Douglas Kennedy acquitted in hospital case

Nov. 21, 2012 at 2:59 PM   |   Comments

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Douglas Kennedy, youngest son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, was acquitted in a White Plains, N.Y., court of harassment and child endangerment charges.

He was accused of twisting a nurse's arm and kicking another nurse in an incident in January, captured on security video, at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco, N.Y., as he tried to leave the hospital maternity ward holding his newborn son.

The verdict of acquittal came Tuesday, CNN reported. Kennedy's lawyers contended he merely wanted to take the baby outsides for "fresh air," and that the staff overreacted.
