LOS ANGELES — California's attorney general says a judge should deny the latest appeal of assassin Sirhan Sirhan saying the man long-convicted in the murder of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy hasn't proved his innocence.
In a 46-page reply brief issued Wednesday, Attorney General Kamala Harris says Sirhan's latest appeal is speculative, untimely and procedurally unsound.
Lawyers representing Sirhan filed the appeal late last year alleging a bullet was switched in evidence at his trial and that new forensic details exonerated him from the 1968 killing.
Sirhan, now in his late 60s, was denied parole at a hearing last March where he denied any memory of shooting Kennedy at a Los Angeles hotel moments after he claimed victory in California's Democratic presidential primary.
All of his appeals have been turned down.
