CALIFORNIA PAROLE

Matt Hamilton and Richard Winton, The Los Angeles Times

Charles Manson follower Patricia Krenwinkel lost her latest bid for freedom on Thursday as parole hearing commissioners rejected a request by the state’s longest-serving female inmate to be released after a hearing in Corona.

The decision is the latest in a long series of repeated denials by Krenwinkel to secure parole on her conviction in a murderous rampage with Manson and other so-called Manson family members. But late last year, her attorney asserted new claims that Krenwinkel suffered abuse at Manson’s hands before the murders.

A Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation spokesman said Krenwinkel will be eligible to apply for parole again in five years.

CALIFORNIA INMATES

SAN DIEGO – Two correctional officers were treated and released from a local hospital after being attacked by an inmate Wednesday at Richard J. Donovan Correctional Facility (RJD).

At around 1 p.m. June 21, a correctional officer was escorting inmate Lucious Wilson, 38, out of a building when Wilson lunged at the officer and began punching him in the face. The officer immediately began to defend himself from Wilson’s attack and attempted to strike back with his own fists. Other staff in the area observed the attack and immediately ran over to assist in restraining Wilson. After a struggle on the ground, the officers were able to subdue and restrain the inmate.

A use agreement approved in May 2015 paid for range upgrades, but funds from the general budget have been needed to continue with other improvements.
