Checked the inmate locator.  At least as of this point, there is no record of Brown denying her parole this time.  He did deny it  last time, which was widely reported.  If my math is correct, the 120 day parole review process ended January 4th and Brown has until February 3rd to act.

No problem.  I've been keeping an eye on her out of personal interest.  If Brown has denied her again, then it has not been made public yet.  There were some changes to California law that caused her to have parole hearing dates in back-to-back years.....I forget the exact order, but one was her usual "lifer" parole and the other was her new "juvenile" parole under SB 261.  I think this year's was the juvenile parole.  Not sure if there's any difference in the governor's obligation on it in terms of what he has to decide, but because she was under 23 years of age she got this second type of hearing.

We should know soon if she's being denied again.  Clock's ticking.

Yeah ,Susan Atkins died of brain cancer & Patricia Krenwinkle / Leslie Van Houten are still locked up....kinda surprised they kicked Lynette Fromme lose after her failed attempt to kill Gerald Ford....I guess they couldn't directly link her w/the any of the "Family" murders....Sandy Good is another mystery....I think Squeaky & Sandy are @ least as dangerous as the other 2 that are still behind bars....they're still carrying on w/Charlie's ATWA crusade as far as I know & seem to be as devoted to him as they were in the late 60's early 70's.

It seems like Squeaky and Sandy haven't learned anything from past mistakes and are still involved.  LVH seems to have separated herself from all of it, but who knows if that's true or if she's just putting on a great act?  Because my girlfriend did some time I became familiar with the sorts of games that female inmates play.  And of course, the irony is many of them have been locked up with LVH.  Most of them don't like her.  One of them who's been out a few years now that my girlfriend and I kind of took on like a sister (she's doing well now, staying out of trouble, just had twins with her new boyfriend and is living in Ohio now far away from her California problems which probably helps) said that her initial interactions with LVH were negative but that she had more than a few and that once she determined an inmate wasn't a scam artist or a trouble maker she let her guard down a bit and was quite pleasant and well-spoken (of course my girlfriend was always cooking up one scam or another in there to try to get a leg up, so I shouldn't be shocked she didn't like her.)  She said she seemed "normal" and didn't seem connected to any of the Manson stuff and that inmates generally didn't ask her about it or bring it up.  She did indicate that Krenwinkle seemed more like an odd sort and that the consensus was that she was still caught up in Family stuff to some degree.

What always fascinated me about LVH is that she did spend about a year out of prison in the 70's on appeal.  Apparently she lived in Echo Park, held a job, and was doing just fine.  I'm not particularly in favor of any of them getting out, but my sense is that she is probably the least likely of the bunch to cause a problem upon release if we get to early February and Brown doesn't block the exits.

Should know soon.....public reaction on her getting out has been more mixed than with the others, but there will definitely be some with strong objections...

I agree ,from what I've seen in interviews & read Leslie Van Houten strikes me
 be as the most rehabilitated....personally I'd be more comfortable w/her walking the streets than Sandy or Squeaky....thanks for the additional info btw.....
