Attorney for Judge Astacio removed from case

November 09, 2017 06:23 AM

After being released from jail last week, Judge Astacio is looking for a new attorney.

Wednesday, Judge Aronson granted a request by Gregory Salmon to be removed as Judge Astacio's attorney. Salmon was hired just last month.


There will a hearing Thursday at 4 p.m. so Judge Astacio can go over her plans moving forward with a new attorney, city court officials tell News10NBC.

This will be Judge Astacio's fourth new attorney. Astacio was found guilty in August of 2016 of driving drunk on Route 490. But, since that conviction, Astacio has been accused multiple times of violating the conditions of her sentence or her probation and jailed twice.

Astacio was just released from jail last week after Salmon argued that she didn't properly receive the terms of her probation.
