WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Kerry Kennedy said she did not knowingly take a sleeping pill and did not realize she was impaired when she got behind the wheel.
As CBS 2’s Lou Young reported, Kennedy took the stand Wednesday at her drugged-driving trial in White Plains. She testified that she thought she had taken her thyroid medication, but must have taken a sleeping pill by mistake.
She testified for almost three hours, 1010 WINS’ Al Jones reported.
The prosecution argues that even if she took the sleeping pill accidentally, Kennedy violated the law by failing to pull over when it took effect.
