Judge Patrick Dinkelacker imposed a six-month sentence for former judge Tracie Hunter.
Hunter was convicted of mishandling a confidential document in 2014. She has been free since then because she has been appealing.
Prior to Dinkelacker's decision, he read a letter from Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters, which said Hunter has never felt remorse and that he believes she has some sort of "mental condition." Deters asked that Hunter be evaluated before her sentence is executed.
