Skakel Granted Request To Relocate GPS Device

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, who was released from prison last year after he was granted a new trial in the 1975 slaying of a neighbor, has received approval to have a GPS tracking device temporarily relocated from his ankle while he attends his son’s ski competition.

Skakel says during an earlier ski competition this month he was unable to accompany his son up the mountain with other parents because his ankle couldn’t fit in the ski boot with the bracelet. As a result, he was required to hike up the mountain alone, which took two to three hours and induced an asthma attack.

Skakel received approval at the discretion of a probation officer to have the bracelet relocated on his body later this month so he can ski alongside his son.
