WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. —

New York prosecutors are asking a judge to deny a motion to dismiss a drugged-driving case against Kerry Kennedy, the ex-wife of Gov. Andrew Cuomo.

In court documents made available Tuesday, prosecutors argue that Kennedy's case should move forward as it would for other first-time offenders.

Lawyers for Kennedy had argued in a motion filed in North Castle Town Court last month that she had accidently taken a sleeping pill on July 13, 2012, before she swerved into a tractor-trailer on a highway and was arrested.

But prosecutors argue that a trial should be held to determine whether Kennedy accidentally took the pill.

A lawyer for Kennedy says he'll respond to the motion this month.

Kennedy is the seventh of 11 children of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy.
