“He goes to AA meetings, and he behaves himself because he doesn’t want to get into trouble again, but he travels a lot.

“He goes to Oregon because he has relatives there and to New York, where his son lives. He also goes to the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Mass., occasionally.”

Skakel — the now 59-year-old nephew of Ethel and the late Robert F. Kennedy — was found guilty in June 2002 of murdering 15-year old Martha in 1975 and sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.
