CINCINNATI: An embattled Ohio juvenile court judge has been indicted on eight felony charges, including tampering with evidence, theft in office and forgery.

The charges were handed down Friday in an indictment against Hamilton County Judge Tracie Hunter.

Hunter didn’t immediately return a message seeking comment Friday. Her first court date has been set for next Friday.

The charges stem in part from allegations by a county prosecutor that Hunter backdated at least two court records in “a conscious act of deception” to prevent some of her rulings from being appealed and possibly overturned.

Hunter also is accused of using her county-issued credit card to pay court fees stemming from lawsuits against her, and ordering that her brother — who used to provide security for the court — be paid overtime.
