NEW YORK (AP) - Caroline Kennedy will sit on a New York City jury for the trial of a man accused of dealing crack cocaine.
    
She was selected Monday to serve as a juror at the trial of Nelson Chatman in state Supreme Court in Manhattan.
    
The only surviving child of President John F. Kennedy and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis didn't mention whether any member of her family had been a victim of a crime.
    
When asked if she or a family member had close ties to law enforcement, Kennedy said her brother once worked as an assistant district attorney. The late John F. Kennedy Jr. had worked in the Manhattan DA's office.
    
In response to another question, she said she knew "a few people" with a drug problem.
