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.

Rep. Patrick McHenry Announces Retirement, Adding to Congressional Exodus
Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., has declared that he will not seek re-election, becoming the latest in a growing list of lawmakers departing from Congress. McHenry, a close ally of former House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, stated that he believes “there is a season for everything,” signaling the end of his tenure in the House. Having served since 2005, McHenry is the 37th member of Congress to announce they won’t seek re-election in 2024.
In a statement, McHenry reflected on the significance of the House of Representatives in the American political landscape, calling it the “center of our American republic.” He acknowledged the concerns about the future of the institution due to multiple departures but expressed confidence that new leaders would emerge and guide the House through its next phase.
The departure of McHenry and others comes against the backdrop of political shifts and challenges within the Republican Party. The GOP has faced setbacks in recent elections, including fallout from the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.
Internal strife and disagreements, exemplified by the rebellion against McCarthy, have characterized the party’s dynamics. The GOP’s approval rating stands at 30%, with a disapproval rating of 66%, reflecting the challenges and divisions within the party.
As McHenry steps aside, questions loom over the fate of open seats in the upcoming election. The nonpartisan Cook Political Report identifies five open House seats as potential Democrat pickup opportunities, while none are listed for the GOP. The departures raise concerns about the party’s unity and ability to navigate the evolving political landscape.
With a total of 20 departing Democratic legislators and 10 Republicans, the changing composition of Congress adds complexity to the political dynamics leading up to the 2024 elections. As McHenry emphasizes a hopeful view of the House’s future, the evolving political landscape will determine the impact of these departures on the balance of power in Congress.
