Charlotte DePersia, 61, of Huntington, was arrested Tuesday on Montauk Highway West in Hampton Bays when it was found she was driving a car with a suspended registration, according to Southampton Town police.
Police said that after further investigation they found that DePersia had a revoked license. At police headquarters, DePersia was charged with both second- and third-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, circumvention of an interlock device, and driving with a suspended registration, all misdemeanors.
DePersia was released with an appearance ticket at Southampton Town Justice Court.
Back in 2010, DePersia was arrested and charged with felony driving while intoxicated after she crashed her vehicle into another in Bridgehampton. She pleaded guilty and received probation. The four victims of the crash—included a pregnant woman—and Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota had called for a prison sentence. Though she initially avoided jail time, DePersia was jailed in 2012 when she violated probation by drinking two glasses of wine.
