CINCINNATI (AP) - A suspended juvenile court judge convicted of a felony will begin her jail sentence this month.

Judge Norbert Nadel (NAY’-del) of Hamilton County Common Pleas Court on Tuesday ruled that suspended judge Tracie Hunter must begin her six-month sentence in the Hamilton County jail on Dec. 29 as ordered. Nadel set that date when he sentenced Hunter on Friday on her conviction of unlawful interest in a public contract.

Hunter’s attorney requested a sentence delay pending Hunter’s appeal of her conviction and sentence. Nadel didn’t comment in Tuesday’s ruling on the reasons for his denial.

Defense Attorney Clyde Bennett II didn’t immediately return calls for comment Tuesday.

Authorities say Hunter secured documents related to her brother’s juvenile court employment that she wasn’t supposed to have.
