Finally, Justice For Mary Jo Kopechne
7/18/09 - 40 years ago, on July 18, 1969, a car driven by Ted Kennedy veered off a bridge on Chappaquiddick Island and into the waters near Martha's Vineyard ... killing his traveling companion, Mary Jo Kopechne, 28, who was trapped in the overturned vehicle and drowned.
Kennedy did not contact police until the next day. He later pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident, and was given a two-month suspended jail sentence.
