[Ed. – Tells press she had best attorneys money could buy and wishes everyone could.]
Kerry Kennedy gave herself a hearty round of applause as jurors Friday found her not guilty of drugged driving.
Kennedy, daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy, began clapping minutes after Supreme Court Justice Robert Neary dismissed the six-person panel from his Westchester County courtroom around 10:15 am.
Her lawyers, mom Ethel Kennedy and a squad of Kennedy cheerleaders joined in the ovation.
“I’m happy that justice was done,” Kennedy said before leaving the courtroom.
Asked if she was angry at prosecutors for trying the case, Kennedy rested her hand on a reporter’s forearm, leaned in conspiratorially and said, “I have to tell you the truth. Anger is the last feeling I have right now. Right now I’m full of gratitude.”
