A parole board concluded on Tuesday his release would be incompatible with the welfare of society and would undermine respect for the law.

The Son of Sam terrorized New York City in 1976 and `77 and took responsibility for a string of handgun assaults. He was convicted of fatally shooting six people and injuring several others.

Berkowitz is 58. The former Yonkers resident is serving 25 years to life at the maximum-security Sullivan Correctional Facility northwest of New York City.

He’s been in prison 35 years. He’s eligible for another parole hearing in two years.

The parole board notes his “significant prison ministry,” clean disciplinary record and expression of remorse.

Berkowitz has said Jesus Christ has forgiven him.
