Rochester Judge Will Return to Work, Keep $173K Salary, After Serving Jail Time

Convicted Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio will keep her job once she gets out of jail, despite having recently missed a court date and declining a plea deal offered to her by a colleague.

The Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reported that Astacio was told by her supervisors Judge Craig Doran and Judge Teresa Johnson that she will be required to conduct research at the courthouse law library from Monday through Friday during court hours.

"Her presence there will certainly be monitored and we'll know whether or not she is fulfilling those obligations," Doran told the D&C.

It's unclear, however, when those duties will commence, as Astacio is now facing jail time following her arrest at the court house on Monday.
