Kennedy cousin Skakel granted permission to travel

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel has been granted permission to travel to see his son in New York and other relatives in Oregon.

Skakel was released from prison last month after he was granted a new trial in the 1975 slaying of neighbor Martha Moxley.

He was ordered to remain in Connecticut unless granted permission to travel outside the state. Court records show his request on Dec. 9 to visit his son and an earlier request to visit relatives in Oregon for Thanksgiving were granted.

Skakel had been in prison more than 11 years on a sentence of 20 years to life.

A judge ruled in October that Skakel's trial attorney failed to adequately represent him. The Connecticut Supreme Court will decide an appeal by prosecutors of that ruling.
