ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — New York's highest court will hear the case of a Rochester judge who's trying to keep her job after a state judicial panel said she should be removed from the bench because of her behavior.

The Democrat and Chronicle reports City Court Judge Leticia Astacio's attorney will argue her case before the Court of Appeals in Albany on Wednesday.

In April, the Commission on Judicial Conduct recommended that Astacio be removed because of a series of incidents that include a 2016 arrest for driving while intoxicated and skipping a court date, resulting in her being jailed.

Astacio and her Syracuse-based attorney, Robert Julian, say the commission's recommendation of removal is unfair and out of step with the panel's precedent.

Astacio remains suspended from the bench but continues to receive her $187,200 salary.
