Kerry Kennedy lawyer wants NY driving case tossed
Tuesday - 1/15/2013, 5:59pm EST
By JIM FITZGERALD
ARMONK, N.Y. (AP) - An attorney for Kerry Kennedy, ex-wife of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said Tuesday that he will file a motion to dismiss the drugged driving charge against her.
Kennedy, daughter of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and niece of President John F. Kennedy, appeared in North Castle Town Court for a conference that lasted about two minutes.
The judge set a schedule for various court filings, including a March 1 deadline for defense motions.
Outside court, defense attorney Gerald Lefcourt said, "We're making a motion to dismiss."
Kennedy did not speak in court or to reporters outside.
Kennedy was arrested July 13 after police said her Lexus swerved into a tractor-trailer on Interstate 684 in North Castle. Police said she failed sobriety tests and was slurring her speech.
Tests found a small amount of a sleeping drug in Kennedy's blood. She says she believes she accidentally took a sleeping pill instead of her thyroid medication. No trace of alcohol was found.
Kennedy has pleaded not guilty.
Another defense attorney, William Aronwald, said Monday that Kennedy would never accept a plea bargain.
"Unless the district attorney's office decides to withdraw the charges, then the only way the case will be resolved is with a trial," Aronwald said.
The driver of the tractor-trailer pleaded guilty in November to a traffic infraction and was fined $130.
