Ein Wunsch, den ihm zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt zig junge Frauen erfüllten, indem sie sich seiner "Family" anschlossen und teilweise sogar für ihn über Leichen gingen. Doch die versuchte vergeblich, Charles in Pflegefamilien abzuschieben. Der Prozess verlief turbulent.
The Los Angeles district attorney said that Manson was obsessed with the Beatles , particularly their self-titled album. Manson had claimed to be guided by his interpretation of the Beatles' lyrics and adopted the term " Helter Skelter " to describe an impending apocalyptic race war.
At trial, the prosecution submitted that Manson and his followers believed that the murders would help precipitate that war.
Other contemporary interviews and those who testified during Manson's trial insisted that the Tate—LaBianca murders were copycat crimes designed to exonerate Manson's friend Bobby Beausoleil.
Manson's notoriety as an emblem of insanity, violence, and the macabre has also influenced pop culture. Recordings of songs written and performed by Manson were released commercially, starting with Lie: The Love and Terror Cult Various musicians have covered some of his songs.
Although originally sentenced to death, his sentence was commuted to life with the possibility of parole after the California Supreme Court invalidated the state's death penalty statute in He served his life sentence at California State Prison, Corcoran and died at age 83 in late He was first named "no name Maddox".
Manson may never have known his biological father. He allowed Maddox to believe that he was an army colonel, although "Colonel" was merely his given name.
When Maddox told Scott that she was pregnant, he told her he had been called away on army business; after several months she realized he had no intention of returning.
In August , before Manson's birth, Maddox married William Eugene Manson — , a "laborer" at a dry cleaning business.
Maddox often went on drinking sprees with her brother Luther, leaving Charles with multiple babysitters.
Charles retained William's last name, Manson. Kathleen and Luther were sentenced to five and ten years of imprisonment, respectively.
Manson was placed in the home of an aunt and uncle in McMechen, West Virginia. Manson later characterized the first weeks after she returned from prison as the happiest time in his life.
In an interview with Diane Sawyer , Manson said that when he was nine, he set his school on fire. Although there were a lack of foster home placements, in , at the age of 13, Manson was placed in the Gibault School for Boys in Terre Haute, Indiana , a school for male delinquents run by Catholic priests.
Manson ran away from Gibault and slept in the woods, under bridges, and wherever else he could find shelter. Manson fled home to his mother, and spent Christmas in McMechen, at his aunt and uncle's house.
Ten months later, he ran away to Indianapolis. At first the robbery was simply to find something to eat. However, Manson found a cigar box containing just over a hundred dollars, and he took the money.
He used the money to rent a room on Indianapolis's Skid Row and to buy food. For a time, Manson tried to go straight by getting a job delivering messages for Western Union.
However, he quickly began to supplement his wages through petty theft. They used it to commit two armed robberies on their way to the home of Nielson's uncle in Peoria, Illinois.
In the investigation that followed, he was linked to his two earlier armed robberies. He was sent to the Indiana Boys School , a strict reform school.
At the school, other students allegedly raped Manson with the encouragement of a staff member, and he was repeatedly beaten. He ran away from the school eighteen times.
When he was physically unable to defend himself, he would screech, grimace and wave his arms to convince aggressors that he was insane.
For the federal crime of driving a stolen car across state lines, Manson was sent to Washington, D. His case worker deemed him aggressively antisocial.
On a psychiatrist's recommendation, Manson was transferred in October to Natural Bridge Honor Camp, a minimum security institution.
Manson had a parole hearing scheduled for February However, in January, he was caught raping a boy at knifepoint. Manson was transferred to the Federal Reformatory in Petersburg, Virginia.
There he committed a further "eight serious disciplinary offenses, three involving homosexual acts". He was then moved to a maximum security reformatory at Chillicothe, Ohio , where he was expected to remain until his release on his 21st birthday in November Good behavior led to an early release in May , to live with his aunt and uncle in McMechen.
After a psychiatric evaluation, he was given five years' probation. Manson's failure to appear at a Los Angeles hearing on an identical charge filed in Florida resulted in his March arrest in Indianapolis.
His probation was revoked; he was sentenced to three years' imprisonment at Terminal Island , San Pedro, California. During his first year at Terminal Island, Manson received visits from Rosalie and his mother, who were now living together in Los Angeles.
In March , when the visits from his wife ceased, his mother informed him Rosalie was living with another man. Less than two weeks before a scheduled parole hearing, Manson tried to escape by stealing a car.
He was given five years' probation and his parole was denied. Manson received five years' parole in September , the same year in which Rosalie received a decree of divorce.
By November, he was pimping a year-old girl and was receiving additional support from a girl with wealthy parents.
In September , he pleaded guilty to a charge of attempting to cash a forged U. Treasury check, which he claimed to have stolen from a mailbox; the latter charge was later dropped.
He received a year suspended sentence and probation after a young woman named Leona, who had an arrest record for prostitution, made a "tearful plea" before the court that she and Manson were "deeply in love Manson took Leona and another woman to New Mexico for purposes of prostitution, resulting in him being held and questioned for violating the Mann Act.
Though he was released, Manson correctly suspected that the investigation had not ended. When he disappeared in violation of his probation, a bench warrant was issued.
An indictment for violation of the Mann Act followed in April For violating his probation on the check-cashing charge, he was ordered to serve his ten-year sentence.
Manson spent a year trying unsuccessfully to appeal the revocation of his probation. There, he took guitar lessons from Barker—Karpis gang leader Alvin "Creepy" Karpis , and obtained from another inmate a contact name of someone at Universal Studios in Hollywood , Phil Kaufman.
Although the Mann Act charge had been dropped, the attempt to cash the Treasury check was still a federal offense.
Manson's September annual review noted he had a "tremendous drive to call attention to himself", an observation echoed in September During the process she alleged that she and Manson had a son, Charles Luther.
In June , Manson was sent for the second time to Terminal Island in preparation for early release. By the time of his release day on March 21, , he had spent more than half of his 32 years in prisons and other institutions.
This was mainly because he had broken federal laws. Federal sentences were, and remain, much more severe than state sentences for many of the same offenses.
Telling the authorities that prison had become his home, he requested permission to stay. After being discharged from prison in , Manson began attracting a group of followers, mostly young women, from around California.
They were later known as the Manson Family. The Manson Family developed into a doomsday cult when Manson became fixated on the idea of an imminent apocalyptic race war between America's Black population and the larger white population.
A white supremacist ,   Manson believed that Black people in America would rise up and kill all whites except for Manson and his "Family", but that they were not intelligent enough to survive on their own; they would need a white man to lead them, and so they would serve Manson as their "master".
In early August , Manson encouraged his followers to start Helter Skelter, by committing murders in Los Angeles and making it appear to be racially motivated.
The Manson Family gained national notoriety after the murder of actress Sharon Tate and four others in her home on August 8 and 9, ,  and Leno and Rosemary LaBianca the next day.
Tex Watson and three other members of the Family executed the Tate—LaBianca murders, allegedly acting under Manson's instructions.
Evidence pointed to Manson's obsession with inciting a race war by killing those he thought were "pigs" and his belief that this would show the "nigger" how to do the same.
Co-defendant Tex Watson was tried at a later date after being extradited from Texas. The trial began on July 15, Manson appeared wearing fringed buckskins, his typical clothing at Spahn Ranch.
On July 24, — the first day of testimony—Manson appeared in court with an "X" carved into his forehead. His followers issued a statement from Manson saying "I have "X'd myself from your world".
Members of the Manson Family camped outside of the courthouse, and held a vigil on a street corner, because they were excluded from the courtroom for being disruptive.
Some of Manson's followers also carved crosses into their heads. The State presented dozens of witnesses during the trial.
However, its primary witness was Linda Kasabian , who was present during the Tate murders on August 8—9, Kasabian provided graphic testimony of the Tate murders, which she observed from outside the house.
She was also in the car with Manson on the following evening, when he ordered the LaBianca killings. Kasabian spent days on the witness stand, being cross-examined by the defendants' lawyers.
After testifying, Kasabian went into hiding for the next forty years. In early August , President Richard Nixon told reporters that he believed that Manson was guilty of the murders, "either directly or indirectly".
Older polled each member of the jury, to determine whether each juror saw the headline and whether it affected his or her ability to make an independent decision.
All of the jurors affirmed that they could still decide independently. So why go on? On October 5, , Manson attempted to kill Judge Older while the jury was present in the room.
Manson first threatened Older, and then jumped over his lawyer's table with a sharpened pencil, in the direction of Older. Manson was restrained before reaching the judge.
While being led out of the courtroom, Manson screamed at Older, "In the name of Christian justice, someone should cut your head off!
Judge Older began wearing a. On November 16, , the State of California rested its case after presenting twenty-two weeks worth of evidence.
The defendants then stunned the courtroom by announcing that they had no witnesses to present, and rested their case.
Immediately after defendants' counsel rested their case, the three female defendants shouted that they wanted to testify. Their attorneys advised the court, in chambers, that they opposed their clients testifying.
Apparently, the female defendants wanted to testify that Manson had had nothing to do with the murders. The following day, Manson himself announced that he too wanted to testify.
The judge allowed Manson to testify outside the presence of the jury. He stated as follows:. These children that come at you with knives, they are your children.
You taught them. I didn't teach them. I just tried to help them stand up. Most of the people at the ranch that you call the Family were just people that you did not want.
Manson continued, equating his actions to those of society at large:. I know this: that in your hearts and your souls, you are as much responsible for the Vietnam war as I am for killing these people.
I can't judge any of you. I have no malice against you and no ribbons for you. But I think that it is high time that you all start looking at yourselves, and judging the lie that you live in.
Manson concluded, claiming that he too was a creation of a system that he viewed as fundamentally violent and unjust:.
My father is the jailhouse. My father is your system. I am only what you made me. I am only a reflection of you.
You want to kill me? I am already dead — have been all my life. I've spent twenty-three years in tombs that you have built. After Manson finished speaking, Judge Older offered to let him testify before the jury.
Manson replied that it was not necessary. Manson then told the female defendants that they no longer needed to testify. On November 30, , Leslie Van Houten's attorney, Ronald Hughes , failed to appear for the closing arguments in the trial.
His body was badly decomposed, and it was impossible to tell the cause of death. Hughes had disagreed with Manson during the trial, taking the position that his client, Van Houten, should not testify to claim that Manson had no involvement with the murders.
Some have alleged that Hughes may have been murdered by the Manson Family. On January 25, , the jury found Manson, Krenwinkel and Atkins guilty of first degree murder in all seven of the Tate and LaBianca killings.
The jury found Van Houten guilty of murder in the first degree in the LaBianca killings. After the convictions, the court held a separate hearing before the same jury to determine if the defendants should receive the death sentence.
Each of the three female defendants — Atkins, Van Houten, and Krenwinkel — took the stand. They provided graphic details of the murders and testified that Manson was not involved.
According to the female defendants, they had committed the crimes in order to help fellow Manson Family member Bobby Beausoleil get out of jail, where he was being held for the murder of Gary Hinman.
The female defendants testified that the Tate-LaBianca murders were intended to be copycat crimes , similar to the Hinman killing.
Atkins, Krenwinkel and Van Houten claimed they did this under the direction of the state's prime witness, Linda Kasabian.
The defendants did not express remorse for the killings. On March 4, , during the sentencing hearings, Manson trimmed his beard to a fork and shaved his head, telling the media, "I am the Devil, and the Devil always has a bald head!
The state prosecutor, Vincent Bugliosi, later speculated in his book, Helter Skelter , that they refrained from doing so, in order to not appear to be completely controlled by Manson as they had when they each carved an "X" in their foreheads, earlier in the trial.
On March 29, , the jury sentenced all four defendants to death. When the female defendants were led into the courtroom, each of them had shaved their heads, as had Manson.
After hearing the sentence, Atkins shouted to the jury, "Better lock your doors and watch your kids. The Manson murder trial was the longest murder trial in American history when it occurred, lasting nine and a half months.
