WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — The daughter of former U.S. attorney general Robert F. Kennedy has been acquitted of drugged driving, in a case in which she accidentally took a sleeping pill before her wild spin down a New York highway.
Jurors delivered their verdict Friday in Kerry Kennedy's misdemeanor trial in a New York suburb.
The human-rights advocate is the ex-wife of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the daughter of RFK and the niece of former president John F. Kennedy.
Her car hit a tractor-trailer during the incident in 2012, and she was later found slumped over the steering wheel.
