Sirhan Bishara Sirhan (Arabic: سرحان بشارة سرحان, born March 19, 1944) is a Palestinian who was convicted for the assassination of United States Senator Robert F. Kennedy. He is serving a life sentence at Pleasant Valley State Prison, California.

Sirhan was a Jordanian citizen in Jerusalem born to a Palestinian Christian family. When he was 12, his family emigrated, moving briefly to New York, and then to California. He attended Eliot Junior High School (now known as Charles W. Eliot Middle School) in Altadena, California, John Muir High School and Pasadena City College. Sirhan's father Bishara was characterized as a stern man who often beat his sons harshly, and shortly after the family's move to California, he would return alone to the Middle East.

As an adult, he changed church denominations several times, joining Baptist and Seventh-day Adventist churches, and also allegedly dabbling in the occult. He was employed as a stable boy in 1965 at the Santa Anita race track in Arcadia, California.
