California Board Grants Parole To Leslie Van Houten, The Youngest Charles Manson's Murderous Followers

The California board has granted Leslie Van Houten, the youngest of Charles Manson's murderous followers granted parole. Van Houten, who was 19 when she killed for Manson during a series of murders that terrorized Los Angeles over the summer of 1969, appeared before a parole panel for the 21st time.

The decision now goes through a process of review in which Gov. Jerry Brown may uphold, reverse or modify the decision. He could also send the matter to the full Board of Parole Hearings, or take no action, in which case the parole decision would stand.

A similar panel at the California Institution for Women in Chino, where Van Houten is incarcerated, granted her parole last year but was overruled by the governor. Since she was incarcerated more than 40 years ago, Van Houten has been a model prisoner and earned college degrees.

Members of the Tate and La Bianca families have argued repeatedly, however, against granting parole to her or any other Manson follower who took part in the killings. None has been freed, and one, Susan Atkins, died in prison in 2009. Manson, now 82, remains behind bars.
