After appealing his case for years Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel is getting a new trial.

Skakel was sentenced to 20 years to life in prison for murdering his Connecticut neighbor Martha Moxley in 1975.

Skakel's attorney didn't adequately represent him when he was convicted in 2002 and called the case weak.

Prosecutors say they plan to appeal.
