Former Rochester Judge Leticia Astacio goes on trial today on a felony gun charge.
Jury selection gets underway today.
She's accused of trying to buy a shotgun at a Henrietta sporting goods store last year while she was on probation from her DWI conviction. The defense was granted a change of venue and the case is being heard in Syracuse.
Astacio was removed last fall as a Rochester City judge, but she is gathering petition signatures to run for City Council.
