An early release coming for a jailed former Hamilton County Judge.

She is scheduled to be released on October 20th.

Former Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter is expected to be released early next month after serving about half of the sentence ordered by Judge Patrick Dinkelacker back in July. Hunter had to be dragged out of court after refusing to go with deputies as she was being ushered off to jail. Hunter is serving six months for having an unlawful interest in a public contract. The sheriff says she earned an early release by doing ministry work while locked up behind bars.
