Robert Kennedy's Son And Granddaughter Facing Criminal Charges

Back in August, Robert F. Kennedy's 22-year-old granddaughter, Caroline Rose Kennedy, was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct.

The young woman, along with her father, Max Kennedy, 55, were arrested at a wild house party in Massachusetts, after drunkenly arguing with police officers responding to complaints about loud noises.

It was unclear whether Max and his daughter were the hosts of the party or they were just guests, but they simply wouldn't comply with requests made by the authorities.

The report indicated that when the cops tried to enter the house, Max got out of control and started "screaming incoherently and throwing himself at the wall. When he hit the wall, he grabbed a wall cabinet (filled with glass valuables) and threw it smashing the contents."

Max was arrested first, but when Caroline stepped in to help her father and tried to get him out of the cruiser, she too was arrested. She allegedly refused to take a breathalyzer, admitting that she knew she was drunk. She also told the officers to "f**k off."

Upon reaching the police station, Caroline told the booking officer, "I went to Brown and I'm a teacher, sweetheart!"

Unfortunately for her, the innocent act did not work, and she is now facing some serious consequences.

While Max's charges were dismissed after he paid a $150 fine for violating the noise law, Caroline is in a much more serious predicament.

Her arraignment was originally scheduled for November 22, but it has been moved to March 2018 because she hasn't met the conditions laid by the District Attorney's Office.

She is required to complete a pre-trial "diversion program" in order to have the charges against her dismissed, according to the Boston Herald.


"Upon successful completion of the program, which includes community service and a letter of acceptance of accountability for one's actions, the criminal case is diverted out of the court system and dismissed provided there is no further difficulties with the court," prosecutor Tara L. Miltimore told the newspaper.

The Cape and Island District Attorney's Office Youthful Diversion Program is offered to first-time offenders, like Caroline, with minor charges.

Hopefully, Caroline will learn and grow from this experience.
