CINCINNATI (AP) - A suspended juvenile court judge sentenced to six months in jail on a felony wants an Ohio appeals court to grant her release on bail and postpone her sentence while she appeals the conviction.

Tracie Hunter’s attorney filed the motion Monday with the First District Ohio Court of Appeals in Cincinnati. A Hamilton County judge has denied Hunter’s motion to postpone the sentence set to begin Dec. 29. Hunter was sentenced this month on her conviction of unlawful interest in a public contract.

Monday’s motion argues that Hunter has a strong likelihood of success in appealing her conviction. It also says she has serious health issues and also would need to be segregated from other inmates because of her high-profile position.

Prosecutors didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment.
