Jurors began deliberating Thursday whether Kerry Kennedy broke the law when she drove wildly and sideswiped a tractor-trailer on a New York interstate after accidentally taking a sleeping pill.
Kerry Kennedy swerved her Lexus into a truck, damaging the car and blowing a tire, but kept driving and later was slumped at her steering wheel and disoriented, motorists testified Monday at her drugged-driving trial.
Even if Kerry Kennedy accidentally drugged herself with a sleeping pill before getting in her car, she broke the law if she kept driving after feeling the drug's effects, prosecutors say.
Defense attorney Gerald Lefcourt said, "We're very happy that the case is being moved to a court where the parties can act like it's a courtroom instead of a meeting room."
Attorney Gerald Lefcourt said after the court session Thursday that he has asked the judge to reconsider a previous judge's refusal to dismiss the case.
