Robert F. Kennedy's Killer Transfers Prisons

The attorney for the man who assassinated Robert F. Kennedy says his client has been transferred to a new prison where his life could be in danger.

Sirhan Sirhan's attorney, William F. Pepper, says his client is now in Pleasant Valley State Prison in Coalinga, Calif.

Sirhan, serving a life sentence for the 1968 killing, has been confined for years in a secure unit at the state prison in Corcoran along with high-risk prisoners such as Charles Manson.

Pepper said Monday he wrote to Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger protesting his client's transfer to a less secure cell. Pepper says he has new evidence and wants to reopen Sirhan's case.

A message left with the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation was not immediately returned.
