Kerry Kennedy in Court for Drugged-Driving Case

gty_kerry_kennedy_jt_120714_wgARMONK, N.Y. (AP) — There’s not much left for the judge to decide before the drugged-driving case against Kerry Kennedy goes to trial in suburban New York.

But when — and where — to have the trial may come up at a court session Tuesday.

Kennedy, ex-wife of Gov. Andrew Cuomo, daughter of Sen. Robert Kennedy and niece of President John Kennedy, was arrested last year after swerving her Lexus into a tractor-trailer.

Blood tests found a small amount of a sleeping drug. She says she accidentally took a sleeping pill.

The judge refused in May to dismiss the case. No motions have been filed since then.

Lawyers have been scouting for a bigger space than the town’s 60-seat courtroom.

One attorney said that won’t be able to hold the expected spectators and reporters.

      Ohhhh look at the poor jealous hater whining like big baby about his 40 year Kennedy obsession. She took one pill, had a minute amount of it in her system, nothing else. She’s not an addict. She could hire a limo and spend what you make in a year on a trip to the store for shoes. That’s your real problem.

        And you talk about whining!

    She is a gorgeous, rich, famous, blond, Irish lass, I say let her off with 10 days probation and a $10 fine.

      You’re not a judge.
