    He won't be locked up as long as he deserves to be, but at least it's something.

    From the New York Times
    DEC. 30, 2016


    In the latest twist in a case that has been full of them, the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the murder conviction of Michael C. Skakel, who was found guilty in 2002 of bludgeoning a teenage neighbor with a golf club, should be reinstated.

    The court said in making its ruling that Mr. Skakelís original lawyer had, despite accusations to the contrary, represented him effectively.
    The decision could send Mr. Skakel back to prison to finish a prison term of 20 years to life. He had spent more than a decade behind bars before he was released in 2013 when a judge vacated his original sentence.

    Officials want Kennedy cousin back in prison

    In Mondayís petition to the Supreme Court, prosecutor James Killen wrote the courtís usual practice is to rule on a request to reconsider a decision within weeks, and itís not clear why it is taking so long. ďThe petitioner has enjoyed more than a year of additional freedom from serving his sentence, with only the most minimal restrictions on his liberty,Ē Killen wrote.

    Officials: Revoke Skakel bail

    Prosecutors appealed the lower court ruling to the state Supreme Court, which reinstated the conviction in December 2016 in a 4-3 ruling. Skakel’s lawyers asked the high court to reconsider the decision — a request that remains pending.

    Supreme Court, With New Justice, Allows Michael Skakel To Remain Free, At Least For Now

    http://www.courant.com/news/connecti...222-story.html

    The state Supreme Court, in a rebuff to prosecutors, has ruled that accused killer Michael Skakel can remain free on bail while the court considers his most recent appeal.

    The Supreme Court denied the prosecutionís request to return Skakel to prison without elaboration in a one-sentence order made public Thursday.
