Joe Biden’s Niece Avoids Jail after Pleading Guilty in $110,000 Credit Card Scam

The 29-year-old niece of former vice president Joe Biden pleaded guilty on Friday to a $110,000 credit card scam.

Prosecutors said Caroline Biden admitted to grand larceny and petty larceny after she opened a line of credit on someone else’s card without permission at New York City’s C.O. Bigelow Apothecary, the New York Daily News reports:

The theft occurred between April 5, 2015 and June 24, 2016.

Biden was given permission to use the victim’s credit card to make a $672 purchase.

But unbeknownst to the woman — who was not identified — Biden opened a line of credit at the swank store.

If she pays back the money and stays out of trouble for a year, her top charge will be tossed and she’ll be sentenced to two years’ probation, according to the terms of her deal.

It’s not her first bout of legal trouble. She was arrested in 2013 for assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest during a scuffle with a roommate about paying rent, although no one was injured. In 2014, she took a conditional dismissal deal on the grounds that she was in therapy for anger issues.
