Sirhan Sirhan: No Parole, 13 Times and Counting

“Board members argued that Sirhan hasn’t spent enough time reflecting on his crime.”

Sirhan Sirhan, the man who assassinated Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, has again been denied parole.

It’s the 13th time Sirhan Sirhan has been denied parole. The “I was brainwashed” argument didn’t carry the day for him.

He’s behind bars in California’s ironically-titled Pleasant Valley State Prison. His next chance for parole will be in 2016, the year he turns 72.  (Sirhan was born exactly one week before Diana Ross.)  Reuters notes that he’s actually been before a parole board 14 times, but this is the 13th time he’s been eligible for parole and denied.
