Hi chalky: Skakel's trial for the murder of Moxley began in May of 2002, and on June 7, 2002 the jury returned a verdict of guilty. Skakel was sentenced to from 20 years to life in prison. He is a nephew of Ethel Kennedy (The late Robert's wife). The Kennedy money couldn't buy him out of this one! A murderer is a murderer despite what class of society they come from! Take care. angel

Hi Angel..

I found the the film interesting, it seems it was because of the book written by - Mark Fuhrman -dedication or for money - that Skakel was brought to trial....with the evidence he gathered there was no choice but to go ahead....

Fuhrman worked as a LAPD officer on the OJ case...left the force in disgrace....apparently....there were a few things the film didn't cover....

Moxley calls Skakel story 'startling'
By Hoa Nguyen and Neil Vigdor - Stamford Advocate
News that Michael Skakel's attorneys will ask for a new trial based on an interview with Kobe Bryant's cousin -- who reportedly implicates two childhood friends in the murder of Martha Moxley -- has caused a stir among people close to the case.

Dorthy Moxley, mother of the 15-year-old girl who was slain in Belle Haven nearly 28 years ago, said she read the story on the Internet.

"It's a little startling, to say the least," Moxley said. "I think we just have to wait until they present their motion in court."

Moxley said the fact that Skakel's attorneys were seeking a new trial wasn't in itself surprising.

"I think you realize when you're in a situation like this that it doesn't go away," she said. "You're always ready for something."

The Hartford Courant reported yesterday that the attorneys handling Skakel's appeal intend to clear their client by submitting as new evidence a 90-minute videotaped interview with Gitano "Tony" Bryant, a cousin of Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant, who is a defendant in his own criminal case.

Tony Bryant, a classmate of Skakel's at the private Brunswick School in Greenwich, is reported in The Courant to have said he went to Belle Haven the night of the murder with two friends who talked of attacking a girl "caveman style." After telling them he didn't want a part in their plans, Bryant said, he left on a train at about 9 p.m. to return to his home in the Bronx, N.Y., The Courant reported.

Bryant's friends, who he said were carrying Skakel's golf clubs on the night of the murder, admitted their role in the attack to Bryant days later, according to Bryant, who when reached for comment said he stood behind his statement, the newspaper reported.

The Courant, who did not name Bryant's friends because it could not reach them, confirmed the contents of Bryant's story with another Brunswick classmate, Tres Mills.
