also given one year of community control.

 

Last week, an appeals court rejected her request for a stay, returning the case to Hamilton County.

Hunter was convicted in 2014 of unlawful interest in a public contract, a felony.

She was accused of giving confidential records to her brother, a juvenile court employee who was in the process of being fired.

In court Monday morning, Judge Dinkelacker read a letter from Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters that stated Hunter has “never once shown remorse” and he “believes she has some sort of medical condition.” Deters suggested she receive a medical evaluation.

Hunter’s attorney, David Singleton, said he didn’t think asking for the evaluation was appropriate.
