People are angry after learning that the niece of former Vice President Joe Biden, walked out of a court a free woman despite admitting to stealing more than $100,000.
Police in New York, have arrested 29-year-old Caroline Biden of New York City, after being accused of borrowing a credit card from her friend and then going on a $100,000 shopping spree.
In court, Caroline pleaded guilty to grand larceny and petty larceny. The judge in the Manhattan Supreme Court, sentenced Caroline to two years probation.
People expressed their outrage of the extremely lenient sentence.
According to the police investigation, Caroline borrowed a woman’s credit card and she was given permission to make a $600 purchase.
Caroline went to the Bigelow Pharmacy, where she went on a massive shopping spree with the credit card. She racked up unauthorized charges in the amount of $110,000.
Several years ago, Caroline was arrested after hitting a police officer following an argument with her roommate.
She was charged with harassment, resisting arrest, and obstruction of justice, but a judge dismissed her case after she promised to stay out of trouble for 6 months.
