Some might have suspected that Kerry Kennedy, the daughter of Robert F. Kennedy, would get special treatment in her DUI case. She is a Kennedy, after all, and families don't get much closer to royalty status in the U.S. than that.
However, a New York court ruled this week to not let Kennedy off of the hook for an incident that she was involved in last July. She's accused of driving while impaired, but not by alcohol. The substance that led to her reported erratic driving was a prescription sleeping aid.
