Gypsy Rose Blanchard Granted Early Prison Release And Will Be Out By The End Of The Year

Gypsy Rose Blanchard has been granted early release from prison and is due to be out by the end of 2023. She was sentenced to 10 years behind bars back in 2016 in connection with the murder of her mother, Dee Dee Blanchard, who was killed by her then-boyfriend Nick Godejohn. He’s currently serving life in prison.

  1. Gypsy Rose Blanchard was due to get out in 2026. However, she has always maintained her innocence and fought for parole. She previously asked fans for their help to get her released. While letters of support likely bolstered her spirit, it’s unlikely that it influenced the board’s decision to let her out early. Nevertheless, it seems her persistence has paid off.
  2. Her official parole date is December 28. According to documents from the Missouri Department of Corrections obtained by TMZ, Gypsy Rose Blanchard will get parole just a few days after Christmas and will be able to ring in the new year as a free woman. When she leaves, she will have served seven years of her decade-long sentence.
  3. Whether or not Gypsy Rose is ready for life outside is a whole other matter. After all, she was a victim of systematic child abuse for pretty much her whole life. She also played a role in her mother’s death. The effect that has on a person’s psyche can’t be overstated.
  4. Many family friends believe it won’t end well. Earlier this year, family friends Fancy Marcelli and Titania Gisclair said they don’t think Gypsy Rose will be able to handle life on the outside. They don’t support early release. In fact, they think she needs more counseling and help before she gets out.
  5. It’s unclear what Gypsy Rose Blanchard will do after she gets parole. However, given that she’s engaged to a pen pal named Ken, who she’s been with since 2019, chances are she’ll want to start a new life with him. Hopefully, it pans out for her.
