The Ohio Supreme Court decided not to review suspended Judge Tracie Hunter’s felony conviction.
In 2014, the Hamilton County Juvenile Court judge was found guilty of having an unlawful interest in a public contract.
The court ruled on Wednesday to deny Hunter’s appeal.
Hunter was sentenced to six months in prison, but she has yet to serve time due to the appeal process. Now that it’s over, a new sentencing hearing is set for Friday at 10 a.m.
After a five week trial in October of 2014, Hunter was found guilty on one of the nine felony charges against her.
She was convicted of giving confidential court documents to her brother, who was under investigation for a jailhouse fight.
