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.
