Caroline Kennedy to serve as juror on crack-cocaine case
Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of John F. Kennedy and niece of Robert F. Kennedy, was selected to serve as a juror on a crack-cocaine-dealing case in New York City, lending high-profile and star status to what normally would move through court as a routine hearing.
Her answers to questions posed to prospective jurors in a Manhattan court already proved headline-grabbing.
She ignored a question from an attorney who wanted to know if she or her family had ever been the victim of a crime, the New York Post reported. She forgot to mention her campaign work for the current district attorney on the case, Cyrus Vance Jr. And she nearly brushed past questions about family histories with drug problems — despite a list of cousins who battled addictions with heroin and cocaine.
“I know … a few people,” the Post reported her as mumbling.
Ms. Kennedy will be a fair juror, said the lawyer for the defendant, Nelson Chatman.
“Absolutely,” she’ll be impartial, said attorney Mark Jankowitz in the Post.
