Talk about privilege.
According to the New York Post, Caroline Biden, niece of former vice president Joe Biden, has managed to skate on going to prison even though she admitted in court to stealing more than $100,000 in a credit card scam.
Reportedly, the victim gave Biden the card in order that she could make a $672 purchase. Biden instead used the card to open an account at Bigelow Pharmacy in New York City, and charged over $100,000 there from April 2015 to June 2016.
Biden pleaded guilty to charges of grand larceny and petit larceny in Manhattan Supreme Court. She also agreed to make restitution in the amount of $110,810.04.
The Post additionally points out that Caroline Biden has had a history of trouble, as well as a history of getting over on the criminal justice system…and the people.
In another instance, Biden was charged in September 2013 with assaulting a police officer who had been called to intervene in an altercation involving Biden and her roommate.
As she was being arrested, Biden reportedly screamed at the cops that “I shouldn’t be handcuffed,” and “you don’t know who you’re doing this to!”
Biden was cut a fantastic break then, too. When she appeared in Manhattan Criminal Court in 2014 to face the music, she was informed the charges would be dismissed if she managed to stay out of trouble for the subsequent six months.
In that case, the charges were ultimately dismissed, and the record sealed.
How about that?
