Caroline Biden has avoided jail for the third time after she recently pleaded guilty to an August 2019 DUI incident.
The President-elect’s niece crashed her car into a tree last summer and was sentenced to between 20 days and six months of “confinement” following her December 3 hearing, as reported by the New York Post.
The sentence was lessened to five or more months of probation and 20 days of rehab after she reached a plea deal with the Montgomery County, Pennsylvania district judge. She will also face a fine of less than $2,000.
“She will be on probation,” said Director of Communications for Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office Kate Delano to the New York Post. “Should she then violate or break the law at any time, then she will be on the hook for the rest of the sentence.”
The Post reports that Biden’s car had carisoprodol and lorazepam inside and a blood test found both drugs, as well as others, in her body at the time of the car accident.
The plea deal is the third time Caroline Biden will avoid prison after allegedly committing a crime.
In 2013, she was arrested for hitting a police officer after a fight with her roommate over rent payments. She was let off, agreeing to attend anger management classes, according to the reports.
Four years later, Caroline Biden had another run-in with the law after spending over $110,000 on a stolen credit card. A felony charge was dropped, and instead, she plead to a lesser charge of petty larceny and…she avoided jail time.
Having a former Senator, former Vice-president, and likely future President in your family sure seems to pay off.

Trump: Tanks to Ukraine could escalate to use of ‘NUKES’
Former President Donald Trump stated bluntly on Truth Social, “FIRST COME THE TANKS, THEN COME THE NUKES. Get this crazy war ended, NOW. So easy to do!”
Trump was referring to the escalation of war in Ukraine. He, like many other commentators and lawmakers, are warning that the decision to continue sending weapons – and now tanks – could potentially lead to the use of “nuclear weapons.”
It’s mission creep and it’s dangerous, they say.
Why? Because Russian President Valdimir Putin has indicated in two different speeches that he would use nuclear weapons to defend Russia, if needed. Those warnings are not just bluster but a very real possibility.
And the escalation of war is visible.
Russia launched 55 missiles strikes across Ukraine Thursday, leaving 11 dead. The strikes come one day after the United States and Germany agreed to send tanks to Ukraine in an effort to aide the country. 47 of the 55 missiles were shot down according to Ukraine’s Air Force command.
Eleven lives were lost and another 11 were injured additionally leaving 35 buildings damaged in the wake of the attacks. According to The New York Times, Denys Shmyhal, said in a post on Telegram. “The main goal is energy facilities, providing Ukrainians with light and heat,” he said.
Ukraine is now demanding that they need F-16 fighter jets. In a post on twitter Ukrainian lawmaker, Oleksiy Goncharenko said, “Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.”
Morning. Missiles again over Ukraine. We need F16.

The US has abstained from sending advanced jets in the chances that a volatile decision could foster more dangerous attacks like former President Trump’s post on Truth referred to. If the US did authorize the decision to lend Ukraine the F-16 jets Netherlands’ foreign minister, Wopke Hoekstra, would be willing to supply them. According to The New York Times, Hoekstra told Dutch lawmakers, “We are open-minded… There are no taboos.”
F-16 fighter jets are complex to work on, they are not the average aircraft that can be learned in a matter of weeks. It can take months for pilots to learn how to fly these birds. European and US officials have the concern that Ukrainian forces could potentially use the jets to fly into Russian airspace and launch attacks on Russian soil.
Western allies are trying to avoid such a provocation, because that could lead to nuclear warfare in reference to what Putin has said he would do to defend his country.
