Leslie Van Houten, who, at 19 was the youngest member of the Charles Manson clan to receive a life sentence for her role in the killings of the LaBiancas in 1969, has successfully convinced the California Parole Board that she should be granted parole at the age of 66.



All that is required now is for Governor Jerry Brown to sign off on it.

I think he should. She was a confused, misguided teenager caught up in the psychedelic fervor of the late 60's and under the spell of a Machiavellian Svengali, who exploited her youthful naiveté and conned her into doing something totally out of character for her.

Plus, she had a somewhat minor roll in the incident, which by itself is meaningless, but added together with her exemplary behavior as a prisoner, her work helping other inmates over the years, having bettered herself by earning multiple college degrees while incarcerated, her youth and vulnerability due to her family situation at the time of the murders, and the fact that the risk posed to society by releasing her is almost nil, I think should allow her to live out what few years she has left under supervision in some kind of group home, where her time would be more productively spent, and society would be better served and repaid, by her volunteering to counsel at risk youth.

What say you all?

I agree. A young girl, at that time in history, is easy to influence.
She's payed her debt to society and then some.

You should've posted a young, hot picture of her.  You'd get more support for your position.
 

 
I actually think she should've been released years ago---at least by the late 90s.  I think she came to her senses pretty quickly, and always seemed remorseful.

I think she should be granted parole. She has matured for the better and clearly regrets her role in The Manson Murders. It's not like she is Susan Smith, Dee Dee Moore or Yolanda Saldivar who murdered in cold blood and then had the nerve to lie about how their victims died and smile when talking about/hearing about the victims' deaths.

BTW I agree with you, she should go free. I'm just busting your chops. A little light hearted humor with ya.

I find bananas gross. Speaking of bananas, Charles is coincidentally bananas! He is one sick individual!

Charles Manson is who I was talking about when I said bananas, not Charlie Sheen, though Charlie Sheen is reportedly not completely okay either(Charlie reportedly kept having unprotected sex even after he knew he had HIV, that is scummy if it is true)

Yep.  Today's my day off.  Yet I get up at 4am, anyway.  Go figure.  I'll probably go back to bed for a little while, though.  Then I'll get up and find some reason to go out.  It's gonna be in the 70s and sunny today, and I'm itchin' to drive around topless.
