Manson Follower Leslie Van Houten Granted Parole

A panel on Wednesday recommended for the second time that Leslie Van Houten, a follower of Charles Manson, be granted parole.

"State officials will begin a 120-day legal review of the panel's finding, and after the process concludes, the decision goes to Brown".

Post her arrest after the La Bianca murders in December 1969, Van Houten provided adequate information about the Manson family.

Van Houten, now 68, didn't take part in the first night's killings of Tate and four others.

She admitted to killing Los Angeles grocer Leno La Bianca and his wife, Rosemary, in their home in August 1969. Last year, Van Houten was also granted parole, only to have Brown overturn the decision.

A convicted murderer and follower of Charles Manson is once again on the verge of walking free.

On the night of the attack almost five decades ago, she said she held Rosemary LaBianca down with a pillowcase over her head as others stabbed her dozens of times. Manson, who is now 82, still remains behind bars. Many others, including the families of the victims, oppose her release.

Van Houten discussed her childhood with the two panelists: from her parents' divorce when she was 14 to her years as a high school outcast who experimented with LSD at age 15. "I don't find parts in any of this that makes me feel the slightest bit good about myself".

Another Manson follower, Catherine Share, was put on the witness stand by Van Houten's attorney to testify that Van Houten was young, impressionable and too afraid to leave Manson's cult, and said she regretted encouraging Van Houten to join Manson's group of followers.

Van Houten was both the youngest and also seemingly the most unlikely member of Manson's so-called family.

Debra is a devout and vigilant opponent of Charles Manson and all of his convicted associates ever getting parole, going to great lengths to protest whenever any of them has a parole hearing.
