Sirhan Sirhan

Sirhan B. Sirhan (born March 19, 1944) is the person who assassinated Senator Robert F. Kennedy in 1968 by shooting him just minutes after he had won the California presidential primary election.

On March 3, 1969, in a Los Angeles, California court, Sirhan Sirhan admitted that he had killed Kennedy.

Sirhan was convicted and sentenced to death, but the sentence was commuted to life in prison in 1972 after the California Supreme Court declared the death penalty unconstitutional.

He is eligible for parole, but as of March 2003 has had parole denied twelve consecutive times.
