Lynette 'Squeaky' Fromme to Be Released From Prison

Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme is about to be released from prison after more than three decades.

According to the Federal Bureau of Prisons, Fromme, now 60, is set to be released on parole August 16.

Fromme is housed at the Federal Medical Center at Carswell, Texas.

Fromme was convicted in 1975 of pointing a gun at then-President Gerald Ford in Sacramento, California.

Secret Service agents prevented her from firing, but the gun was later found to have no bullet in the chamber, although it contained a clip of ammunition.

Ford died in 2006 at age 93.
