For Manson Family member Bruce Davis, parole attempt number 27 is the charm

After spending over 40 years in prison former Charles Manson family member Bruce Davis has been granted parole, after trying 26 times .  But he won’t exactly walk away a free man any time soon.

The recommendation is not the last hurdle in Davis’ quest for freedom. The parole grant is subject to a 120-day review period by the entire parole board. If it is upheld, Gov. Jerry Brown then has 30 days to review the decision.

For many years he denied being involved in the murders of two people musician Gary Hinman and stuntman Donald “Shorty” Shea – he was not present at the Tate/LaBianca murders, but has recently admitted his guilt saying  he has “made remarkable progress in coming to terms with what I did.”

Well … as long as he feels better about what he did!

As for his pal Charlie, he and two of his followers, Leslie Van Houten and Patricia Krenwinkel, remain in prison for life in the Tate/LaBianca killings. Their co-defendant, Susan Atkins, died of cancer behind bars in 2009. Another of the Tate killers, Charles “Tex” Watson, also remains in prison.
