More Violations for Astacio


13 WHAM - "Additional allegations have been filed against Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio.

Ontario County Assistant District attorney Zach Maurer confirmed Friday morning that there has been "an amended violation of probation filed that includes new allegations against Ms. Astacio."

Court paperwork states that on September 29, Astacio told her probation officer that "she would not pick up a travel permit when she travels."

On October 15, Astacio allegedly left without telling anyone in the probation office and traveled to del Lago Resort & Casino. This information was confirmed by data from her ignition interlock device.

On October 4, Astacio told her probation officer that "she had business in Syracuse starting on October 17, but that she would be leaving earlier to prepare." Court documents state that her probation officer directed her to give her officer specific dates of travel and an address where she would be staying.

The probation officer then called Astacio on the morning on October 16. Astacio "apologized for not providing specific information prior to travel and did give the address of where she was staying."

The conditions of Astacio's probation mandate that she remain in Monroe County unless she is granted prior permission to leave from the court or her probation officer.

This is in addition to two separate filings of Astacio leaving Monroe County to travel to del Lago Resort & Casino in September and registering a 0.127 BAC in July. Both of these allegations would be considered violations of her probation.

Astacio is scheduled to be arraigned at her next court appearance on Monday, October 23 at 2 p.m.

Greg Salmon, Astacio's attorney, told 13WHAM News "any allegations of violations of the terms of her sentence will be addressed" at her next court appearance.

In a separate incident, Astacio was the alleged victim of harassment at a bowling alley and bar last weekend. A Spencerport woman is accused of accosting Astacio outside the establishment and trying to goad her into a fight.

Employees at the Hall of Justice in Rochester confirmed Astacio has not been at work since August 31, citing a doctor's note. She is still receiving her $174,000 annual salary.

The NYS Judicial Commission is scheduled to meet on Thursday, October 26 - three days after Astacio's arraignment hearing."
