CINCINNATI (AP) - A juvenile court judge convicted of a felony must show the Ohio Supreme Court why she shouldn’t be held in contempt of court.

The state’s high court on Friday ordered suspended judge Tracie Hunter to show by Dec. 25 why she shouldn’t be held in contempt for not filing a sworn statement of compliance with its Oct. 21 order. She was ordered then to stop practicing law, among other things. She was given 30 days to confirm that she had complied.

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

Hunter was sentenced Friday to six months in jail on her conviction of having an unlawful interest in a public contract.

The Supreme Court suspended Hunter after her indictment and is investigating potential disciplinary action following her conviction.
