Manson nabbed with another cellphone

mansondouble.jpgFor at least the second time, guards at Corcoran State Prison found a mobile phone in Charles Manson's cell on January 6. Prison officials are still investigating and wouldn't give any more details, except to say that Manson had called people in California, New Jersey and Florida with an LG flip phone found under his prison bunk in March 2009. That time he had 30 days added to his sentence, as if it mattered. Manson is on a life sentence (originally a death sentence) and comes up for parole from time to time, but it's purely a technicality. If you don't know who he is, google Sharon Tate.
