Caroline Biden, a niece of former vice president Joe Biden, who was accused of stealing $110, 000 from a borrowed credit card, avoided jail Friday after she took a plea deal at the Manhattan Supreme Court in New York City, reports said. She was arrested May 5 after a criminal complaint was filed against her by an unidentified person who claimed Biden had stolen money using his credit card.

The court heard that Biden borrowed the credit card from someone she knew under the pretext of shopping. Instead, she used it to set up an unauthorized customer account in Bigelow Pharmacy on Sixth Avenue in Greenwich Village, The New York Post reported. The report also stated that the former vice president's niece used the credit card for over a year, with its bill amounting to $110, 000.

The 29-year-old pleaded guilty to one charge of grand larceny and another charge of petit larceny before Justice Kevin McGrath. During the court's proceedings, Biden agreed to make a restitution of the stolen money. In exchange for a plea deal, the judge sentenced Biden to two years in probation and ordered her to return the stolen money along with the condition that she stays away from any kind of legal troubles for at least a year, Breitbart reported.

The court also specified that Biden will be required to do 10 days of community service, an Associated Press report stated.

This is not the first time Biden has been involved in legal issues. She was earlier taken into custody in July 2013 for allegedly getting into an altercation with police officers who were trying to break up a fight between her and her roommate. She got physical with the police officers after they were summoned to her Tribeca apartment of Desbrosses Street, New York City, to solve a dispute between Biden and her roommate. "I shouldn't be handcuffed. You don't know who you are doing this to," Biden said at the time. She was later arrested on the charges of harassment, resisting arrest, and obstruction of justice.

Biden was, however, released after she received treatment for her anger problems.

Daughter of James Biden Sr., Caroline Biden was not a stranger to police officers. Prior to her 2013 encounter with the police, she was earlier, in 2009, arrested by Amtrak police for 'misunderstanding over a train fare.' Her uncle, former vice president Joe Biden, was a famous supporter of Amtrak and was known as “Amtrak Joe” for using the train to commute from Delaware to Washington, D.C., while a member of the U.S. Senate for 36 years, it was reported.
