Kerry Kennedy expected to testify in her NY trial

Posted: Updated:

The lawyer defending Kerry Kennedy against a drugged-driving charge in New York says so far, the witnesses are helping his case. And those are the prosecution witnesses.

Now he'll let Kennedy herself try to convince a jury to acquit her. He says he expects her to testify Wednesday.

Kennedy was charged after her Lexus swerved into a tractor-trailer on an interstate highway in 2012. Blood tests detected a sleeping drug, and she said she accidentally took an Ambien instead of her daily thyroid pill.

On Tuesday, the prosecution's toxicology expert said she doesn't know whether Kennedy would have realized she was driving erratically after taking the sleeping pill. That seemed to undercut the prosecution's claim that Kennedy should have pulled over as she felt the drug's effects.
