Biden’s Niece Dodges Jail After Horrendous Crime

It pays to be the niece of the former Vice President of the United States.

Caroline Biden, 29, stole more than $110,000 in a credit card scam. But, possibly due to her famous name, she won’t be serving a single day in jail.

Biden had stolen an unidentified victim’s Chase credit card—and proceeded to go on a year-long, six-figure spending binge in 2015 and 2016. She was arrested last month.

But now, Biden just cut a plea deal in a Manhattan court that keeps her out of jail altogether. She pled guilty to one charge of grand larceny and another count of petit larceny.

Assuming she stays out of trouble—and pays back the full $110,810.04 she stole from her victim—Biden can return to court to get her crimes reduced to a lower, misdemeanor charge of petit larceny. She would face just two years of probation.

But even if she fails to live up to the incredibly easy terms of her plea deal, Biden still won’t face any time in jail: she would simply face three additional years of probation.

This isn’t Caroline Biden’s first brush with the law: she was arrested in September 2013 for resisting arrest, obstruction of justice, and harassment—after she took a swing at a female cop, who was trying to break up a fight between Biden and her roommate.

Biden was also lucky back then: the courts promised charges would be dropped if she stayed out of trouble for a paltry six months.

“The pressure of being Joe Biden’s niece made her totally unravel,” a friend of Biden’s, Paul Johnson Calderon, told the New York Post after Biden’s 2013 arrest. “It’s a desire for attention, a cry for help. She’s a very complicated girl who has a lot of feelings and a lot of issues.”

The pressure of being related to someone famous might be hard—but the perks of being able to get away with crime after crime must make it a little easier.
