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."

Give me a break. This man is a monster. He may not have killed Sharon Tate and those with her...he had others to do his dirty work because he was a coward. He is just as guilty. He is the one who instigated the killings. Because of him they were slaughtered. He should have been put to death. NO way should this man be set free. Forget about it.

He needs to stay where he is..by a weird stroke of luck, his death penalty sentence reverted to life...And it should be LIFE, if not execution.

It is unreal, and speaks volumes about the degradation of a society that would consider unleashing such a monster into the mainstream..He was supposed to be executed for the most horrific murders of the century.

#14 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
