Bail hearing set for Judge Astacio

October 25, 2017 06:46 AM

Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio will be back in a courtroom Wednesday, facing another judge. Astacio has requested a bail hearing.

Astacio has been in jail since her court appearance Monday, when a judge ordered her to be held without bail, at least until there is a hearing to determine whether or not she violated her probation. That is scheduled to happen November 3rd. Wednesday's hearing will be to determine whether she should be granted bail in the meantime.

This follows accusations Astacio violated her probation, stemming from her 2016 DWI conviction. Probation officers say her ankle monitoring device detected alcohol. They're also accusing her of going to del Lago Resort and Casino twice without permission. 

Astacio's attorney says she has obeyed all of the rules of her probation. He added he doesn't think Astacio should even be on probation in the first place.

Wednesday's hearing is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m.
