Michael Skakel New Trial Hearing to be Televised
The hearing will center on a 2003 interview in which Gitano "Tony" Bryant reportedly implicated two friends in the 1975 bludgeoning of 15-year-old Martha Moxley in Greenwich.
Lawyers for Skakel, 47, the nephew of Ethel Kennedy, must prove Bryant's account surfaced after the trial and likely would have changed the verdict.
Robert Kennedy, Jr., and Skakel's original defense lawyer (and good TalkLeft pal) Mickey Sherman will be witnesses.
I expect there will be a lot of evidence presented about documents withheld by the prosecution in discovery.
Take for example, Gregory Coleman, the dead drug addict who for all intents and purposes was allowed to testify from the grave.
