Judge Astacio pleads not guilty to gun charge

Local News

Judge Leticia Astacio again pleaded not guilty to a gun charge stemming from attempted gun purchase earlier this year.

Judge Astacio appeared in court Monday for arraignment on attempted criminal purchase of a weapon.

Deputies said Astacio tried to purchase a shotgun at Dick’s Sporting Goods, but was restricted from owning a weapon under the terms of her probation. Her attorney argues the law doesn’t restrict shotguns.

Astacio will remain out on bail. Her attorney says he doesn’t expect a plea deal in the case.
