Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio has been ordered to go to jail again.

She was in court Monday after being arraigned on probation violation charges. She entered a not guilty plea.

Judge Stephen Aronson presided over the arraignment that was in connection with Astacio allegedly leaving Monroe County without permission or filing required paperwork.

The probation is in connection with her DWI conviction last year. A hearing on the probation violation issue is now scheduled for November 3.

According to the D&C, her lawyer has said he will submit formal requests for a bail application and to expedite the hearing.
