Hunter's charges related to allegations that she forged and backdated documents, used her county credit card to pay for legal filings and getting involved in the firing of her brother, who worked at the juvenile court.

In accordance with state law, Hunter was disqualified from acting as a judge by the Ohio Supreme Court on January 10, 2014.
