CINCINNATI: The second trial for a Cincinnati-area juvenile court judge convicted of unlawful interest in a public contract has been pushed back to September.
Hamilton County Judge Tracie Hunter’s second trial was scheduled to begin June 1, but a judge on Wednesday delayed it to Sept. 8. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports special prosecutors sought the extension citing “frivolous motions” filed by Hunter that they say put the case in limbo.
Hunter was convicted last year and sentenced to six months in jail. She remains free during her appeal.
Hunter pleaded not guilty to the charges that include tampering with evidence and theft in office. The charges against her now include eight counts that left the first jury deadlocked.
