A Cincinnati courtroom descended into chaos when a former judge had to be dragged out of the room by a bailiff.

Tracie Hunter had served as a juvenile court judge for Hamilton County, Ohio, from 2012 to 2014. It was discovered in September 2014 that Hunter may have passed information that helped her brother, a Hamilton County juvenile court jailer, in a disciplinary hearing. Her brother was accused of striking an offender, and his boss recommended his immediate firing.

To aid him, Hunter demanded files on the youth that she passed on to her brother to help him keep his job. She stood trial and was convicted in October 2014 for unlawful interest in a public contract and sentenced to six months in jail.

Instead of accepting the sentence, Hunter has filed multiple appeals in an effort to overturn the court’s decision and sentence. Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley asked Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Patrick Dinkelacker in a letter to not execute Hunter's sentence since she had been professionally punished and had committed a violent crime. 

Hunter appeared in court Monday after exhausting all of her appeals in a scene that was caught on camera.

Judge Dinkelacker first touched on Hunter’s multiple appeals along with thousands of letters the court has received asking to not put Hunter behind bars.

However, Judge Dinkelacker explained this wasn’t enough to move him and ordered Hunter to be taken into custody. He cited a letter from prosecutor Joe Deters, which said Hunter has never felt remorse and that he believes she has a "mental condition."

The crowd gathered in support of Hunter erupted in protest, with one person being arrested after trying to get to the defense’s table.

Hunter, meanwhile, went limp, forcing one of the bailiffs to drag her out of the courtroom.

Hunter on Sunday had posted comments on Twitter about her Monday court date.
