CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Embattled Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter was in court Thursday for a pre-trial hearing where her attorneys sought to quash a subpoena requested by special prosecutors.

Hunter instead stood up during the hearing, saying she was acting as her own co-counsel, and lashed out at special prosecutors for what she referred to as a "disparagement of (her) name" when prosecutors Merlyn Shiverdecker and R. Scott Croswell III claimed that Hunter was "gaming the system" by not providing documents during discovery.

"It appears I cannot get a fair trial in Hamilton County," said Hunter.

Judge Norbert Nadel, who is presiding over the case, tried repeatedly to calm Hunter down.

Hunter has been indicted and pleaded not guilty to nine felony counts that include accusations that she backdated court documents and used made fraudulent charges to a county credit card. If convicted, she faces a maximum sentence if 13 years in prison.

The trial is set to begin Sept. 8.
