KENNEDY cousin MICHAEL SKAKEL’s lawyer told a panel of Connecticut judges that his client’s 20-year to life prison sentence for beating his teen neighbor to death with a golf club in 1975 was “excessive”.
Skakel claims to be “baffled” by the legal process and pleaded with the judges to allow “the truth” to come out.
He told the judges he prays for the slain girl’s mother every day.
The hearing today was only an appeal on the length of the Skakel’s sentence, and NOT an appeal of the murder conviction.
