Friday, October 15th, 2021

Oct. 15 – The California Board of Parole Hearings has once again found Charles “Tex” Watson unsuitable for parole.

Watson, 75, is serving a life sentence for the seven Tate-LaBianca murders. Originally sentenced to death on November 11, 1971, Watson’s sentence was commuted down to life with the possibility of parole in March of 1973 when the death penalty was briefly outlawed.

He has been denied parole 18 times and will not be eligible for another hearing until 2026.
