Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio has been arrested again.
The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says the judge was arrested at her home on a charge of Attempted Criminal Purchase or Disposal of a Weapon. She was arraigned this afternoon (Tues) before Ontario County Court Judge William Kocher.
Court papers say this is in connection with her alleged attempt to buy a shotgun last week. Astacio denied trying to buy the gun in a lengthy social media post this week.
Judge Astacio was released on her own recognizance and ordered to appear in Henrietta town court on May 3rd. She allegedly tried to buy the shotgun at Dick's Sporting Goods in Henrietta, but was turned down there and at two other sporting goods stores.
