Charles Manson's Attorney

Asks Obama For Help

2/22/2011 8:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Charles Manson's lawyer has just sent a fax to President Obama, asking for mercy.

Barack Obama and Giovanni Di Stefano
Giovanni Di Stefano -- known as "The Devil's Advocate" -- tells TMZ, he wants the Prez to set Manson free.

Di Stefano -- who has also repped the likes of Saddam Hussein -- says Manson was nothing more than a cult leader, not a murderer -- Manson didn't do the killing.  Di Stefano says at worst, Manson is guilty of telling his followers to "do something witchy" -- never specifying murder.

Di Stefano complains, "Manson has been made out in America to be the Satan of the criminal justice system. He does not deserve the title."

Lol, he doesn't deserve a release... but it's true, I dont think he deserves the title and "fame" hes gotten. There have been MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH worse people. Manson shouldnt be looked at the way he is.

Isn't it ironic, Mason was trying to start a race war and now he's begging to a black President. Yes, there is a God
