Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley says Judge Leticia Astacio was arrested Saturday morning after being stopped by New York State troopers on Interstate 490.
During a hearing on Tuesday, Astacio pleaded guilty to missing probation appointments on August 13 and I’m not going to tolerate it. Your actions show you do whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it. It stops today and it stops now. Former Rochester city court judge Leticia Astacio is back in court today after allegedly violating the terms of her probation. Before she was led away, Judge Toole told Astacio she has single-handedly changed the view the community has on the judicial system, calling what she’s done appalling.
She allegedly tested positive for alcohol in June and failed to cooperate with the Ignition Interlock Program. During Tuesday’s hearing, she admitted to not showing up for probation hearings, but would not admit consuming alcohol or failing to cooperate with the Ignition Interlock Program.
During a court appearance in late October, Astacio said she intentionally stopped going to probation to get a violation of probation order, so she could get in front of a judge and argue that the sentence she continues to serve is illegal. Astacio said the last few years have been difficult, stressful and embarrassing for her. The judge and senior assistant district attorney said this was nothing but a result of her own actions. Astacio has happened because of her choice,” said Chris Kvam, a senior assistant district attorney for Monroe County.
Those decisions continued after her sentence after her trial where she did not adhere to the restrictions of the interlock device and she put herself where she is today. Astacio has been accused of violating her probation before. She was found not guilty in that case and was allowed to keep her law license. Since then, she has continued to work as an attorney and even represented herself in this matter.
