Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel was granted bail Thursday and expected to be released from prison while prosecutors in Connecticut appeal a ruling giving him a new trial in the 1975 slaying of neighbor Martha Moxley.

Skakel, the 53-year-old nephew of Robert F. Kennedy's widow, Ethel, touched his hand to his chest and looked back at his supporters in the courtroom, his brothers among them, as the judge set bail at $1.2 million. He has been in prison more than 11 years on a sentence of 20 years to life but his lawyers said bail would be posted immediately – meaning that he would be freed shortly after the hearing in Stamford Superior Court.

Conor's father, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., was also arrested, as was the actress Daryl Hannah and Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune.

Taylor Swift's New Beau: Conor Kennedy?

Oops, wrong Kennedy!

Over the Fourth of July, Taylor Swift was photographed hugging Patrick Schwarzenegger, Maria Shriver's son. But now it appears that Conor Kennedy, the son of Robert Kennedy Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy, is actually Taylor's love interest. He is pictured just to the right of Swift in the same photo – and the two have been spending lots of time together.

On July 25, Swift, 22, and Kennedy, 18, enjoyed slices at Kennedy family favorite Marcella's Pizza in his hometown, Mount Kisco, N.Y., and "walked out hand-in-hand," according to a source. Earlier that day, Kennedy was appointed as the administrator of his late mom's $2.1 million-plus estate, according to the Boston Herald.

Days later, the pair grabbed pizza again and visited with his grandmother, Ethel Kennedy. And on July 29, they lunched with friends at Baxter's on Cape Cod where she ate chicken fingers and sat next to Kennedy. Swift "was smiling a lot and she looked happy," says an observer.
