Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel was granted bail Thursday and is expected to be released from prison while prosecutors in Connecticut appeal a ruling giving him a new trial in the 1975 slaying of neighbor Martha Moxley.
Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel was granted a new trial on Wednesday by a Connecticut judge who ruled his attorney failed to adequately represent him when he was convicted in 2002 of killing his neighbor in 1975.
Prosecutors urged a judge on Thursday to dismiss Michael Skakel's latest challenge of his 2002 murder conviction, saying the Kennedy cousin's claim that his trial attorney did a poor job should have been raised in an earlier appeal and that many of the issues he cites were rejected previously.
Mr. Santos also argued that prosecutors were highly unlikely to win their appeal, a contention prosecutors dispute.
Skakel's current attorney, Hubert Santos, said he expects to file a motion for bail on Thursday.
