Judge Hunter is the first African-American and first Democrat to become Juvenile Court Judge in Hamilton County’s 110-year history.  Hunter won her seat after a heated court battle and numerous appeals by the Hamilton County Board of Elections, which refused to count more than 800 votes from majority democrat and black precincts. Despite these votes being disqualified due to poll workers’ errors, a federal ruling ordered them to be counted, overturning the election in favor of Hunter.

Following her swearing-in, Hunter faced significant legal opposition, with over 30 lawsuits filed against her in less than nine months. She was ultimately falsely charged with 10 felonies, in a multimillion dollar conspiracy led by former Prosecutor Joseph T. Deters (who is now an Ohio Supreme Court Justice), and carried out by his relatives and cronies within the judiciary and throughout the court system. In October of 2014, Judge Hunter was convicted of a fourth degree felony by a fixed jury, composed of friends, neighbors, and close associates of Judge Hunters political foes.

Judge Hunter was sentenced to six months in jail, and served two and a half months, before her early release. She is still appealing the lone false conviction against her and is in need of legal representation from outside Cincinnati, who aren’t afraid to stand up against the status quo in Cincinnati. Although Judge Hunter’s case is the most egregious we’ve seen, what is happening to her is happening to black judges and prosecutors across the state of Ohio, and across the U.S. The removal of Black female judges sustains an unfair system that leads to mass incarceration of African Americans across the country.
