Conor Kennedy Pleads Guilty In Aspen Fight
Conor Kennedy pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor on Wednesday, stemming from a fight he had in late December that resulted in Kennedy being arrested at the Bootsy Bellows night club in Aspen, Colorado, Gossip Cop confirms.
As Gossip Cop reported at the time, local police were called to the hotspot where the ex-boyfriend of Taylor Swift was seen holding onto another man’s shirt as he repeatedly punched him. According to the police report, Kennedy told the cops the victim “called my friend the f-word.” The 22-year-old grandson of Robert F. Kennedy was then booked for disorderly conduct at the Pitkin County Jail and later released.
Kennedy was not present at the Aspen Municipal Court this week when his lawyer entered the guilty plea in exchange for a six-month deferred sentence. Under the agreement, if Kennedy stays out of trouble for the next half-year, the plea will be removed from his record. If he doesn’t, Kennedy could get sent to jail. Additionally, Kennedy must refrain from drugs and alcohol for the next six months and not only pay the victim $500 in restitution, but also pen an apology letter.
This is actually Kennedy’s second scrape with the law. In 2013, he and his father, Robert Kennedy Jr., were arrested for tying themselves to the White House’s gate, where they protested the Keystone XL oil pipeline. At the time, they were slammed with summonses for failure to obey lawful orders and disperse.
