Bobby Beausoleil’s Parole Hearing Postponed For Third Time

Friday, December 4th, 2015


Dec. 4 – Bobby Beausoleil’s parole hearing, scheduled for next Tuesday, has been postponed.

Beausoleil was granted a postponement of his hearing for 6 months, according to the California Department of Corrections. He will be scheduled again for a hearing no later than June of next year.

Originally scheduled for February of this year, the hearing has been postponed twice before, due to an unresolved disciplinary action and a Board of Parole Hearing investigation into the matter.

Over the summer, the CDCR relocated Beausoleil, transferring him from Oregon State Penitentiary – where he had been incarcerated since May of 1994 – to the Deuel Vocational Institute, located in Tracey, California.

Beausoleil, 68, serving a life term for his role in the 1969 murder of musician Gary Hinman, has been denied parole 17 times, was given a 5 year denial at his last hearing, held in 2010.

UPDATE: Bobby Beausoleil has been transferred to the California Medical Facility in Vacaville. Thanks to Deb Silva for this information.
