Rochester City Court Judge Leticia Astacio remains suspended with pay, the State Court of Appeals announced Tuesday.

The Court of Appeals announced Tuesday that they uphold its April decision.

Last week, Astacio's attorney argued that she should continue to be paid during her suspension.

In April, the Commission on Judicial Conduct voted to remove Astacio from the bench. She has until May 24 to file an appeal or else it becomes final and her $187,200 salary ends.

If she does appeal, the process could take three to five months before a final decision is reached.
