WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — A small-town New York courtroom may not be big enough for the drugged-driving trial of Kerry Kennedy, ex-wife of Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
Lawyers for both sides are looking beyond the town courthouse in Armonk, N.Y., for a bigger space.
Defense attorney Gerald Lefcourt said Thursday the lone 60-seat courtroom won’t be able to hold the expected numbers of reporters, interested residents and a jury. He says potential venues have been scouted.
A spokesman for the Westchester County district attorney said prosecutors are participating in the search.
No trial date has been set.
Kennedy swerved her Lexus into a tractor-trailer last year. Tests found a small amount of a sleeping drug in her blood. She says she accidentally took a sleeping pill.
Kennedy is Sen. Robert Kennedy’s daughter and President John Kennedy’s niece.
