On July 30, Bicknell faced the Board of Parole and found him suitable for release, according to District Attorney Jeannine Pacioni. Bicknell was found suitable by the same board in February 22 but his release was reversed by Governor Gavin Newson.

The victims’ surviving family, who are also related to Bicknell, wrote letters opposing his release and many appeared during the hearing for the first time.

The family members and the Monterey County District Attorney’s office plan to appeal this decision to the full Board of Parole Hearings and the Governor, said Pacioni.
