COLUMBUS, OH (FOX19) -

The Ohio Supreme Court has assigned retired and former Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Thomas Lipps to hear cases for indicted Judge Tracie Hunter.

A Hamilton County grand jury on Friday indicted Hunter on eight charges.

The charges are two counts of tampering with evidence, two counts of forgery, two counts of having an unlawful interest in a public contract and two counts of theft in office.

Hunter is scheduled to be arraigned Friday in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.

Lipps presided over the Steubenville rape trial in March 2013.
