Mass murderer Charles Manson was denied parole Wednesday, April 11, 2012, and will most likely die in prison. According to a Los Angeles prosecutor Charles Manson is 77 years old and will only be eligible for another hearing in 15 years.
It’s very unlikely that there will be any more parole hearings for Mr. Manson. By the next chance he gets he will be 92 years old.
The California parole board said that they were convinced mainly by the comments Manson made to the prison psychologist. John Peck, a member of the parole panel, quoted Charles Manson stating, “I’m special.. I’m not like the average inmate,”. “I have spent my life in prison. I have put five people in the grave. I am a very dangerous man.”
Prior to the hearing Charles Mansons attorney, DeJon R. Lewis requested to see Manson transferred to Atascadero State Hospital from the state prison near Corcoran. However the board decided that Manson showed no signs of rehabilitation so he should remain in prison.
Manson did not attend the hearing although state officials concluded Manson was too great a danger to be released.
Twice in the last few years, Corcoran guards stated they had found the Manson in possession of a cellphone. In 2011 The Times reported The Murderer had called people in California, New Jersey and Florida with an LG flip phone that was discovered under his bunk in March 2009. A year later a second phone was found. According to officials thirty days were added to his sentence for the first offense.
Spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said that she and The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office would vigorously oppose Manson’s release.
A new photo released by the California prison system shows Manson with long, gray hair and a beard.
Manson is also know for his conviction for the murder of musician Gary Hinman in his Topanga Canyon home, as well as the slaying of former stuntman Donald Shea at the Spahn movie ranch in Chatsworth, where Manson had his commune.
Initially Manson was sentenced to death however a 1972 ruling by the California Supreme Court found the state’s death penalty law unconstitutional at the time. Mansons death sentence was than changed to 1977 to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
However it doesn’t look like they had any plan to grant him parole..
