Attorney: Judge Astacio's probation violations should be thrown out

The attorney for Judge Leticia Astacio is asking that the court throw out probation violations against her.

More court papers were filed in Rochester City Court on Thursday designed to get Astacio released from jail. Her lawyer wants every alleged violation of probation thrown out and he wants the judge freed.

In court documents, her lawyer writes that probation "lacks the authority to set terms and conditions. As such, there exist no terms [from the court] which state that Ms. Astacio cannot come into contact with or use consumer products which contain alcohol."

Astacio was locked up Monday because she's accused of leaving Monroe County twice without permission from her probation officer. Her attorney says Astacio left voicemails for her probation officer about the trips after "she had previously been given permission to leave a voicemail message indicating when and where she was traveling by her probation officer's supervisor."

Both times she ended up at del Lago Resort and Casino in Seneca County.
