NEWS 8 - "Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio’s probation officer is accusing her of violating her probation by leaving Monroe County without permission to stay for one night at del Lago Resort and Casino in Seneca County.
In court paperwork submitted to Judge Stephen Aronson, the officer says Astacio left on September 20 and left a phone message with her probation officer detailing her trip, but that message was not received until the next day.
The officer wrote, “Permission prior to travel was not given to her.”
This violation was tacked on to others Judge Aronson might consider during a hearing on October 19.
One of the other violations was logged after her ankle bracelet detected alcohol.
Astacio blamed the reading on a cosmetic sock that contained an ingredient that triggered the bracelet, which is called a SCRAM.
Astacio was placed on probation over the summer after a missed alcohol test and court hearing, both of which were tied to her DWI conviction last summer.
The New York State Commission on Judicial Conduct is examining her case to determine what, if any, punishment to hand down."
