CHARLES MANSON

Los Angeles Times - - CALIFORNIA -

Im­pris­oned in Cor­co­ran, Calif.

Manson, who or­dered the Tate-LaBianca killings but was not present for any of them, was found guilty of mur­der and sen­tenced to death.

Af­ter the Cal­i­for­nia Supreme Court over­turned cap­i­tal pun­ish­ment in 1972, Manson’s sen­tence was re­duced to life in pri­son.

Manson, now 80, has had “hun­dreds” of rules vi­o­la­tions, pri­son of­fi­cials say, and has got­ten in trou­ble for hav­ing a cell­phone and pri­son-made weapon while in­car­cer­ated. Manson has been de­nied pa­role 12 times. His next pa­role hear­ing is sched­uled for 2027, when he will be 92. He has been in pri­son since 1971, and is in­car­cer­ated in Cor­co­ran.

In Novem­ber, Manson and Afton Elaine Bur­ton, a 27-year-old Manson devo­tee, were granted a mar­riage li­cense, but it ex­pired in Fe­bru­ary be­fore the two could marry.
