Crowell Public Library

1890 Huntington Drive, CA, CA 91108


The 1970 Charles Manson trial launched Bill Robles career as a television news courtroom artist, followed by the high-profile trials of Patricia Hearst, John DeLorean, the Hillside Strangler, Rodney King. O.J. Simpson, the Unabomber, Oklahoma City bombers Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, the Menendez Brothers, Robert Blake, Michael Jackson, Donald and Shelly Sterling and mostly recently, Led Zeppelin.

A native of Los Angeles, Bill Robles now resides in Brentwood. He received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the Art Center College of Design where he also taught.
