Leslie Van Houten was one of Manson's followers. Maxwell Keith, Van Houten's attorney, argued that she, along with co-defendant Charles "Tex" Watson, were not culpable for their crimes since they had been brainwashed during their time with the Manson family. Van Houten's first trial ended in a hung jury; a second jury did not accept the brainwashing defense and convicted her of first degree murder.
