Biden’s niece shows remorse after avoiding jail in credit card scam

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s once unruly niece has apparently grown up. Caroline Biden, 31, offered a heartfelt apology and promised that her wild child ways were behind her Wednesday

For nearly a year, Caroline Biden, 31, used an unidentified victim’s Chase credit card at Bigelow’s pharmacy, the New York Post reported.

According to prosecutors, the victim had given Biden permission to make a $672 purchase with the card. But Biden then used the card to open a customer account at the Manhattan shop without the cardholder’s approval and racked up the tab over a year.

"I not only acknowledge my conduct and take responsibility, but deeply regret the harm caused."

“I not only acknowledge my conduct and take responsibility, but deeply regret the harm caused,” she told the judge.

Biden insisted that she had “made amends” and would not repeat her mistakes.

In June 2017, Biden admitted to grand larceny and petty larceny, with an agreement to get two years’ probation if she repaid the money, worked 10 days of community service and avoided re-arrest for a year.

She completed 10 days of community service at a children’s hospital and repaid more than $110,000 in restitution.

Biden told the New York judge she’s still working with the volunteer program because she loves the children and it’s been very fulfilling.

Biden was charged in 2013 with hitting a police officer during a dispute with her roommate. She got anger management treatment, and the case was dismissed.
