The Greater Cincinnati Chapter of the National Action Network, a civil rights organization founded by Reverend Al Sharpton, held a meeting this morning dedicated to Hunter's defense.
Hunter is facing allegations that she committed eight felony crimes, charges Bishop Bobby Hilton, longtime Hunter advocate, say were brought about unjustly.
"People have been after her and we know now there's no level, there's no low that they won't stoop to get her out of juvenile court," Bishop Hilton said to the crowd of supporters at the gathering, held at his World of Deliverance Ministries.
Donations were being collected to go towards Hunter's legal defense fund at the event where attendees were invited to the podium to voice their support.
"There's more than one side of the story, there's more than two sides of the story so our goal is to have the entire story brought out and not just one side of the story," said Don Wagoner.
Hunter was in attendance but remained seated in the audience and did not speak.
Hunter is disqualified from serving as judge while her case is pending. She is still being paid her $121,350 annual salary during the suspension. She will be arraigned next Friday in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.
