Van Houten's lawyer, Rich Pfeiffer, said he was pleased with how the commissioners focused on making sure that she took "full responsibility" for her role in the killings.
"She chose to go with Manson. She chose to listen to him. And she acknowledges that," Pfeiffer said. He predicted that it "will be much more difficult" for Newsom to block parole than it was for Brown.
In his decision last year, Brown acknowledged Van Houten's youth at the time of the crime, her more than four decades of good behavior as a prisoner and her abuse at the hands of Manson. But he said she still laid too much blame on Manson for the murders.
At her last hearing, Van Houten described a troubled childhood. She said she was devastated when her parents divorced when she was 14. Soon after, she said, she began hanging out with her school's outcast crowd and using drugs. When she was 17, she and her boyfriend ran away to San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury District during the city's Summer of Love.
She was traveling up and down the California coast when acquaintances led her to Manson. He was holed up at an abandoned movie ranch on the outskirts of Los Angeles where he had recruited what he called a "family" to survive what he insisted would be a race war he would launch by committing a series of random, horrifying murders.

No one who took part in the Tate-LaBianca murders has been released from prison.
Manson died in 2017 of natural causes at a California hospital while serving a life sentence.

she should have been executed. let her finish her life sentence in prison.
she was mis understood, if i could i would let her live with me i feel like she is my sister, few can be rehabilitated, her prison record is pristine, model prisoner, she has been rehabilitated, she has earned the right to be totally exonerated and forgiven, she deserves to walk free as you or i.. i love her
