ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - A city judge who was stripped of her judicial duties after driving drunk to work has been sentenced to 60 days in jail for violating the conditions of her DWI conviction.

Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio has been locked up since June 5 when Judge Stephen Aronson sent her to jail upon her rejection of a plea deal. Aronson sentenced her Thursday to 60 days in jail plus three years of probation and six months with an ankle monitor.

Before sentencing, Astacio said she has tried to comply with everything the court asked of her.

Astacio was charged with driving while intoxicated in February 2016. Her August conviction required random alcohol testing. She was jailed in June after skipping a court-ordered test and taking an extended vacation in Thailand.
