MONTGOMERY COUNTY, PA – According to documents obtained by The Published Reporter through Pennsylvania state records, Joe Biden’s niece, Caroline Nicole Biden, 33, has received a minimum twenty-day jail sentence for her arrest in August 2019 for driving under the influence, careless driving and driving without a license, according to court records.

Caroline, the daughter of Joe Biden’s brother James Biden, had her DUI case crawl through the judicial system after she was busted on driving under the influence of what an officer described as “an intoxicating substance to such a degree that she was incapable of safely operating a motor vehicle,” adding that the officer noted that Caroline “had difficulty focusing in the car” and police found pill bottles for carisoprodol and lorazepam, both of which are controlled substances.

Her arraignment was conveniently delayed and set for November 4, one day after the presidential election. According to the New York Post which originally reported on her arrest being delayed earlier this year, a Norristown attorney with experience in DUI cases said the length of time for her arraignment to be scheduled seemed unusual, “I find it unusual that it would be that far into the future,” said Mike Gottlieb.
