Supporters of Judge Tracie Hunter Step Up
HAMILTON COUNTY, Ohio (Brad Underwood) -- Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter has always had close supporters and they are speaking out on her behalf.
A national group is coming to Hunter's defense. Friday's eight count indictment of Judge Tracie Hunter did not surprise those close to her. Reverend Bishop Bobby Hilton even asked, "Where is the kitchen sink?" citing his belief that the Republican party is out to embarrass and discredit the judge.
Bishop Hilton is the local President of the National Action Network, which is an equal rights organization founded by the reverend Al Sharpton. Friday afternoon, Hilton appeared on Sharpton's nationally syndicated radio show about what Hilton is calling a travesty surrounding Judge Hunter's indictments.
Hilton says he believes the truth will emerge and prove Judge Hunter's innocence in this case.
"This is the continuation of the attempted politician assassination of Judge Tracie Hunter. She's been standing strong, over 100,000 people voted for her, and many people continue to yet stand strong by her side, we will not move."
The National Action Network does have a regularly scheduled meeting Saturday morning. Bishop Hilton says that meeting will be open to the public and they will be discussing Judge Hunter's case.
The National Action Network is currently raising money for Judge Hunter's legal defense fund.
