NEW YORK (AP) — The New York jury on which Caroline Kennedy served has acquitted a man of dealing crack cocaine.

Kennedy was juror No. 7 at the trial of Harlem resident Nelson Chatman.

It took the Manhattan state Supreme Court jury about one hour to find Chatman not guilty.

The only surviving child of President John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Kennedy is a lawyer and author. She was selected to sit on the jury last week.

Chatman's lawyer had argued there wasn't enough evidence to tie his client to the alleged crime.
