Hunter, who was appointed in 2010, was convicted of illegally passing her youth corrections officer brother confidential documents to keep his job in 2013. After she was accused of illegally interfering with a contract, she was suspended from her service in January 2014.

On Monday, she was seen in a complete shock after the court judge announced her sentence. Seemingly paralyzed, Hunter was dragged out of the courtroom by an officer with her legs locked straight.

Talking to NBC affiliate WLWT on Sunday, Hunter told,

I violated no laws, I did not secure a public contract, I did not secure employment for my brother who worked for the court for about seven years before I was elected judge. They need to drop these unrighteous and I believe unlawful charges against me.
