Former Judge Tracie Hunter Released From Jail, Vows to Fight On

Former Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge, Tracie Hunter, who earned her undergraduate degree from Miami University in 1988 and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Cincinnati College of Law in 1992, is released after serving three months of a six-month sentence

Tracie Hunter, the first African American juvenile court judge in Hamilton County history, is free again after serving nearly three months of a six-month jail sentence following her conviction on charges of unlawful interest in a public contract. She was found guilty of helping her brother keep his county job by mishandling a confidential document.

In July, Hunter was dragged off to prison after going limp in the courtroom while demonstrators protested her incarceration.

As news broadcasts showed a sheriff’s deputy dragging the former judge away, Hunter told NNPA Newswire that she mostly blacked out.

“As I previously shared with [The Black Press], I had very extensive injuries from an accident. I had a metal rod in my back, and it limits my mobility,” Hunter explained.

“Then, after the judge imposed the sentence, there was so much commotion, and I and my attorney both were hit in the back of our heads. At that point, everything became a blur. The next thing I knew, I was being dragged across the courtroom floor,” Hunter stated.

Once behind bars, things only got worse.

Hunter said her health began to decline, guards mistreated her regularly, and regular showers were denied.

Guards also searched her small cell often, and without cause, Hunter stated.

“I was treated horribly by the guards. They talked to me in cruel and disrespectful ways,” she noted. “They searched my cell all of the time, and often I’d be the only person they’d search. On one occasion, they went to the room next to me and told the people there to pretend they were searching that room, but they were searching my room.”

During one of the searches, Hunter alleges that prison guards entered her cell and “absolutely tore it apart.”

“One time, they said they were searching for drugs, and what’s odd is that they know I have never done drugs, and I don’t drink. But there were others in there because of drugs, and they didn’t search them for drugs,” Hunter stated.

The only thing guards ever confiscated from Hunter were writing pens, which she believed was within her rights to possess.

Worse, Hunter stated that she would routinely be on lockdown, once for as long as 25 consecutive hours. Rarely did she eat because she feared guards might have poisoned her food.

“They’d bring me my food, but I wasn’t going to eat it because they had treated me so viciously. They were handling my food, so I thought it might have been poisoned,” Hunter stated.

Jail nurses would provide Hunter apples and Gatorade to help keep her from starvation and dehydration, she said.

“Mistreatment was going on daily. Most of the time, I was freezing cold, and I wore like five shirts every day, around the clock,” Hunter noted.

Hunter, who earned her undergraduate degree from Miami University in 1988 and her Juris Doctorate from the University of Cincinnati College of Law in 1992, won the election in 2010.

She stunned the Republican-heavy city by defeating GOP contender John Williams.

Williams and the GOP contested Hunter’s victory, and a heated court battle ensued.

After numerous appeals by the Hamilton County Board of Elections, officials refused to count more than 800 votes from majority Democrat and Black precincts.

Hunter then filed a federal lawsuit to have those votes counted.

While the court finally ordered the count, election officials still certified Williams as the victor.

Eventually, the election was overturned in Hunter’s favor.

The 18-month period proved pivotal because of then-Gov. John Kasich appointment of Williams to the bench.

The state Supreme Court changed the rules giving Williams administrative authority over the court.

As the senior judge and the only one elected, Hunter would have received the position of the administrative judge.

Still, Hunter worked behind the bench to protect the rights of children, including refusing to allow their names and faces to appear in news coverage.

Among other things, she instilled a system that focused on rehabilitation instead of incarceration.

Hunter mandated prosecutors turn over all critical evidence to defense lawyers.

She forced the juvenile court to change its entire reporting system and outlawed the routine shackling of juveniles in her courtroom.

Hunter also received credit for exposing juvenile case statistics, which were being inaccurately reported and falsified to the Ohio Supreme Court.

She hired African Americans in key positions, reduced default judgments, and spearheaded the change of state election laws, which paved the way for ex-felons to vote.

However, the Cincinnati Enquirer and WCPO Television joined Republican county officials in the prosecutors’ and commissioners’ offices in lawsuits challenging Hunter.

“They filed 30 lawsuits in less than nine months that I was on the bench,” Hunter said.

After serving just 18 months, her enemies found a way to silence her and end her career.

Prosecutors alleged that Hunter used her judicial credit card to appeal the lawsuits filed against her by Deters, the prosecutor.

She was sentenced in July and began serving six months. The court reduced the sentence after she agreed to minister to inmates in the jail.

Hunter walked out of jail on Saturday, Oct. 5 but her legal and personal battles are far from over. “I’m continuing to fight this wrongful conviction until it’s overturned,” Hunter stated.

“I committed no crime. All of this was a vindictive, vicious, and retaliatory attack against me because I had the audacity to run for one of the most powerful positions in Hamilton County. I had the audacity to win. I had the audacity to sue the board of elections to prove that I won. They were forced by a federal court to overturn the original elections results against my opponent, who was appointed by the governor.”

Hunter continued:

“The first African American to serve on the juvenile court of Hamilton County, and you become a political prisoner who was treated horribly. Our community in Cincinnati has always been divided by race, politics, religion, and social economics. I will never apologize for something I did not do. They want me to apologize for dividing a community that was already divided. And, I’m certainly not going to apologize to a sheriff’s deputy who dragged me on the floor like a piece of trash for the entire world to see. That was demoralizing, dehumanizing, and degrading. And, on top of that, it was an African American woman whom they put up to doing that.”

    Wow. I just recently learned of this story. I didnt even know who the Honorable Judge Tracie Hunter (and, I still consider her honorable) was! However, after stumbling upon the court proceeding of the sentencing hearing 2019, I have since read every article, and watched every interview pertaining to Judge Hunrwr. I am praying for this sister. I applaud her for her contributions, and pray for her full vindication, and restoration of law license! It’s a travesty of justice. I hate to pull the race card. But, history has proven time and time again, had this been a white woman, these allegations would not have risen to this level. Not, by a longshot! I believe (based on what I know of the case), that she is innocent, and her fight will eventually lead to her being cleared of these charges!

        i dont know why but it seems that when a black person is on trial regardless of how strong the evidence other black people rally around and support them ..its wrong..If you did wrong you should be convicted…She knew what she was doing I do however think that the judge should not have read those letters he received from her supporters…i dont think that was appropriate …And if those guards mistreated her ,and they probably did shame on them ughhhhh

            If they don’t like you, they will either find or fabricate a reason to put you in jail. Why was a complete vote count not allowed for Judge candidate Hunter? How do you even call that democracy? It is more like soviet style democracy. As Stalin said, it makes no difference who votes, it is those who count the votes that matters.
            They could not keep her out to begin with, so they found another way to get her out. It is that simple. And yes racism is quite alive and well in America. Most Americans don’t see it because they think that behavior to be normal. I Have seen Trumper chumps illegally collect welfare and disability benefits, while still working under the table. Yet these very same people demonize blacks for being on welfare, lazy no goods…the reason why the taxes are high, as if illagaly collecting benefits was a whites only privilege. The fact is there are more able bodied whites collecting welfare and disability benefits than blacks.



      • Justice for judge hunter on January 14, 2020 at 10:17 am

        This miscarriage of justice cost the extremely honourable judge hunter 3 months of her life in horrible conditions inside of a prison where she was persecuted mercilessly and why? Because she had the guts to stand up to the racist, white entitled republicans who would relentlessly attack her. She made incredible changes to the corrupt justice system such as her advocation for the identities of children to not be revealed and for juveniles to not be shackled in court. When she was humiliatingly dragged from the court room like an animal, it wasn’t because of her reluctance to go, it was because of her medical state and also from a blow that she suffered, she isn’t a coward, the sherif made her look weak. She is a hero who once again (and there has been an evident pattern of instances alike) was taken down for being brave, for trying to change America for the better one state at a time. She has emerged early from prison not because she bribed anyone or annoyed the sherif into letting her go, she did it by helping others. And now she is still battling her wrongful prosecution and won’t stop until she gets the vindication that she so obviously deserves. If you see her as anything less than a victim of fascism but also a role model, you are seriously delusional.

          Had she walked out like an adult she wouldn’t had been dragged from the court room like an animal as you put it. Shame on her. Don’t break the law and you won’t be putting yourself in horrible conditions it’s that simple. I’m sure she drove them crazy while she in prison because her action in the courtroom shows she was gonna be nothing but a problem the whole time. They couldn’t wait to get rid of her.

            No matter what was the motive on both ends . You should never break the law . 13 years ago I came home from a war . While I was gone fighting for our country my Mother had remarried and her new husband was for Egyptian Muslim faith . Basically he hated me just because of my orders as being over in Afghanistan fighting .ill make a short . My mom and her new husband left to the beach for a day . I gott up early noticing that they where gone .decide to go get breakfast but my mother’s new husband car was blocking mine . I decide to go upstairs look for he’s keys and move the car . While I was moving he’s car I just decided to take he’s car to get breakfast and be back in 20 tp 30 minutes , why not , no harm done , big deal , well it was a big deal . While I was gone they had come back to get something they forgotten , while I was gone the new Muslim husband called the police right away . So when I arrived back the police 👮‍♀️ arrested me , even though I had the keys ,Now you tell me if that was fair .Even when I try to explain to the Police Officer , he didn’t even give a shoot and arrested me , just so to get a color under him . I spend 28 days in jail . It thought me one lesson . No matter what you think is right or wrong others don’t few the same way you do or did , my point is , please be careful out there . There are plenty of evil people just looking for trouble or make a career out of nothing that became something. One day we will all be together living in harmony and that’s the only promise I cane make to all . Love ❤️ one another and everything else will fall into its natural order , without love we have nothing . Peace



          • Peter the Great on March 4, 2020 at 9:45 am

            No matter what . Yes it’s hardener for black people to get higher end positions . If it’s harder than you should be even better in what you do and be honest and good person . Share got caught that’s all she wrote . If there was a white judge 👩‍⚖️ that got in that situation than yes probably it would have never gotten that far .We all make mistakes but in her situation that’s a little different, your a flowing Judge , WOW . You suppose to protect the law not abuse it .



        • Tim Clarke on March 1, 2020 at 4:46 pm

          Hi everyone, I am a white, British Christian. My wife is an Afro Caribbean British citizen and qualified attorney who looks similar to Tracie Hunter. We watched a video about this case and followed up with more research. I feel a lot of empathy for Tracie, not only because she resembles my wife but because the facts in this case look to me a lot like the facts put before a lynching mob. It is blindingly obvious this whole thing was a vindictive set up to take revenge for the audacity of a black female lawyer and judge, pastor and democrat, to think she could take the place of an entitled white republican who sounds a lot like some kind of a freemason to me. The people who did this will pay ultimately, they will be found out. Why? because they have gotten away with it once and will try it again until they will get caught. Reminds me a lot of that Morgan Freeman movie about a jail, Redemption something or other.
          May God Bless you sister, you are a beautiful, sincere, righteous and well meaning person and you deserve an official apology and recompense for all that you have been through. I wish I could meet you and shake your hand. Your courage is inspiring.

          What? I am British and your nation never belonged to us. Christopher Columbus and the Spanish Conquistadors stole, murdered, raped and settled their way to ownership of your lands from the indigenous natives. European settlers followed, including some British military and traders who tried to rob the furs and resources of your great land, ultimately unsuccessfully, because fortunately you got together and kicked the British out. But what have you done with your promised land? You became farmers and plantation owners who took African slaves. Those slaves were eventually emancipated and made free men who then fought for your nation in many subsequent and current war zones. Black or white, all American citizens, every last one of you, has inherited a common history of plunder and violence and you are all living on stolen property. You think you can trample on anyone anywhere on earth by force and inflict your desire and will on others. But in your midst you harbour this festering wound of racism and disrespect of human dignity. You need to take a long hard look at yourselves, you need to admit that your gun laws are inappropriate and not fit for purpose today, you need to admit that the world is in pain from human inflicted climate change, what the Australians rightly call climate emergency. You need to man up and link arms and stick together to rescue civilisation from itself. This case is a mere hint at the social sickness running beneath the surface in America. It was never truly great because it was never greatly true. Truth leads to greatness, nothing else.

          • Send Hunter Back on March 3, 2020 at 10:06 am

            Maybe you should stick to fish and chips instead of American politics. Wound of racism? What are you even talking about? Nothing about this case has to do with race except for the peanut gallery’s unfounded claims of racism. If something has nothing to do with race, and people make it about race, who’s the racist?

      You know. When your black and trail blazing, you have to know that there is a chance that you will be targeted for everything that you do; and so you must … MUST do everything by the book. Don’t worry about when they catch you with your hand in the cookie jar that they would have treated a white person differently. Don’t put your hand in that Jar. You can’t afford to. Yes she had a hard time getting what was rightfully hers, and she still didn’t get there in the end. But she broke the rules in a big way; and if you’ve read everything pertaining to this case you’ll know that. Forget if she’s a sister or not. She messed up big style. She won’t be cleared; she’s as guilty as sin and the system has proved that. Face facts. She’s flawed. She was STUPID with a capital ‘S’ and that’s the end of her judicial career. Believe me.

      • Phillip Freneau on March 7, 2020 at 12:10 pm

        Mr. Hines’ succinct analysis of the state of affairs is humbling and makes the truth plain to see.

        I came to the bottom of this article thinking “It’s all true”. She did, on paper, break the letter of the law. Guilty. But It’s obvious she is being held to a different standard. And that different standard was applied long before she put her hand in the cookie jar. Look as evidence to the State’s bending (if not breaking) of the law without penalty in order to disenfranchise her lawful election as a judge only to bend the law back in order to strictly penalize her.

        As Americans, I feel we are all obligated to ask why these different standards were applied. After all, the unequal application of standards to people based on their racial differences is literally the definition of racism. So, did this happen because she is black? Did it happen because she is viewed as too activist, driven, and defiant? Ahh… therein lies the rub: She’s all of the above.

        I hope we can all ask ourselves what triggered the powers-that-be and drove this chain of events. Could it be that she was viewed as arrogant, dare I say uppity? It doesn’t take a genius to see racism. To see the unequal application of standards and what triggers it.

        And if one can’t see the vindictive theatrics of the court trying to goad her into the indignity of submitting herself for a psychological exam prior to sentencing, or encouraging her to plead for mercy in front of the very institution that tried to rob her of her rightful election, then you are blind to the sinister that resides among us, and within us all. We might not be able to change the hatred, fear, shame, ignorance, cowardice, etc. that is out there in this world but we can certainly look within. We drive our brain people, not the other way around.

        And so Mr Hines, despite your advice, I do worry about our inability as Americans regardless of our ethnicity to open our eyes, minds, and hearts. It comes at no cost yet the rewards would be immense.

      I believe and I truly believe this, she was treated so horribly because she is a smart, progressive, gifted and black woman. She was making a difference, a good difference, showing the white males she could run the ship, being in awe and jealous of this pretty and smart black woman, caused the white men much discontent. They had to stop her, so finally they blew up the said incident of her supplying her brother with information, to help the brother keep his job. A mole hill became a mountain and they took the honoarable judge through court hell. She served 3 months and now is out of jail, I pray she continues her great work, she only lost that battle, but she still has the opportunity to win the war. I will pray for her constantly.

        Facts don’t care about your feelings.

    “Three Indiana judges involved in a Downtown Indianapolis fight in May.”

    “Adams’ whole blood alcohol level was approximately 0.157 upon admission to the hospital, and Jacobs’ was approximately 0.13, according to the opinion. Bell’s blood alcohol level was not tested, “but she was intoxicated enough that she lacks any memory of the incident,” per the opinion.”

    “Adams, who was the only judge criminally charged in the case, pleaded guilty to one count of misdemeanor battery in September. He received a sentence of 365 days in jail, a credit for two days served. The remaining 363 days of the sentence were suspended, meaning Adams served no additional jail time.”

    “All three judges received suspensions, but will eventually return to their offices.”

    Please confine ignorance to it’s respective bubble. These two incidents reveal undeniable bias.

      Amen. It was for the judges and I know they were white.

    I don’t get it. If she wasn’t guilty, how did her brother end up with the documents in his possession? Did he ever get interviewed and deny she gave them to him? I don’t get it.

  6. That’s crap. She broke the law plain and simple! on December 14, 2019 at 8:07 am

    She’s a crook. She got caught and holds herself above the law. She needs to go start a new life and stay out of law.

      Most caucasian folk have never had to worry about being discriminated against , so they don’t have a need to even begin to understand the plight of injustice . And because this country was taken over by barbaric English illiterate drunks , it’s no surprise that injustice is inherent. Just as they took this land from the original Americans , their blood thirsty and injustice manor is in their DNA. They can’t help themselves. The constitution say that this is one nation under God. I’d like to know what god they are talking about? I pray for all the people who have authority over us because this is the will of THE HEAVENLY FATHER. I thank God for wisdom. Owe no man anything except to Love him. “Vengeance is mine say’s The Lord” “I shall repay” All you people in this country treating people with unjust better get it together. White, black , yellow, red. What ever you call yourselves: Repent for the kingdom of God at hand. There shall be great weeping and gnashing of teeth.

        Another “victim” carrying the victim cross. Do people like you ever get tired of blaming everyone for your problems? At what point do you take responsibility for you actions? There is no systemic racism like you claim in other words. If there was, Obama wouldn’t have been elected to the white house, twice! There would be no Oprah, no JayZ and no Clarence Thomas in the Supreme Court.
        Are there racist people out there? Yes! And they would always exist. But the existence of racist people doesn’t equate to a racist country, were you have all the same right and opportunities as everyone else. People that only think or racism, only see racism.

      • Owen C. Hines on February 16, 2020 at 10:45 am

        Wow .. another victim.

        What about Fat caucasians, you can bet they’ve faced discrimination.
        What about Lesbian caucasians, you can bet they’ve faced discrimination.
        What about Gay caucasians, you can bet they’ve faced discrimination.
        What about Trump supporting caucasians, you can bet they’ve faced discrimination.
        What about Homeless caucasians, you can bet they’ve faced discrimination.
        What about Poor Drug abusing caucasians, you can bet they’ve faced discrimination.
        What about caucasians living in predominantly black neighbourhoods, you can bet they’ve faced discrimination.

        and the list goes on ….
        You have no idea.
        You are just another black person; probably an underachiever living under the safe umbrella of victimhood,
        and blaming that on all your woe’s …. How unfortunate.

    She is black and a Democrat with progressive ideas, they are white, Republican, racist and regressive, soon as she won the election over a Republican her card was marked, no need to say more! More power to her.

    • Randy Litton on January 1, 2020 at 10:44 am

      Amen. Why is this so hard for people to understand?

    • Daniel on January 22, 2020 at 12:14 pm

      Republicans are racist and regressive? Do you not know that it was the democrats that started the KKK? It was the democrats that fought to KEEP racist laws in the south. The only reason democrats accuse republicans of racism is because they’re trying to erase their history of racism.
      And regressive policies is one of the things democrats are pushing for. You don’t think that fighting to take constitutional rights from you is regressive? Then you must be a proud democrat. You don’t think that decriminalizing petty theft (San Francisco) is regressive? You don’t think that allowing millions of foreigners to come here at will is regressive? Democrats only way to get sheep like you to vote for them is to offer free stuff (paid by the gov) or appeal to some moral ground, regardless of how damaging that moral ground would be to the economy. Like AOC said, “some people are more concerned on being factually correct, than being morally correct.” Yeah, that is what democrats are pushing for, morally correct policies. Forget the economy, right?

      • She should have served a whole six months on February 15, 2020 at 3:28 pm

        Poetic Justice at its best. She should have served the entire 6 months.

    • Owen C. Hines on February 16, 2020 at 10:48 am

      So why was it sooooo hard for her to simply keep her nose clean and not do anything wrong ?.
      She marked her cards. HER ACTIONS LED TO HER LOSING HER JOB AND BEING IMPRISONED.

      She has let you down. She has let all of us down.
      Face that fact and move on.

  8. Rose k on February 20, 2020 at 3:39 pm

    Her eyes were wide open and aware as she so obviously planned the dragging out of the courtroom to raise pity from viewers. I, for one, refuse to fall for her selfish behavior tactics. Remember, if you can’t do the time, don’t commit the crime. She got caught. Yay.

  9. Janet Sharpley on February 27, 2020 at 8:27 pm

    My, she is an expert with the victim card. I am sick of hearing from the nepotistic convicted filth.

  10. Kristopher on March 5, 2020 at 2:54 am

    She said she was framed, and I believe her.
    You folks can believe what you want , however she will have my support.
    My support will outway your non support…your energy hating her is only fuel for the motivated.

  11. Informed Citzen on March 11, 2020 at 4:10 am

    This is might as well be Fox News….., she was treated 10,000x times better than any of us would have been treated. But the stunts of “going limb”, Bring the phone to record the judge with a cellphone after she denied her right to speak? Idk if anyone has been to court but that would get us thrown out, if she just barely smiled they would have giving her a slap on the wrist but she brought the drama with her and sadly for her but she needs the lord watching her, The verdict wasn’t even a debate, the judge wasn’t even in his powers to overturn a case that was finished. We would get thrown in, not high price lawyers, she may have earned that extra ‘priveledge’ as she did a lot of great things. But she was a roll model, the childish tunts and sleazy tactics her legal team used made me wonder if she had lost it. She was too smart and knew the law to deny the right to speak and then say you got embarrassed, when someone charges the court its in the best interest to get her out first so safety, as they do with the defense/ prosecution sides, she went limb and made it dangerous for herself and others. As a parent, hard to explain that behavior to what she thought was role model.

    It seems like blacks always scream discrimination when they break the law. Too many of them pull the race card. However, when they are in power, they are very likely to cover up the crimes of blacks and come down unfairly on white people. Perhaps if they learnt to act civilised and practised what they constantly screaming against, perhaps people would have more respect for them.

  13. Lori Bella on March 17, 2020 at 5:15 pm

    I believe she behaved badly and had to pay for it. Why do people want to diminish what other black people have gone through over the years by associating those struggles with what Hunter’s situation was? Black people owe no explanation for what she did.

    Which was not the worst crime in the world. However, her refusal to acknowledge her mistakes points to a more serious flaw in her character. She does seem to have some issues that she needs help with. Maybe she can’t be a judge. But she can be a lot of things if she does the mental and emotional work needed to get to a better psychological state.

    I remember in 1995 when the verdict of the O J Simpson trial was broadcast live . I was working on a roof in a cul-de-sac in Greenwich Connecticut .The house next-door was being renovated and there was five or six African-American Mason’s working on the Stonewall.When the verdict was announced they started cheering and high-fiving, me and the one other guy on the roof (Both white) we’re shocked at the verdict ,And also shocked that these guys really thought he was innocent.Later that night while listening to sports talk radio the host Steve Summers said something that will stick in my mind forever and I quote (it just shows you how divided the races still are )and when I heard him say that all of a sudden everything made sense sometimes you have to look at the other persons side of things .Peace and love to all of you and I believe Miss Hunter is a woman of God and she made a mistake.
