Kerry Kennedy may agree to a plea deal over driving while drugged charges stemming from a 2012 accident so she can continue her extensive human rights work.
Kennedy, 54, is afraid a conviction would bring with it restrictions that would curtail her international travels she has visited several dozen countries on humanitarian missions.
The plea deal was previously discussed between her legal team and prosecutors before being shelved, but her attorneys have brought it back to the table with her trial slated to start Monday, according to the New York Daily News.
Lawyers originally tabled the deal while preparing a defense explaining former Senator Robert F Kennedys daughter took Ambien by mistake she meant to take thyroid medication, sources told the paper.
Our defense in this case is that Kerry Kennedy did not knowingly and intentionally ingest those sleeping pills, her lawyer explained Friday in court.
The pills are very similar, he added. She took what she thought was her thyroid medication.
The former wife of current New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Kennedy was travelling between the Western Sahara and Brussels, Belgium during last weeks jury selection process, sources said.
Kennedy faces a misdemeanor charge of driving while impaired by drugs after colliding July 13, 2012 with a tractor trailer on a suburban New York highway, authorities said.

“Humanitarian missions”? Or tax deductible tourism?
I’ve been on humanitarian missions to Vegas, New Orleans, and Daytona Beach. Most were successful, but rarely worth mentioning on CNN International or such.
“...she has visited several dozen countries on humanitarian missions...”
She’s a Kennedy. Probably pressuring countries to do more forced abortions.
I think we could call this "feel-good-about-yourself tourism," if we wanted to be uncharitable. OF COURSE both sides in this gussied-up tribal blood-feud treat one another horribly, and of course, all sides treat women horribly, since they're all Moslems.
The pills are very similar?!?!? What does this dim-bulb do........pour her pills into a candy dish?
This 'leaving the scene of an accident' must be a tradition in the Kennedy family..............
I can just see Kennedy on Monday morning, still groggy in bed, on the phone:
“I need to make a trip to document some brutality and squalor. Get me a ticket to a Muslim country.”
Good grief! Background checks, including mental health clearances from doctors, and federal registry should be required before anyone named Kennedy is allowed to purchase a vehicle. Better yet, Kennedys should only be allowed to purchase vehicles for hunting down other politicians.
Brussels is the scene of a human rights casualty, because it is the capital of the EU.
Seems like leaving the scene of an accident runs in the Kennedy family.
Yes there are two Americas.
One for the proles and one for the well connected.
Kerry Kennedy is too important to face the same justice system as the little people.
Her “extensive human rights work” sets her apart from us lesser beings who must toil away just to earn our own sustenance.
Where, zoned on whatever prescription medication she brought along, she'll collect evidence that the brutality and squalor have absolutely nothing to do with Islam, corruption, tribalism, or boneheaded egotism. It's all ... Israel's fault! That's it!
The Western Sahara spat is basically a sandbox version of the Palestinian "crisis" ... people sitting in "refugee" camps for generations because they refuse to accept a government that's not run by their tribe. They get less press because it's too far away for anyone smarter than a Kennedy to blame Israel. All the governments involved are Moslem.
Just you or I try to explain to a judge that our DUI was the result of our having "confused," e.g., Gatorade with moonshine (the mayonnaise jars we keep them in are, after all, "very similar"), and see how far we get!
Two Americas = one for the members of the overseer class who see themselves as the most fit to RULE and then there’s everyone else.
I don’t think the average person would need a “legal team” to fight a misdemeanor charge like this. But I expect we don’t want this royal elite to be curtailed in her efforts to fly around the world in a private jet telling everyone not to pollute.
How in the heck can you help other people when you’re drugged up and running into tractor trailers?
These sleazebag bucktoothed inbreds can't even get a new script when they FU. This is the exact excuse given by cousin and former congress-critter Patrick Kennedy when he screwed up driving.
All Kennedys are scum including Saint Jack.
This story can be a lot shorter:
A rich drug addict is grabbing for any BS excuse to cover up and excuse her crime of DUI hit and run and will probably get off easy.
It’s not her fault, It runs in the family.
All the Kennedys have a prescription to Ambien, apparently, so they can cover up their drug habits. What a bunch of screwed up people. If they were not Kennedys, they’d be locked up like the “little people”.
I meant to drink a cup of coffee. The pint of Wild Turkey was an accident. I now have a defense if I ever get charged with a DUI.
I should have read the comments. GMTA
Either that or killing everyone outright, such as Junior did. Never get into a conveyance with any of these people.
Aid to the auto body industry?
She was aware enough to leave the scene of the accident but not aware enought to take the correct pill...sure. More trust fund money to be spent on a jackal attorney too.
The first line of the article is a parody in and of itself!
It might run in the family but it sure don’t drive too well...
NBC reports that Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment.
“All the Kennedys have a prescription to Ambien,”
I HATE Ambien! It made me walk in my sleep, which I used to do when I was a kid, but had outgrown. Ambien brought it back. At first, I couldn’t figure out why there was food out on the counter when I got up in the morning. Almost burnt my house down one night cooking while somnambulating!
Of course that has nothing to do with KK, but,,, I HATE Ambien!
Regarding human rights, her children have the right to a mother, her husband has the right to a non-adulterous wife, other drivers have the right to life.
Yet another lawbreaking Kennedy demanding special treatment?
All I can say is that I am about as likely to name my next child “Kerry Kennedy Golux” as “Abu Husein Mohammed Golux.”
Actually, less likely.
It’s just... The worst name ever.
What could be worse?
Osama Bin Golux? At least it has a ring to it.
Kerry Kennedy Carter Golux? At least the Carters could sing.
It’s just a gross name. If someone extended their hand to you and said: “KERRY KENNEDY!”
Wouldn’t you just pause, just a little? And maybe vomit just a bit in your mouth?
That is why the politicians aren't trying to elevate people and move them off the urban plantations.
Instead, they are trying to get the rest of us on the plantations.
They are killing the middle class and making their Nanny State/Police State stronger and more pervasive to force us on to the government teat.
It disturbs them greatly to see us living free and not treating them as Royalty.
LOLOLMAO! Best laugh of the weekend!! What an image that one conjures-up!
The apples don’t fall far from the tree!
Now here is a real criminal that 35 FBI agents needed to be assigned to persecute.
How ridiculous! I take thyroid pills and they look NOTHING like sleeping pills! I’ve taken several different dosages, so I know there is a full range of colors, but size and color of these are quite different.
They look different on purpose, so they can not be confused by patient or pharmacist. There are entire courses on the very topic
Thanks for pointing this out. For anyone who doesn't know what Western Sahara is look it up. It is one of the most bizarre places on earth. There is a dirt mound that runs the length of the country with one side aligned with Morocco and the other nominally aligned with Algeria and some roaming tribes. It has no central government and a permanent UN Peacekeeping force that wanders back and forth around the dirt wall. One of the most ridiculous situations in the world.
It would be a great place to drop off the whole Kennedy clan.
That looks like what I’d get if I just dumped out all my different vitamins and minerals, instead of sorting them into a 7-day compartmented container.
Why, yes ... yes it would! They'd fit right in.
Humanitarian work? LOL! “I gave some bum a Swiss France the last time I was in Monaco”. When will a judge finally say “Enough” with these slimeballs, give her an ankle bracelet and confine her to the U.S. for a year?
YOU KENNEDYS ARE ALL ALIKE!
Ugliness runs in the Kennedy family. It also runs in Cuomo’s family. She won’t do a day in jail and will get off with a slap on the wrist. Apparently, she was banging everyone but Cuomo when she was married to him. The Kennedys—the original, Irish white trash family.
Obviously she used to sleep with the wrong NY politician.

That’s the smart way to do it. A little more effort on the front end, but it pays-off.
