Astacio's Attorney Subpoenaed to Testify Against Her

Judge Leticia Astacio's attorney has been subpoenaed to testify against her.  She was back in court Wednesday - a day early - for a bail hearing, but was denied.  Prosecutors now want her attorney, Ed Fiandach, to take the stand to prove Astacio was notified in a timely fashion about a court-ordered ethyl glucuronide test.  The subpoena was dated June 6. 

Astacio was sent to jail without bail Monday morning after she declined a plea offer to make a declaration of delinquency.  She was arrested for failing to complete a urine test that was ordered after an alleged violation of her DWI sentence. Astacio was offered 45 days in jail, tow years' probation and more alcohol monitoring.  Judge Stephen Aronson reprimanded her for going overseas without notice last month. Astacio posted photos of herself in Thailand (You can see the photos HERE)  Astacio will go back to work and collect her $173,700 salary upon her release from jail — whenever that may be.
