The niece of former Vice President Joe Biden has avoided jail time after cutting a plea deal in a New York court after she stole over $100,000 in a credit card scam, 100% Fed Up reports.
Caroline Biden, 30, took a plea bargain at the Manhattan Supreme Court in New York and admitted guilt for using a borrowed credit card to go on a shopping spree, according to a New York Post report.
Biden created an unauthorized customer account using the borrowed credit card and racked up a $110,810 bill over the course of a year, according to court documents.
As part of a plea deal, Biden pleaded guilty to one charge of grand larceny and one charge of petit larceny and will make restitution of $110,810.04.
Had she been tried normally, she would have spent up to one year in prison. Instead she’s been sentenced to two years probation if she keeps her nose clean and pays everything back.
Biden’s wild niece asked to borrow a credit card from the victim, who was not named in the criminal complaint, to purchase an item for $672.
