Skakel Appeal
Michael Skakel, right, reacts with his attorney Jessica Santos during a hearing in Rockville Superior court Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013, in Vernon, Conn., to determine if he can be released while awaiting a new trial in the 1975 slaying of neighbor Martha Moxley. Judge Thomas Bishop ordered a new trial for Skakel last month, saying his trial attorney, Michael Sherman, failed to adequately represent him in 2002 when Skakel was found guilty. The judge said Skakel cannot be released immediately while he awaits a new trial, but he did lift a stay, which could clear the way for Skakel to seek bail later. (AP Photo/Fred Beckham, Pool)
