Bidenís Niece Gets Probation for $100,000 Credit Card Scam
Breitbart ^ | 07/27/18 | Katherine Rodriguez

Posted on 07/29/2018 8:54:57 AM PDT by Enlightened1

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s niece avoided jail on Thursday after a Manhattan Criminal Court judge sentenced her to two years’ probation for stealing more than $100,000 in a credit card scam.

Caroline Biden, 31, accepted the two-year probation sentence after she pleaded guilty in June 2017 to racking up $110,810 worth of charges on a borrowed credit card as she went on a shopping spree.

“I not only acknowledge my conduct and take responsibility but deeply regret the harm caused,” Caroline told Justice Curtis Farber at her Thursday sentencing, according to the New York Post. “I can assure you that I have made amends, full restitution, completed community service and that nothing like this will ever happen again.”

As part of the sweetheart deal, the judge tossed the felony count of grand larceny while she pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of petit larceny.

Biden’s niece also completed ten days of community service at a children’s hospital, paid back the $110,810 she stole, and agreed to stay out of trouble as part of the deal.

Police arrested Caroline in May 2017 after she spent over $100,000 on purchases at Bigelow Pharmacy in New York with a stolen credit card between April 2015 and June 2016. Caroline asked the unnamed victim if she could borrow a credit card to make a $672 purchase.

Authorities initially charged her with grand and petit larceny and she initially pleaded guilty to both charges in exchange for two years’ probation.

The judge offered her a deal where she would plead guilty to both counts under the condition that she pay back the stolen money and stay out of trouble. In exchange for the guilty plea and the restitution, the judge agreed to drop the felony count of grand larceny.

Ain’t it interesting how socialists love other people’s money?
And just as interesting appears to be their inability to earn any by way of their own abilities to produce anything of value.

Even relatives of career politicians think they can do whatever they want and are above the law.

Lot of that going around for the connected. When are we the people going to start bringing pitch forks, tar, and feathers to these “sentencings”. 100+k is not a rounding error, it is a serious felony.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here, since I don’t follow dysfunctional families of politicians

Is Biden’s niece also a drug addict? Anyone know?

Poor impulse control is a common them that is shared by addicts, gamblers, chronic spenders, etc...

The price of buying off this “judge” was likely much higher than the restitution.

Obviously, dishonesty and corruption run in the family.

Equal justice under the law is a joke. We are no longer the America that believed justice is blind. The communists Democrats still rule America and part is the justice system. America is lost.

Personally, I’d give her a good spanking.

How do you spend $100K + over 14 months at a pharmacy?

She must have been buying far more than aspirin, nail polish, and shampoo.

$100,000 on purchases at Bigelow Pharmacy

What the heck did she buy at that pharmacy? Drugs? Drugs are probably the highest priced items at a pharmacy.

No, only those who couldn’t afford to pay back what was stolen would go to prison.

“Borrowed” credit card?

Did the owner lend it to her?

$100,000 in pharmacy charges in a year? Extremely high maintenance. Worse than a boat.

Well, I’ve seen pictures of her.

I don’t think she did it.
