Alexandra Kerry is off the hook in her DUI case and won't face any criminal charges, Los Angeles prosecutors said Monday.

"We reviewed the arrest report and have declined to file criminal charges due to insufficient evidence," says L.A. City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan.

The daughter of Sen. John Kerry was pulled over in Hollywood on Nov. 19 for an expired registration, her father's spokesperson said.

Officers conducted a DUI investigation, but Kerry's breathalyzer test results at the station were under the legal limit, the rep added.

"I’m grateful that this ends a public episode we all wish had been avoided entirely or handled privately," Sen. Kerry said in a statement. "While she regrets driving with an expired registration, and takes full responsibility for it, that mistake should never have been compounded by erroneous reports suggesting she was driving drunk."
