Bail denied for Judge Astacio

Local News

Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio was denied bail Wednesday afternoon.

Ontario County Judge William Kocher said he does not have authority to approve bail, and that a wit to habeus corpus must be made in Livingston County, where Astacio has been held since Monday. 

Astacio’s attorney Gregory Salmon says he plans to file more motions before 5 p.m. Wednesday.

As of 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, prosecutors had not received any updated documents from Salmon.

Astacio was ordered back behind bars without bail on Monday for allegedly violating the conditions of her probation. Judge Stephen Aronson had denied a request from Salmon to dismiss the charges.

The next scheduled hearing in this case is set for November 3rd.
