27. Between 1954 and 1967, Manson was frequently imprisoned for pimping, robbing, and violating parole
Despite committing ‘eight serious disciplinary offenses, three involving homosexual acts’ at his next facility, Manson was released over a year early in May 1954. Within a year, he was married, but like his mother found no stability in wedlock, and was in and out of prison for the next 12 years for offenses ranging from taking stolen vehicles across state lines, forging cheques, pimping out teenage girls, and parole violation. He served the final years of this period at Terminal Island, Los Angeles, and in 1967, aged 32, he had spent over half his life behind bars.
