    Caroline Kennedy will sit on a Manhattan jury of an accused crack dealer.

    She was selected Monday to serve as a juror at the trial of Nelson Chatman in state Supreme Court.

    The only surviving child of President John F. Kennedy and the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis didn't mention whether any member of her family had been a victim of a crime.

    When asked if she or any member of her family 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.
