Charles Manson follower Leslie Van Houten’s bid for freedom was denied by the court of appeals in California last Friday.

Wood, 70, was recommended for parole three times, after serving for more than four decades, its role in a pair of grisly murders. Its release has been suspended twice by former Gov Jerry Brown, while the third was blocked by the Gov. Gavin Newsom, in the month of June.

Two of the three judges upheld Brown’s decision to have Wood release to that of the previous year.

“The Governor’s determination that the Wood will not be held responsible for its role in the world, and it continues to pose a risk to the public, and is supported by some evidence in the record,” the judges ruled. They were not a solid Brown, the other conclusion is that of her crimes, alone, is enough reason for her to be in prison at the age of 70.

The third judge, said: “there is a certain amount of evidence” to support the conclusion that Wood is still at risk.

Van Houten’s attorney, Rich Pfeiffer, said he would appeal the decision to the state Supreme Court. He argued that his client was rehabilitated and no longer poses a threat.

“I would have expected them to go home in a week or two, I really do,” he said. “And that’s just not happening. Two things you can count on when She is out, and I did not enter it until they do.”
