CINCINNATI (AP) - Prosecutors say an Ohio juvenile court judge sentenced to six months on a felony conviction should go to jail as ordered by the trial judge.

The special prosecutors in the case against suspended Judge Tracie Hunter said in a state appeals court filing Friday that she has a history of ignoring authority and failing to follow higher courts’ orders. They were responding to an earlier filing by Hunter’s attorney asking that she be allowed to remain free while she appeals her conviction and sentence. The Hamilton County trial judge denied Hunter’s motion to postpone the sentence.

Hunter was found guilty of having an unlawful interest in a public contract. Her sentence is scheduled to start on Dec. 29.

Hunter’s attorney didn’t return a Friday call for comment.
