5 years after sentencing, former judge Tracie Hunter could go to jail after federal ruling

Five years after it was imposed, former Hamilton County judge Tracie Hunter's six-month jail sentence can go forward, a federal judge has ruled.

In a decision filed Wednesday in federal court in Cincinnati, U.S. District Judge Timothy Black found that Hunter received a fair trial in 2014.

"Whether a six-month jail sentence is warranted is not for this court to decide," Black said in a 26-page decision. "Only the state court can impose or amend a sentence for a state court conviction."

Hunter's case is before Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Patrick Dinkelacker. He took over after Norbert Nadel, who oversaw the trial and initially sentenced her, retired.

1. She may have done things any number of Republicans have done, but she broke the law ...

ans she needs to pay the price.

We aren't them and we don't used rationalized excuses, particularly "they did it, too!"

We're better than that. And so is this Judge. They were out to get her and she did something that couldn't and didn't get missed. I wish she were still on the bench.
