Judge Says He Can't Dismiss Violation of Probation Charges Against Astacio

A judge says he can't dismiss some violation of probation charges against suspended Rochester Judge Leticia Astacio. The charges involve her alleged attempts to buy guns. 

The judge says the violations can't go away until the related criminal charges do. A grand jury could meet on those charges next month.

As a condition of her DWI probation, Astacio can't buy guns or dangerous weapons. Another hearing is set for next month. 

Her appeal of her removal from the bench will be heard in September.
