NEW YORK (PIX11) — Caroline Kennedy has saved an accused drug dealer from more jail time.

The former first daughter was recently selected to serve jury duty on a case where 31-year-old Nelson Chatman was accused of selling four nickel bag crack rocks to an undercover police officer.

On Monday, Kennedy, along with her fellow jurors, took about 75 minutes to deliberate and ultimately acquit the Harlem man in the 2011 case.

Despite dodging extra jail time, Chatman remains behind bars due to an outstanding parole warrant.
