Sirhan Sirhan, now 66, shot Kennedy to death at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles just moments after he won the California Democratic primary in June of 1968. He was wrestled to the ground in the kitchen of the landmark hotel with a gun in his hand.
The California Board of Parole has consistently denied him release because it has never been persuaded that the convicted assassin has any regrets about killing Kennedy. Typically, inmates who do win release have accepted responsibility for their crimes, are sorry for what they did, and can prove they no longer pose a danger to society.
Sirhan was originally convicted of murder and sentenced to death. His sentence was later commuted to life in prison when the death penalty was outlawed in California in 1972. It has since been reinstated.
The Palestinian immigrant reportedly killed the New York senator because he backed selling warplanes to Israel.
