Judge Astacio pleads guilty to probation violation

November 13, 2017 06:25 PM

The Rochester City Court Judge convicted of DWI in 2016 will be released from jail after pleading guilty to a probation violation. 

On Monday Judge Astacio was offered time served, continued probation, and that she wear a SCRAM device. She will pay for monitoring but maintains the court can't make her pay for it. Judge Astacio reserved her right to fight that down the line.

Judge Astacio will plead guilty to one probation violation, which is the violation that triggered her SCRAM by using a foot peel with alcohol in it. She will be hooked back up to the SCRAM device once she is released from jail on Monday.

Judge Astacio's plea satisfies all the alleged probation violations against her. She will still file motions regarding her original sentence.
