Roger Clinton Jr. is the only child of car salesman Roger Clinton Sr. and nurse Virginia Dell Cassidy. As a child, Bill Clinton (then Bill Blythe) often had to protect young Roger from his alcoholic and periodically abusive father. From a brief relationship with Martha Spivey, he has a daughter named Macy (b. 1992). He became a musician and formed a rock band named "Dealer's Choice." Clinton married Molly D'Ann Martin on March 26, 1994. Their son Tyler Cassidy Clinton was born on May 12, 1994.

Music career

Clinton developed his singing career under the direction of Arkansas' music impresario and manager Butch Stone. He gained professional experience by singing warm-ups for the studio audiences at tapings of the sitcom Designing Women, as well as by working as a lounge singer. As a result of a deal struck by Stone and music-industry attorney Stann Findelle, Clinton was initially contracted to Atlantic Records in 1992. His first album, Nothing Good Comes Easy, was released in September 1993 on the Pyramid/Atlantic/Rhino label. In December 1999, Clinton and his band paid a visit to Pyongyang, performing alongside North and South Korean musical acts.

Conviction and pardon

During his brother's presidential campaign and subsequent administration, Clinton was given the codename "Headache" by the Secret Service due to his controversial behavior. In January 2001, before his brother left office, Clinton was granted a controversial presidential pardon for a 1985 cocaine possession conviction for which he had served a year in prison. The pardon allowed for the conviction to be expunged from his criminal record.

DUI arrests

Roger Clinton pleaded guilty in August 2001 to a misdemeanor count of reckless driving after Hermosa Beach city prosecutors agreed to drop two DUI charges and one count of disturbing the peace against him. He was sentenced then to two years probation, ordered not to drive with any alcohol or drugs in his system and to pay about $1,350 in fines and costs.

On June 5, 2016, Roger Clinton was arrested for driving under the influence in the seaside city of Redondo Beach, about 20 miles south of downtown Los Angeles, California. Since it has been more than ten years since his first DUI, according to California state law, this arrest was also treated as a first-time DUI. Clinton pleaded no-contest to the charge of driving while impaired. The charge of driving with a BAC of 0.08% or higher was dismissed. As part of his plea agreement, he was sentenced to three years probation for the DUI, and two days in jail for refusing a chemical test. He was ordered to pay a $390 fine (which increases to nearly $2,000 when penalty assessments, court fees, and other fines are added) and was also ordered to attend a nine-month alcohol program - the most a first-time offender can get - because his BAC measured 0.230% and 0.237% in a preliminary alcohol screening. In addition, because his arrest occurred in Los Angeles County, under the terms of Assembly Bill 91, the DMV will also require that he install an Ignition interlock device in all vehicles he owns for a minimum of 5 months.
