Oh, Good – Charles Manson Is Getting Married To A Young Woman Who Visits Him In Prison
Mass murderer Charles Manson has received a license to marry a 26-year-old woman who visits him in prison. That seems like a fantastic idea. (Seriously, why isn't there a sarcasm font?)
The marriage license was obtained Monday by The Associated Press, and was issued Nov. 7 for 80-year-old Manson and a woman named Afton Elaine Burton, who moved to Corcoran, California nine years ago to be near Manson. She runs several websites that advocate for Manson's innocence.
The license does not specify a wedding date, but does state that the couple has 90 days to get married or they will have to reapply.
The good news is, I suppose, that as a life prisoner with no parole date, he isn't allowed to have conjugal visits.
Manson has been in prison since 1969. He was a habitual offender before that and has spent most of his life in prison.
Manson will not be eligible for parole until 2027, at which point he will be 93-years-old.
