After a judge sentenced another judge to jail time, chaos erupted in an Ohio courtroom and the defendant had to be dragged out. Former Cincinnati Judge Tracie Hunter was convicted in 2014 of misusing her position as a judge to help her brother. She was sentenced to six months in jail and has been appealing the ruling ever since. The case has drawn outrage from the African American community, who say Hunter is being treated unfairly.
According to NBC News, the former judge is under fire for helping her brother, Stephen Hunter. Hunter "worked as a youth corrections officer. Stephen Hunter allegedly struck a young offender on the job on July 7, 2013, leading to the officer's boss to recommend his firing. Tracie Hunter improperly demanded and received documents about the teen and passed them on to her brother, prosecutors said."
