Connecticut's highest court has reinstated the murder conviction of Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel.

 

State prosecutors had asked the state Supreme Court to reinstate the 2002 murder conviction against Skakel in the bludgeoning death of Martha Moxley when they were teenage neighbors in wealthy Greenwich.

 

It wasn't immediately clear if Skakel will be sent back to prison or allowed to remain free if he appeals or asks the high court to reconsider. His lawyer, Hubert Santos, said he was reviewing the ruling and had no immediate comment.

 

Connecticut's highest court heard arguments in February on whether Skakel should get a new trial or be sent back to prison for the murder, which took place in 1975.

 

Skakel, a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy's widow, Ethel, was freed on $1.2 million bail in 2013 when a lower court judge ordered a new trial after finding that Skakel's trial attorney failed to adequately represent him. He had been sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.

 

Skakel, 55, was seated in the gallery of the courtroom for the hearing, as was his cousin Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

 

Judge Thomas Bishop ruled that Skakel likely would have been acquitted if his trial lawyer, Michael Sherman, had focused more on his brother Thomas Skakel. Sherman has defended his work on the case.

Anyone who lives in Mass. for a long period of time is interested. As you are bombarded with Trump have some pity for those of us who were carpet bombed by the Kennedy family for 50+ years. John Kerry and his antics are known to the old timers too. JFK in his official portrait is on the wall of the VFW up here. Is there anyone who hasn't been to the compound. It's too bad what happened to Joan. She was a beautiful woman. There is little that is not known about them by a good portion of the population permanently residing in the Peoples Comm. of Mass.
