Special Prosecutor Barry Porsch says a Monroe County Grand Jury has voted a one-count indictment against Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio, charging her with attempted criminal purchase or disposal of a weapon. That's a Class D felony.
The charge comes from Judge Astacio's attempt to buy a shotgun at Dick's Sporting Goods in Henrietta back in April. She was denied permission to buy the gun because she was on probation for her earlier drunken driving conviction, and the store notified the probation department and the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.
Judge Astacio is expected to be arraigned next week on the charge although the date has not yet been set.
