PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- Cybill Shepherd’s son has appeared in court in Philadelphia on charges he stole money and other items from fellow airline passengers.
Cyrus Shepherd-Oppenheim is a University of Pennsylvania student from Sebastopol, Calif. Police say he stole cash, a camera and other items from carry-on luggage during a cross-country United Airlines flight last month.
A judge Thursday set an April 20 trial date on theft and related charges.
Defense lawyer William J. Brennan says similar cases often end with a pretrial diversion program. He says it appears the two victims left the flight with all their belongings.
The 22-year-old Shepherd-Oppenheim is the son of the “Moonlighting” star and her ex-husband, chiropractor Bruce Oppenheim.
