Former Vice President Joe Biden’s niece, Caroline Biden, pleaded guilty in 2017 to stealing a borrowed credit card and going on a $100,000 shopping spree. She has now paid it all back, but her punishment – or lack thereof, has people SCREAMING.
From BizPac Review:
The niece of former Vice President Joe Biden paid over $100,000 in court-ordered restitution on Friday, as part of an arrangement to avoid jail time for a six-figure shopping spree with a stolen credit card.
Biden, 30, accepted the deal under which she paid back $110,810.04 after pleading guilty to grand larceny in the Manhattan Supreme Court, the New York Post reports.
The former vice president’s niece was sentenced to two years’ probation back in June. The court agreed to drop the grand larceny charge against Biden and allow her to re-plead to petit larceny after she does 10 days of community service.
Biden’s recent skirt with the law stems from a 2015 incident in which she asked to borrow an unidentified man’s credit card for a $672 purchase at Manhattan’s Bigelow Apothecaries on Sixth Avenue.
She vastly exceeded that amount, charging the card with a total of $110,810.04. Biden was arrested in May 2017, and charged with grand and petit larceny.
So basically, this entitled brat steals over $100,000, and all she has to do is pay it back? I wonder if her Uncle wasn’t Joe Biden if she’d be sitting pretty in a jail cell right now.
