Caroline Giuliani, the 21-year-old daughter of former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, appeared in Criminal Court this morning to face shoplifting charges, but it was a quick visit, because she made a deal with the Manhattan DA's office. According to City Room, the Harvard student was "offered...an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal, meaning that if she serves a day of community service and stays out of trouble for six months, the case against her will be dismissed."

The Daily News reports that she was "dressed in a gray dress and silver high heels" with "flowing blond locks" and that she "jutted her chin and walked out without a word, flanked by her mother, Donna Hanover, and stepdad, Edwin Oster," ignoring questions from the media. Her lawyer added, "We are not going to have a comment for the press."

The prosecutors said that she had $100.50 worth of items on her when she was detained at an Upper East Side Sephora store; they also said the deal was similar to other ones made with first-time shoplifters. The judge told her, "Stay out of trouble and avoid re-arrest." Well, little Caroline goes back to school tomorrow, so we'll see!
