Sonya Deville Has Charged Against Her Dropped Ahead Of 2024

In February of this year, WWE star Sonya Deville, real name Daria Berenato, was arrested in Atlantic City for unlawful possession of a weapon, a firearm. Based on authorities that the Courier Post spoke with, the gun had been purchased legally in another state, but she lacked a New Jersey permit for it at the time of her arrest. It was also noted that according to the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, she “resolved the charge by completing six months in a pretrial intervention program in late November.”

On Wednesday, the prosecutor’s office said, “Superior Court Judge Bernard DeLury Jr. in Mays Landing approved her entry into the program on May 25.” Based on that, the office “consented to her admission based on a 2014 memo from the state Attorney General’s Office.”

Berenato has good reason to feel she needs extra protection. In August 2020, a deranged fan broke into her home in the middle of the night with zip ties, chemical spray, duct tape, and a knife with the intent to kidnap her. Fortunately, an alarm in her home sounded, and she was able to flee with her houseguest, then WWE star Mandy Rose, before anything took place. The police arrived on the scene not long after and arrested the man. He has been sentenced to fifteen years in prison.

Berenato’s last WWE match as Deville took place on SmackDown in July of this year. During Deville’s WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship defense alongside Chelsea Green against Charlotte Flair and Bianca Belair, she tore her ACL. She confirmed the injury not long after and noted that she did not know when she would be able to return to action. She also joked at the time that the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships were cursed, based on how they had been hot-potatoed around due to injury.
