Former Hobe Sound resident and Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel, who was released from prison last year after he was granted a new trial in the 1975 slaying of a neighbor, has received approval to have a GPS tracking device temporarily relocated from his ankle while he attends his son’s ski competition.

During an earlier ski competition this month, Skakel was unable to accompany his son up the mountain with other parents because his ankle couldn’t fit in the ski boot with the bracelet, his attorneys said in court papers. As a result, they said he was required to hike up the mountain alone, which took two to three hours and induced an asthma attack.
