Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel walks out of court in Connecticut and heads back home for the first time in 11 years.

A judge released Skakel today on a $1.2 million dollars bail.

This after his 2002 conviction in the 1975 murder of his neighbor, Martha Moxley was thrown out last month.

The judge ruled Skakel's former attorney didn't provide an adequate defense and gave him a new trial.

Moxely's family is disappointed by the decision to grant Skakel bail.

As conditions of the bail, the judge ordered that Skakel live in Connecticut and wear a GPS tracking device.
