Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel is out of jail after a judge threw out his 2002 murder conviction. 

Skakel spent more than eleven years behind bars for the 1975 murder of Martha Moxley.  Moxley's murder happened when both Skakel and Moxley were 15 years old. 

 Skakel's bond was set at more than a million dollars after his conviction was overturned. 

A judge ruled Skakel received ineffective counsel during his trial.   (Metro Networks Inc.)
