RFK son invokes father's death at NY court date
Douglas Kennedy, son of RFK, invokes father's assassination at NY child endangerment case
By The Associated Press

MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. (AP) ' The son of Sen. Robert Kennedy is invoking his father's assassination in a case stemming from his attempt to take his newborn son from a New York hospital.

Douglas Kennedy said outside a suburban courthouse Thursday that his own father was taken from him when he was a baby. Kennedy is charged with endangering the baby and physically harassing two nurses in the Jan. 7 incident. He has pleaded not guilty.

He said all he wanted to do that night was to hold his baby in his arms.

Two nurses at Northern Westchester Hospital say Kennedy hurt them as they tried to prevent him from leaving with the baby. He says he wanted to take the baby out for fresh air.

A state investigation found no evidence of child abuse.
