A former Ohio Juvenile Court judge got a prison sentence that shocked her supporters too where shouting and an arrest took place in a Cincinnati courtroom.

Tracie Hunter, as reported by Cleveland’s WOIO 19 News and Cincinnati’s WXIX Fox19 Now, “was sentenced to six months minus one day in the Hamilton County Justice Center. She was also given one year of community control.”

She was sentenced for giving records to her brother, who was also employed at the same Juvenile center she was employed at.

Hunter reacted as she was “limp” in this tweet and video below:

A prosecutor requested an evaluation for Hunter, though that was denied.  Hunter’s attorney also wanted a stay, which was also denied.

Judge Patrick Dinkelacker also took time to address Hunter’s supporters and the postcards and letters they sent him.  Here is his reaction below.

Needless to say, the crowd were livid when Hunter got that six-month jail sentence, taking their anger following the hearing inside and outside of the courtroom.
