A lawyer for Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel told a panel of Connecticut judges Tuesday that his client's 20-years-to-life prison sentence for killing his teen neighbor in 1975 was excessive.

Skakel, who was convicted in 2002 of beating 15-year-old Martha Moxley to death with a golf club in wealthy Greenwich, also addressed the court, saying, "I didn't commit this crime."

Skakel's lawyer told a three-judge panel that Skakel was 15 at the time and would have been tried in juvenile court where the maximum sentence would have been four years.
