PORTSMOUTH, N.H. – Persephanie Lesperance, a Portsmouth model who was charged with dealing heroin in November, is in trouble with police again.

On Monday, she was arrested at Portsmouth District Court and charged with criminal trespass and breach of bail for allegedly breaking into a residence at the Gosling Meadows public housing complex.

Lesperance, 24, of 220 Raleigh Way, was a runner-up in Maxim's "Hometown Hottie" contest. She was also one of eight people arrested in a drug sweep of the Seacoast Nov. 13. She was charged with conspiracy to sell heroin and possession of Suboxone.

About a week after her arrest, Det. Sgt. John Peracchi said Lesperance broke into a residence through a window at Gosling Meadows. The conditions of her bail prohibited her from stepping foot on the property, Peracchi said. He said he couldn't release more details on the break-in because it could compromise the safety of the victims. 

Lesperance's hometown is Hampton, according to an interview she did with New Hampshire Magazine. She told the magazine she was just getting started in modeling and in her spare time did charity work, including collecting dresses, shoes and accessories for young girls whose families were affected by Hurricane Sandy.

Note to Lesperance family: it's Persephone, not Persephanie.

I know all of this sounds bad and is bad. This was one really very nice girl who I know from church. Always very polite and respectful. Prayers go out to you.
