Tex Watson Denied Parole For 5 Years

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

IONE, California, Nov. 16 – Charles “Tex” Watson, 65, has been denied parole for the 16th time, at a hearing Wednesday in Mule Creek State Prision in Ione, California.

Watson was convicted of seven counts of first degree murder and one count conspiracy to commit murder in October of 1971 for his part in the August 1969 Tate-Labianca killings, which included the 8 ½ months pregnant Sharon Tate.

Watson was also involved with the killing of Spahn Ranch hand Donald “Shorty” Shea, although he was never tried for the murder.

The parole hearing was also attended by relatives of the victims, including Jay Sebring’s nephew Anthony DiMaria, who reflected:
“We want to bring the memories of the victims into the room as the commissioners deliberate on whether to parole the inmate.”

Watson will not be eligible for parole until 2016.

    I am so glad tex watson was denied parole again an d that he can’t go up again until 2016. I have followed him as well as all of the manson family for all these years. None of them should ever be allowed out into society again. They had no qualms about killing their victims nor do they now or ever have they apologized for their actions. They didn’t care about what they did, loving it as they did. I don;t think any of them should ever have been allowed to have conjugical visits, marry or have children. It is a sin that they were allowed to do any of this, especially while their Sharon Tate and all the others were dead, buried, and never allowed to have those things. It is a poor justice society that allowes people who have committed such terrible crimes to have such luxories. May they all stay and serve their time until they die, just where they are so they cant get out and do the same thing again. CLE
