Suspended Rochester Judge Leticia Astacio is scheduled to be arraigned on Oct. 1 at the Hall of Justice in Rochester.
On Tuesday, a Monroe County grand jury indicted Astacio on gun charges.
Astacio is charged with attempted criminal purchase or disposal of a weapon.
Investigators say Astacio tried to buy a shotgun back in April from Dick's Sporting Goods in Henrietta even though she is prohibited from owning a gun because she is on probation for her prior DWI conviction.
As per New York State law, a conviction of a felony automatically leads to disbarment which is the removal of a lawyer from a bar association or the practice of law.
