Governor Disappointed:- Manson Family member released from prison


More than half a century after a series of murders in Los Angeles, a former supporter of cult leader Charles Manson has been released. Leslie Van Houten, 73, was released on Tuesday under “probation supervision”, according to the competent correctional authority. Earlier, a court of appeal ruled that Van Houten was allowed to leave prison. California Governor Gavin Newsom said he was disappointed. At the same time, he said he would not appeal the decision.

In 1969, members of the “Manson Family” murdered seven people on behalf of their leader Charles Manson.

The most famous victim was the heavily pregnant actress Sharon Tate, wife of director Roman Polanski.

Van Houten was not involved in this act, but was involved in the murder of businessman Leno LaBianca and his wife. She was sentenced to life imprisonment, which she is serving to date.

A parole board had recommended her release five times since 2016. Each time, Newsom or his predecessor Edmund Brown Jr. this. Newsom could have gone before the West Coast State Supreme Court, but decided not to.

Accomplice Susan Atkins died of cancer in 2009 after 38 years behind bars. Charles Manson also died in prison in 2017 at the age of 83. Patricia Krenwinkel (75) is still incarcerated.
