Kennedy arrested after party to attend diversion program

BARNSTABLE, Mass. (AP) — A Kennedy family member charged with disorderly conduct after police responded to a noisy party is being sent to a pretrial diversion program.

Caroline Rose Kennedy was set to be arraigned in Barnstable on Wednesday, but her hearing was rescheduled for March pending her completion of the program.

Officials say case against the 22-year-old granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy will be dismissed if she successfully completes the program.

The program is offered to young first-time defendants facing certain minor offenses and includes community service, among other things.

Kennedy and her father Max Kennedy were arrested at a Hyannis (hy-AN'-ihs) Port home in August. Prosecutors dismissed the disorderly conduct charge against Max Kennedy and he paid a $150 fine for a noise violation.
