GREENWICH, Conn. -- Former Greenwich resident Michael Skakel, recently freed from prison, has received permission to travel out-of-state, according to a Patch report.

Stamford’s Superior Count required him to wear a monitoring device and not leave Connecticut. However, the court is allowing him to visit his son in New York, according to the story.

His 2002 conviction for the murder of Martha Moxley in 1975 was overturned on the grounds of incompetence by his lawyer. Prosecutors will appeal the ruling, according to the article.

What this shows is that the American public can never trust a guilty verdict. The verdict is only as good as the lawyer, the jury, the judge and the entire judicial system. As Lenny Bruce said:"The only justice in the halls of justice is in the halls".
