Robert F. Kennedy
Michael Skakel will remain in jail, but has been granted the possibility of getting out on bail while he awaits a second trial in the 1975 murder of neighbor Martha Moxley, CBS 2’s Lou Young reported.
Skakel, who has lost a series of appeals over the years and a bid for parole last year, is hoping to get out of prison through a writ of habeas corpus arguing he was deprived of his constitutional right to effective legal representation when Michael Sherman was his attorney.
The ruling came from Judge John Donohue, who heard the case without a jury. At issue was whether Kennedy broke the law when he tried to take his two-day old child out of a Westchester County hospital.
A Connecticut parole board rejected Skakel’s request following a two-hour hearing Wednesday in which he proclaimed he is innocent.
