Lynnette "Squeaky" Fromm is Released from Prison After 34 Years in Custody
Fromme first became eligible for parole in 1985, and was entitled by federal law to a mandatory hearing after 30 years but could waive that hearing and apply for release at a later date.
Fromme steadfastly waived her right to request a hearing. and was required by federal law to complete a parole application before one could be considered and granted. Fromme was granted parole in July 2008, but was not released due to the extra time added to her sentence for the 1987 prison escape.
Fromme was released on parole from Federal Medical Center, Carswell on August 14, 2009.
The president she once pointed a gun at has been dead for nearly three years, and her longtime idol and leader, Charles Manson, remains in prison.
However, Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme is about to get her first taste of real freedom in more than three decades.
According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Fromme, now 60, is set to be released on parole August 16.
