Kerry Kennedy is set to appear again today at North Castle justice court in connection to an impaired driving charge against her stemming from a July 2012 alleged car accident on Interstate 684 in Armonk.
Court begins at 5 p.m. and Kennedy will appear before town Justice Elyse Lazansky, the court's office confirmed, at the town's courthouse in Armonk.
The appearance for Kennedy, a Bedford resident, will be her first in months for the case. The most recent public development in connection with the matter was a guilty plea by the truck driver she was accused of colliding with while driving. Rocco Scuiletti, a Dutchess County resident, pleaded guilty in November to a count of disobeying a traffic device, which is a violation. He was initially charged with leaving the scene of an accident, but took a plea deal.
North Castle Police reported that Kennedy stated she may have mistaken taken a sleeping pill instead of her thyroid medication. Kennedy herself initially told the press in July that, based on a consulting doctors, a seizure may have been to blame. After drug test results showed that Kennedy tested positive for a form of the Ambien sleeping medication, she issued a press statement, saying that "it now appears that my first instinct was correct."
