A judge in southwest Ohio has rejected a juvenile court judge's motion to dismiss charges against her.
Hunter has pleaded not guilty to felony charges, including tampering with evidence, forgery and theft in office. The Democrat has blamed politics for the charges.
The Ohio Supreme Court disqualified her in January from acting as a judge after an indictment alleged that she backdated court records and misused a county credit card.
