News, Newsom blocks Manson follower Patricia Krenwinkel’s 15th bid for parole : detailed suggestions and opinions about Newsom blocks Manson follower Patricia Krenwinkel’s 15th bid for parole .
Patricia Krenwinkel, California’s longest-serving female inmate and former follower of Charles Manson, will not be paroled after Gov. Gavin Newsom ruled against her release Friday.
In a signed ruling, Newsom said Krenwinkel “still poses an unreasonable danger to society if paroled at this time.”
The governor’s decision comes months after the state Board of Parole Hearings recommended Krenwinkel for release in May.
Krenwinkel, 74, was sent to death row in 1971 after a Los Angeles jury convicted her of killing actress Sharon Tate and six others in the Manson followers’ two-day rampage across Los Angeles.
