NEW YORK (AP) — A niece of former Vice President Joe Biden has pleaded guilty in a $110,000 credit-account theft at a New York City drugstore.
Caroline Biden admitted Friday to grand larceny and petty larceny, with an agreement to get two years’ probation if she repays the money, does 10 days of community service and avoids re-arrest for a year.
Her lawyer, Ira London, declined to comment Saturday.
A complaint says the 29-year-old Biden used a borrowed credit card to open a customer account at the Manhattan shop without the cardholder’s OK then racked up the tab over a year.
