Why this petition matters

Started by Debra Tate

Charles "Tex" Watson (CDC # B-37999) - who stabbed my sister Sharon Tate 16 times, killing her & her full term baby- was denied parole on October 15, 2021 for a "period of 5 years"- however he may petition to advance his next hearing to be as soon as 15 months later instead!!! SIGNATURES ARE STILL BEING COLLECTED HERE FOR HIS NEXT HEARING (date TBD).  Please sign, comment, & SHARE this petition to let his next parole board & the Governor of CA know that you oppose his being released from prison.

He personally shot and stabbed all 8 of the Tate/LaBianca murder victims, as well as a ranch hand at Spahn Ranch named Donald "Shorty" Shea.  He has admitted to personally inflicting over 100 stab wounds to multiple victims! He stabbed Wojciech Frykowski at Sharon's home 52 times, in addition to shooting him twice and beating him over the head 13 times with a gun.  The violence this man has committed has shocked people around the world for over 50 years.  

His victims include: Abigail Folger, Steven Parent, Jay Sebring, Sharon Tate Polanski, Paul Richard Polanski (in utero), Wojciech Frykowski, Leno LaBianca, Rosemary LaBianca, Donald Shorty Shea, and possibly others.

He was allowed to father four children while in prison- the very thing he stole from my sister Sharon- who was just about to start her family.  This man is a predatory serial killer who killed for absolutely no reason.  His only explanation over the years for doing this was that he was trying to please Charles Manson & ignite a race war in America called "Helter Skelter".

This man's brutal, vicious crimes make him an impossible candidate to ever be considered for parole.  He can NEVER be set free into society after the heinous acts he engineered and executed.  This man poses a very serious danger to any area he would be allowed to live in or travel to.  

Please help me in letting the parole board know he does not deserve parole and you do not want this vicious serial killer set free by signing & SHARING this petition!

When his next hearing is approaching, if you would like to also e-mail or write a letter to the board- please include Charles D. Watson's name, CDC# B-37999, hearing date [TBD], & state why you feel he should stay in prison by contacting:
