Charles Bronson’s son arrives at Royal Courts of Justice for his father’s parole hearing

George Bamby, the son of notorious prisoner Charles Bronson arrived at the Royal Courts of Justice on Monday, 6 March, as his father appeared at a public parole hearing in HMP Woodhill to make his latest bid to be freed from jail.

The 70-year-old, who has spent nearly 50 years behind bars, described himself as “almost an angel” compared with the past.

Bronson, born Michael Gordon Peterson, was sentenced in 2000 to a discretionary life term with a minimum of four years for taking a prison teacher at HMP Hull hostage.
