A state prisons panel may have granted parole to a notorious killer described as a “right-hand man” to Charles Manson, but he isn't about to go free any time soon.
The decision on whether Bruce Davis, 69, walks out of California Men's Colony in San Luis Obispo after spending more than four decades behind bars can be reviewed by the larger Board of Parole Hearings and, if necessary, Gov. Jerry Brown.
Terry Thornton, a California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation spokeswoman, said the Board of Parole Hearings, which has far more members than the smaller panel that decided to grant Davis parole, has 120 days to review the case.
After that period, if the decision is allowed to stand, the governor may conduct an independent review.
Under state law, Brown has the authority to reverse, modify or affirm the recommendation. Once it is in his hands, the governor has 30 days to make a decision, Thornton said.
