Charles Manson’s followers: Will those still alive ever get out of prison?

LOS ANGELES — With Charles Manson dead, the next chapter in the Manson family saga will involve follower Leslie Van Houten. Van Houten is one of several Manson followers who are still alive and in prison. They periodically come up for parole review, though none has been released. Van Houten, who was convicted along with other members of Manson’s cult in the 1969 killings of Leno and Rosemary LaBianca, was granted parole in September by a panel of state commissioners in Chino. It was the 21st time that Van Houten, 68, had appeared before a parole board, and the second time that commissioners found her suitable for release.
