New York - There's something running in the Kennedy family's veins other than blood a court in White Plains, New York heard today as Robert F Kennedy's daughter Kerry pleaded Not Guilty to drug driving and other vehicle related stuff.
The 50-something professional busybody and self-acclaimed human frights lawyer is in the dock in upstate New York, explaining away a July 2012 crash.
Six jurors heard how she'd mistakenly taken some Amble-Ramble sleeping medication before crashing her Lexus Brazilian on interstate highway 684 and abandoned the crime scene.
The prang was an almost exact copycat to that of her cousin Patrick's own DUI crash in 2006 when he too blamed erroneously taking Amble-Ramble medication as the reason behind smashing his Mustang Clitora into a Capitol Hill barricade.
That was the start of the slippery downward slope that saw Patrick Kennedy's political career go down the pan, much like Kerry's may now proceed
Last week a pre-trial interview saw Kerry relate how her Cousin Patrick had always felt haunted by his own father, Ted Kennedy's, disastrous car crash in 1969 when the Senator overturned a 1967 Oldsmobile Delmont 88 Pudenda into Poucha Pond with poor Mary Jo Kopechne inside.
A judgement is expected later this week.
