Simone Starr was a bikini model and Penthouse Pet An ex-prostitute and international drug trafficker has turned her life around and found love with a former female prison guard. Simone Starr was a bikini model and Penthouse Pet before she became a figure in Sydney's underworld in the late '90s and early 2000s.

It was during her time as an inmate at Dillwaynia women's prison in 2017 when she broke down after a particularly intense rehabilitation program that she met Britt Young - the future love of her life. 'It was very confronting. I didn't listen to no one then, I was a ratbag back in the day and she took the time out to give me time,' Starr told the Daily Telegraph. For three weeks, the former military worker checked

California Gov. Gavin Newson has reversed parole for Charles Manson follower Leslie Van Houten, marking the fourth time a governor has blocked her release and the 23rd time she's been denied parole. A California panel recommended parole in July for Van Houten, 71, who has spent nearly five decades in prison.  Newsom reversed her release once previously and his predecessor, Jerry Brown, blocked it twice. Van Houten's attorney, Rich Pfeiffer, said they will appeal Newsom's decision. Leslie Van Houten (left and right), a member of the Manson Family, was denied parole a 23rd time after Gov. Gavin Newsom on Saturday overturned the decision of a state panel to release her Van Houten was one of a handful of Manson Family members who took part in the LaBianca killings in August 1969 'This reversal will demonstrate to the courts that there is no way Newsom will let her out,' Pfeiffer said. 'So they have to enforce the law or it will never be enforced.' Newsom said
