Judge Hunter Found in Contempt
HAMILTON COUNTY, Ohio (WKRC) -- Embattled Hamilton County juvenile court judge Tracie Hunter has been found in contempt of court by the state's highest court.
The Ohio Supreme Court says Hunter is in contempt for barring Cincinnati Enquirer reporters from her courtroom. The ruling upholds an appellate court's findings against Hunter.
The conflict began over the Enquirer's coverage of six teens charged last year with badly beating a man in North College Hill. Hunter says she barred the newspaper from publishing the juveniles names, which she says violates state law.
She did not immediately return a call Friday.
