Manson Family Member Leslie Approved For Parole, 48 Years After Brutal Murders

Leslie Van Houten

Brown has 120 days to approve, reject or do nothing with the board's decision.

Van Houten has been granted parole by a California board after 20 failed attempts, but the state governor could still overrule the decision.

This just one day before other Manson followers murdered actress Sharon Tate.

Van Houten was the youngest Manson follower to take part in the killings after joining the cult in the 1960s. Van Houten was 19 when she and fellow cult member Patricia Krenwinkel fatally stabbed Rosemary LaBianca.

Van Houten and her attorney argue she was immature at the time, and couldn't break free of Manson or his ideas.

After Van Houten was tentatively granted parole previous year, Debra Tate gathered 140,000 petition signatures opposing 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.

Van Houten has candidly described her experience with the "Manson Family". But release has been strongly opposed by the families of the victims as well as prosecutors and many others. "I don't find parts in any of this that makes me feel the slightest bit good about myself".

She has appeared before the parole board 21 times and has been pardoned twice, counting Wednesday's pardon. "I was one of them that could not leave", said Share, who added Manson threatened to have her tortured and killed if she tried.

While Susan Atkins, a woman involved in the killings died in jail in 2009, Charles Manson, the mastermind, now 82, remains in custody, currently serving multiple life sentences in California State Prison in Corcoran, California. She said she regretted encouraging her to join the cult.
