No Home, No Job, No Sponsor : Sandra Good Parole Stalled
Sandra Good, a member of the Charles Manson family serving time for writing threatening letters to corporate leaders, was not released from federal prison today as scheduled.
Dave Helman, a spokesman for the women’s prison, said the U.S. Parole Commission has delayed Good’s release at least until Dec. 2.
The problem is in arriving at an acceptable living and supervision plan for Good, 41, who has served 10 years in prison, Helman said.
Specifically, he said, Good had no approved place to live, no prospective employment, no community sponsor and no one to counsel her.
Good is serving a sentence for conspiracy to send threatening letters through the mails. Authorities intercepted 171 threatening letters she had written to corporate officials.
She had been a member of the Manson cult but was not convicted in the murders of pregnant actress Sharon Tate and others in California. Good has said that when she is released from prison she wants to live close to the California prison where Manson is held, but authorities have made it a condition of her release that she not associate with any Manson family members.
