Leslie Van Houten, the youngest follower of cult leader Charles Manson, will be seeking parole once more, despite the fact that she's serving a life sentence for her heinous crimes.

As has learned, the 69-year-old is scheduled for a parole hearing this Wednesday at the California Institute for Women.

According to the New York Post, her lawyer, Rich Pfeiffer, believes she will have no problem getting parole as she's been a model inmate for over four decades. However, a judge has twice blocked Van Houten's release, saying she still blames her crimes mostly on Manson, rather than taking responsibility for her own actions.

She previously admitted that she smeared the couple's blood on the walls of their home after the slaying.
