NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Last month, Jennifer Troiano was fired from her job as an assistant district attorney in the Bronx.

Now, she has accepted a deal that allowed her to plead guilty to a drunk driving charge and avoid jail time.

She told a judge Friday that she was deeply sorry for her actions.

The plea will result in a suspension of her drivers license for six months and require an ignition lock on her car.

This latest drunk driving arrest for Troiano came after she was involved in a three-car pile up on the Major Deegan Expressway in 2010.

She had managed to talk herself out of two earlier DWI arrests, in 2004 and 2006.

For now, her lawyer says she’s getting rid of her car. She’s donating it to a charity.
