Former East Hampton Corcoran broker Charlotte DePersia, 59, who was prominent in the Hamptons, was sentenced to serve a total of seven months and one week at the Suffolk County Jail DWI Alternative Facility, a Long Island substance abuse treatment center, for a probation violation, 27 East reported. Her violation was a total of two glasses of wine consumed on March 10 at Gurney’s Inn in Montauk, as her probation stipulated that she not consume any alcohol.

As The Real Deal previously reported, DePersia was arrested in November 2010 for driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, when she swerved lanes on Montauk Highway, causing her Land Rover to hit a BMW. The accident injured two people, one of whom was a pregnant woman. According to 27 East, DePersia was on probation for a 2009 DWI at the time of this accident.

DePersia was jailed in April for violation of her probation, and her bail was set at $500,000 or $1 million bond.

DePersia’s former attorney, Tad Scharfenberg, said that she had been in treatment since the 2010 crash and had 15 months of good behavior on her record, but the District Attorney’s office had recommended that DePersia get the maximum sentence of one and one-third to four years in state prison. [27 East]
