This one is just unreal. Brace yourselves!
If this had been a Hollywood script, it would’ve been rejected for being too unbelievable.
Judge Leticia Astacio of Rocherster, New York that worked one day out of 214 received a $12,000 raise.
Her salary is now a comfortable $187,200.
She actually reported to work on February 27, 2018. Prior to that, her last day of work had been August 31, 2017.
Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio has received a pay raise, increasing her compensation to $187,200.An agreement issued by the Commission on Legislative, Judicial and Executive Compensation Board is responsible for the pay increase. It is the final of four installments agreed upon for all judges working in New York. This process began in 2015.
Chief Administrative Judge Craig Doran confirmed Monday that Astacio is still not showing up for work as directed.
All judges in New York have received a pay hike, but it’s unreal that Astacio is also receiving this because she hasn’t gone to work despite being ordered to do so.
Astacio was assigned to handle legal work that did not put her on the bench. She subsequently provided Doran with a doctor’s note, stating that she could not work.

That’s not even the most unbelievable part of this story.
She was assigned ‘desk duty because she had been convicted of a DWI in 2016, plead guilty and was given 3 years probation.
Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio had been assigned to the equivalent of desk duty while finishing a three-year probation sentence stemming from a 2016 DWI arrest. However, aside from reporting to work for one day on February 27, the judge has been absent since August 31.
She was sentenced to 60 days in jail for violating parole including drinking while wearing an alcohol ankle monitor that she says that she cannot afford to pay for on her then-$175,500 salary.
Watch her press conference when she was released from jail:
She was elected in 2014 and has 6 more years remaining of her term.
Since her arrest, Astacio has violated her probation multiple times, including an incident where she refused to pay for, and subsequently wear, her ankle monitor and was temporarily remanded back to custody. She was elected to a 10-year term which runs through 2024. Her boss, New York State Supreme Court Justice Craig Doran, said she is still required to show up for work.
“Our administrative view is that she continues to be under an obligation to appear for her assigned work duty,” Doran told Newsweek on Wednesday. Doran added that it was not under his purview to terminate Astacio or investigate claims against her.
On her social media account, she says she’s a target because of ‘racism’.
In a statement posted to her social media accounts, Astacio said local outrage regarding her pay hike stems from racism.
“You’re mad because I’m a young minority getting paid. I don’t want to hear about it,” she said, noting that news media appear to be treating her differently than other judges who have broken the law…
…”Can you get in your lane, get back in your pocket, and be quiet?” she told harassers in a 14-minute Facebook live post.
She continued, “What makes you feel so entitled to say these things that you would never ever say to another elected official, or about any another elected official publicly, without fear of retribution, arrest, you know, horrible things happening to you?”
Watch her whiny video:
*UPDATE: April 9, 2018 — Astacio has removed the video from her Facebook feed*
But she did post this:
‘What makes you feel so entitled?’ she asks.
She says she’s an elected official — a seated judge.
Then perhaps your backside shoulda been on the bench!
This isn’t about racism, it’s about a judge that seems to have no respect for the law and doesn’t even show up for work!
And guess what?
Yep, there’s more.
In the midst of her legal issues, she went to Thailand.
Remember, kiddies, she can’t afford to pay for her ankle monitor, but she can jet off to Thailand to hang out with some monks.
As you heard in the above clip, she’s a mom, you guys.
Oh, yes, she does have children.
Shocking, I know.
Watch her daughter Jaiya yells, ‘F**k you, Judge Aronson!’ as her mom is sentenced:
Wow. Way to go, Leticia. Excellent childrearing right there.
Ok, Rochester peeps — it’s your move.
By the way, she blames the Rochester legal system for her problems:
I almost forgot!
She also tried to buy a shotgun despite it being a violation of her probation. Dick’s Sporting Goods staff refused to sell it to her because of their store policy.
Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio allegedly tried to purchase a shotgun at Dick’s Sporting Goods in Henrietta on Monday, but was turned away by store employees, according to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to the store at 305 Miracle Mile Drive at The Marketplace Mall for the “third-party report of a person believed to be Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio” as she was trying to buy a shotgun, according to a news release…
…The terms of Astacio’s probation prohibit her “possessing a firearm, dangerous weapon, or noxious substance.”
In a pair of Facebook videos Monday, Astacio said, “I am so tired of being the focal point of the Rochester media like there’s nothing else for them to talk about. That’s insane.”

There is a Change.org petition to have Judge Leticia Astacio removed from the bench has received almost 30K signatures.

In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right.

There’s one thing that increasingly unites men and women these days. We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.
Conveniently available in Both Ladies…
AND Men’s versions.
Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.
They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!
They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.
Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
