East Hampton real estate agent Charlotte DePersia is due to be arraigned April 10 for a violation of her probation, which she was after pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated and vehicular assault.
Her guilty plea came after a she caused in Bridgehampton while drunk, striking a car with four occupants, including a pregnant woman.
The victims, an East Quogue couple and their friends from New Jersey, . But Judge William Condon, acknowledging DePersia's efforts in outpatient alcohol treatment since the accident, opted for probation instead. During her sentencing Dec. 13, 2011, Condon warned her that one slip-up during her probation — one urine test that comes back positive — will get her sent to an upstate prison. "Forget drinking and driving," Condon told her. "You can never drink again."
Reached March 21, DePersia's attorney, Tad Scharfenberg, said he had not received notice of what kind of violation his client allegedly committed nor whether it was only a technical violation.
The Suffolk County Department of Probation did not respond to an inquiry about the nature of the alleged violation.
DePersia's sentence also included 840 hours of community service, to be completed during the five years of her probation, and fines of $1,575, to be paid by June 13, and her driving privileges were revoked for one year.
