An Ohio courtroom erupted into utter chaos when a former judge was sentenced to six months in jail for using her position to help a family member, leading protesters to shout in fury and an officer to drag the shocked judge out of the room.

Former Hamilton County Juvenile Court Judge Tracie Hunter was sentenced to six months in jail on Monday in Cincinnati for a 2014 conviction of felony interfering with a contract.

She illegally passed her youth corrections officer brother confidential documents as he faced a disciplinary hearing and his job was on the line.

More than two dozen protesters, many wearing 'Justice for Judge Tracie M. Hunter' T-shirts opposed her sentence and one woman was arrested for trying to block officers from handcuffing Hunter in the courtroom.

Hunter - Shock - Sentence - Legs - Court

Hunter seemed to be paralyzed by shock upon hearing the sentence and with her legs locked straight, was dramatically dragged out of the court room by an officer.

She was convicted in 2014 of felony interfering with a contract for improperly passing information on to her brother Stephen Hunter, a youth corrections officer, when his job was on the line.

On July 7, 2013 Stephen Hunter allegedly struck a young offender while on the job.

His boss recommended he be fired and Tracie Hunter then improperly demanded and received documents about the hit teen and passed the confidential papers to her brother in an effort to help him keep his job as he faced a disciplinary hearing for his court job, according to prosecutors as per NBC.
