Mass Murderer Charles Manson Up For Parole

 A California parole board will meet today to determine if mass murderer Charles Manson could be considered "suitable" for parole.

Manson has been denied parole 11 times over the years and his several violations of prison rules over the past five years do not bode well for any hopes of freedom.

Manson is serving a life sentence for seven murders in a 1969 killing spree in Los Angeles.

"We do not expect that Manson will show up. He has not shown up for several of his latest hearings, since 1997," Calif. Department of Corrections spokesman Luis Patino told "He told his counselor that he did not plan on attending."

Manson has been less than a model inmate. He has violated several rules in the five years since his last parole hearing, Calif. Department of Corrections spokeswoman Terry Thornton told
He has been caught in possession of a weapon, threatened a peace officer, and has been caught twice with contraband cell phones in the past three years, Thornton said.
