RAPID CITY, S.D., Feb. 17— Robert F. Kennedy Jr. pleaded guilty today to a felony charge of possessing heroin aboard an airline flight to Rapid City.
The 30-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy admitted he had two-tenths of a gram of heroin in his possession when he was taken off a Republic Airlines plane last Sept. 11.
John Fitzgerald, one of Mr. Kennedy's lawyers, said that at the time Mr. Kennedy ''was coming to South Dakota for treatment, realizing he had a problem'' with drugs.
Judge Marshall Young of State Circuit Court ordered a presentencing investigation by a Rapid City probation officer. Mr. Kennedy, who was released on a personal recognizance bond, will be sentenced March 16. Maximum Penalty Is 2 Years
The maximum penalty for a conviction is two years in jail and a $2,000 fine, but Rod Lefholz, state's attorney for Pennington County, said a first- time offense usually resulted in a suspended sentence.
Mr. Kennedy admitted himself to a New Jersey drug treatment center on Sept. 13, two days after the airliner incident, and was discharged Feb. 7 with no trace of drugs in his system, Mr. Fitzgerald told the court.
David Kennedy died of a heroin overdose as a young man during a family gathering at their Palm Beach mansion.. He was a nephew of Ted Kennedy.
no charges ever field against "the liberal lion" ..Teddy got away with murder.
And this forced him to not run for President in 1969, even though he would have easily won the Dem nomination and likely the general election due to the public's sympathy from his 2 brothers being assasinated. Prior to Mary Jo Kapechne's death, Teddy was way ahead of anyone else in the presidential polls.
So the death of Mary Jo Kapechne on Martha's Vineyard at the hands of Ted Kennedy definately changed the course of our nations' history.
And btw, kennedy was not charged with reckless driving, or even issued a traffic violation.
Rich liberals always seem to get away with their crimes.
Just like when Ted Kennedy killed Mary Jo Kapechne on Martha Vineyard in 1968.. left her to drown.
yes- that's drug, moron. DOH. Same as when Patrick Kennedy crashed into the Capitol Police checkpoint in Wash DC one night at 1 am- he was also overdosing on Ambien. He told the cops he was trying to get to a hearing at the Capitol.. again- at 1am.. LOL !
He say she will not give up his cell phone or his luxury cars to help the environment.
Just wants a lot of new laws passed to control people even more. (kennedy & his latest wife live in a $5 million mansion in Malibu CA. )
Michelle Fields ran into Robert F. Kennedy Jr. at the 'People's Climate March' in NYC. The two had a testy exchange and RFK Jr. revealed his climate rage when Michelle suggested his carbon footprint made him a hypocrite. See what happens when Michelle confronts him.
Another moonbat wack-job...

Kennedy Jr. on climate skeptics: ‘I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under’
New York City – Environmental activist Robert F. Kennedy Jr. lamented that there were no current laws on the books to punish global warming skeptics. . “I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under,” Kennedy told Climate Depot in a one-on-one interview during the People’s Climate March. The interiew was conducted for the upcoming documentary Climate Hustle.
Kennedy Jr. accused skeptical politicians of “selling out the public trust.” “Those guys are doing the Koch Brothers bidding and are against all the evidence of the rational mind, saying global warming does not exit. They are contemptible human beings. I wish there were a law you could punish them with. I don’t think there is a law that you can punish those politicians under.”
