January 2014

Tracie Hunter, then a Hamilton County Juvenile Court judge, is indicted on multiple felony charges by a Hamilton County grand jury. Among the accusations: Hunter backdated documents to prevent prosecutors from appealing her decisions against them and improperly used her position as judge to give confidential documents to her brother, a juvenile court employee who was in the process of getting fired.

October 2014

A jury convicts Hunter of a single count related to giving confidential documents to her brother. Jurors are unable to agree on verdicts on the other eight counts she faces. The remaining charges are later dropped.


Dec. 5, 2014

Judge Norbert Nadel sentences Hunter to six months in jail.

Dec. 26, 2014

The Ohio Supreme Court allows Hunter to remain out of jail while she pursues appeals.

April 2015

Ohio Supreme Court Justice Chief Justice Maureen O'Connor denies Hunter's request to remove Judge Patrick Dinkelacker from the case.

September 2015

At a tense hearing before Dinkelacker, Hunter's attorney Clyde Bennett II says he can no longer represent her. Hunter then addresses Dinkelacker, listing reasons why he should disqualify himself from the case. She brings up a 2013 fatal crash involving the judge, whose car was one of two vehicles that struck a woman – who had high levels of cocaine in her system – who was in the middle of a city street. Dinkelacker tells her not to bring up the incident again, saying: “It’s inappropriate. It’s hurtful. And I think it’s spiteful.”

January 2016

A state appeals court decision upholds Hunter's conviction.

May 2016

A day before Dinkelacker is scheduled to impose Hunter’s jail sentence, a federal judge, U.S. District Judge Timothy Black, issues an emergency stay of her sentence. Hunter’s attorneys had filed a federal habeas corpus petition, arguing she didn’t get a fair trial because of mistakes by the judge and misconduct by the special prosecutors who handled the case. At a court hearing, Dinkelacker calls the stay “an overreach by a federal judge.”

May 2017

A federal magistrate judge recommends denying Hunter’s challenge to her conviction. Black must make the final decision.

May 29, 2019

Two years after the magistrate judge’s recommendation, Black, in a 26-page decision, says Hunter’s sentence can be imposed. He says strong evidence against Hunter undermines her "claim that the verdict was a result of the inflammatory and prejudicial effect of remarks made by the special prosecutor during closing argument."

Monday, July 22, 2019

An execution of sentence hearing is set for 9 a.m. in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court.
