A jury in 1969 found Sirhan guilty of assassinating Kennedy the previous year by opening fire with a.22-caliber pistol into a small crowd surrounding the Democratic candidate in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles.

Sirhan was convicted of fatally shooting Kennedy on 6 June 1968 at the Ambassador hotel in Los Angeles immediately after the NY senator - brother of assassinated president John F Kennedy - declared victory in the California Democratic presidential primary.

Sirhan, then 24, was subdued at the scene.

Other notable inmates housed at R.J. Donovan include Suge Knight, Lyle and Erik Menendez, Jesse James Hollywood and Manson Family member Tex Watson.

Kennedy, a US senator from NY, was hit three times and died the next day. His next hearing is slated for February 2021.
