'Squeaky' Fromme to be released

August 5, 2009 9:35:30 PM PDT
Former Manson family member Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme is set to be released from a Texas prison a week from Sunday. 60-year-old Fromme was convicted in 1975 for pointing a gun at then-president Gerald Ford during a stop in Sacramento. She became eligible for parole in 1985 but waived her right to a hearing for years.

She was not involved in the infamous Manson family murders, but remained a loyal follower.
