CSAO: Statement re: Michael C. Skakel v. State of Connecticut

Statement concerning the Decision of the Connecticut Supreme Court in

Michael C. Skakel v. State of Connecticut

The State is pleased with the Courtís decision affirming the trial courtís denial of Mr. Skakelís request for a new trial, and hopefully sparing the Moxley family from any further ordeal. Despite numerous claims of newly discovered evidence, the majority of the Court has found nothing that undermines its confidence in the guilty verdict rendered by the jury in 2002.
