WNYW news Anchor Rosanna Scotto’s son dodged a stint behind bars, taking a no-jail plea deal Wednesday in Manhattan court for allegedly swiping a Chanel purse at the Marquee club.
Louis Ruggiero, 21, copped to petit larceny for allegedly slipping the fancy pocketbook under his jacket and exiting the Meatpacking District hotspot March 7.
He has to complete an outpatient substance-abuse program at the Center for Living and stay out of trouble for six months, said Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Louis Nock.
Ruggiero will then be able to withdraw his guilty plea and cop to disorderly conduct as a violation, leaving him with no criminal record.
“It’s a fair resolution for both sides,” said his defense lawyer, Peter Frankel.
Cops arrested Ruggiero as he left the club after the frantic victim called 911 when she noticed that the handbag she tucked under a bench had gone missing.
Police allegedly found cocaine and a false ID on Ruggiero, who originally was charged with grand larceny, criminal possession of a controlled substance and possession of a forged instrument.
Scotto is co-anchor of WNYW's “Good Day New York” with Greg Kelly. She is the daughter of Anthony Scotto, a former boss in the Gambino crime family.
