Kerry Kennedy Not Guilty of Drugged Driving, Jury Says
Feb. 28, 2014
By COLLEEN CURRY

The daughter of Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel Kennedy and niece of President John F. Kennedy was accused of knowingly taking the sleep medication and then driving while coming under its effects.

Kennedy was charged after she crashed her Lexus SUV into a truck on a New York highway one morning in July 2013.

Kennedy, who is also the former wife of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, claims that she accidentally mistook the Ambien instead of her thyroid medication with a light breakfast that morning before heading to the gym, and had no idea she was coming under its effects as she drove. She said she did not remember the crash.

Kennedy's defense attorneys have focused much of their attention on Kennedy's famous family and presidential lineage. When she testified in the case on Wednesday, Kennedy began by explaining that her father, Robert F. Kennedy, was a civil rights leader who was killed while running for president.

She has been joined by a slew of supporters, including her mother, Ethel, whom she pushed into the courthouse in a wheelchair earlier in the week, her sister Rory, and her daughters.

She could face up to a year in jail if convicted of the misdemeanor charge.

She can afford a chauffer, so it's even worse to drive under the influence. I guess she will have to kill someone before she will be found guilty. Even then, Kennedys get off murder raps.

How many of those jurors want their kids at the crosswalk when a drug-impaired Kerry Kennedy zooms past?
