FORT WORTH, Texas – The Charles Manson follower convicted of trying to assassinate President Gerald Ford was released Friday from a Texas prison hospital after more than three decades behind bars, a prison official said.

Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme was just 26 years old when she pointed a semiautomatic .45- caliber pistol at Ford in September 1975 in Sacramento, Calif. Secret Service agents grabbed her and Ford was unhurt.

Fromme, now 60, left the Federal Medical Center Carswell in Fort Worth at about 8 a.m. Friday, spokeswoman Dr. Maria Douglas said in a statement.

Fromme, who got a life term, became the first person sentenced under a special federal law covering assaults on U.S. presidents, a statute enacted after the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Ford was walking to the California State Capitol from his hotel when Fromme pushed through the crowd, drew the pistol from a holster on her thigh and pointed it at the president as he shook hands with well-wishers. She was restrained by Secret Service agents who wrested the gun away from her and led the president to safety.

Fromme was granted parole in July 2008 and released "via good conduct time" after completing a 15-month sentence for unlawful escape from a federal correctional institution, according to the statement. That sentence was being served consecutively after a life sentence for threats against the president.

She escaped from a female prison in Alderson, W.Va., on Dec. 23, 1987, and was recaptured about two miles away on Christmas Day after a massive search. She was sentenced to an additional 15 months in prison for the escape. Fromme had said she escaped from prison to be closer to Manson.

It was unclear why Fromme was at Carswell, a facility that specializes in providing medical and mental health services to female offenders. A spokeswoman for the bureau of prisons did not immediately return a phone call Wednesday seeking comment.

Holy shit. I honestly didn't think she was going to get released. A lot of people think that she really didn't intend to kill Ford, she was just trying to make headlines...

I love this part

Yeah..I cant imagine why Squeaky Fromme would be in a mental health ward Razz

I'm cool with her being out. She served a long damn time for her crime. I just hope she stays on her medications. That will be the key to her success beyond the walls.

I don't know, I doubt that she'll last too long on the 'outside'. How will she support herself? Who'd hire her to work for them? She's never held a job in her entire life, so social security is out of the question. I don't think she's ever had children or has a family to fall back on. So what is she going to do? Anybody hear?

I predict, and I could be wrong, that she'll do something nutty again. Probably, within a year from now...but that's just my opinion.

Awe Thanks. I'm currently laid off, so I have more time than I normally do...

My avatar is in memory of my Kitty, Missy, who we had to put to sleep a few months ago. I, think, she led a pretty good life. She was a 24 year old black and white long haired Angora...I downloaded the picture the night before I join this forum and it struck me as being a perfect avatar...

Oh, and Lizard,
I'm NOT kidding, I've never joined a site before. All this stuff is new to me as a member, but it's relatively easy to figure out, if you are the least bit computer savvy...

I'd give Squeaky a job.
Housekeeper sounds fitting, with her name and all ya know.

Little known fact - Squeaky went to high school with Phil Hartman. I have a biography on her that was quite good as I remember.

ohhhhh I'll bet there's a handful of book agents and shady movie producers that'll help cover the *nutty* aspect in her future. Laughing
