Robert F. Kennedy’s nephew Michael Skakel was denied parole on Wednesday, the first time he has applied for it since being convicted in 2002. Skakel is currently serving a sentence of 20 years to life for the 1975 murder of his neighbor Martha Moxley in Greenwich, Conn. They were both 15 years old at the time. Skakel was tried and convicted of the crime 27 years later. He is now 52 and has served 10 years of his sentence. Skakel still claims he is innocent.
