WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - Kerry Kennedy was acquitted Friday of drugged driving in a July 2012 incident in which she accidentally took a sleeping pill and then sideswiped a truck in a wild highway drive she said she didn't remember.Kennedy hugged and clasped hands with her lawyers as a six-person jury cleared her of driving while impaired, a misdemeanor. It had carried the potential for up to a year in jail, though that would be unlikely for a first-time offender.A human-rights advocate, Kennedy is a scion of one political dynasty - a daughter of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and niece of President John F. Kennedy - and a onetime member of another, as the former wife of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Her 85-year-old mother, Ethel Kennedy, and other members of their famous family attended the trial, which drew so much attention that it was moved from a small-town courtroom to a bigger courthouse in White Plains.
The reports I read said the jury was totally enamored of sitting on a "Kennedy" trial.
they still would have had some sort of reason, even if merely rationalizing their infatuation; I'd be interested in knowing what it was.
As would I - but these post OJ jury days nothing shocks me.
i'm not surprised, necessarily; that being said, i have no trust and no faith in the so-called criminal justice system. It's criminal, yes, but not just.
