PAROLE DENIED for Inmate Manning

PAROLE DENIED for Inmate Manning!

On July 9th 2019, at the California State Prison, Los Angeles County located in Lancaster, California a parole hearing was held for Inmate John Manning. Manning had previously been convicted at a jury trial of being hired to murder victim F.M., a father of four young daughters in Glenn County, over a drug debt. The plan to assassinate F.M. was carried out by Inmate Manning and two codefendants by luring the victim to a remote location and executing him in cold blood as he begged for his life. This case was investigated by Glenn County Sheriff's Office. Manning was sentenced to life without the possibility of parole. However, over Christmas 2018 then Governor Jerry Brown commuted Manning’s sentence to life WITH the possibility of parole, which made Manning eligible for parole immediately. After a lengthy hearing, the Parole Board denied Manning’s parole, and he will not be eligible for parole again for 3 years.
