Convicted mass murderer Charles Manson was disciplined Monday for trafficking narcotics at California State Prison at Corcoran, where he is serving a life sentence, corrections officials said.
Manson is serving time for seven murders committed while he led his hippie-style “family” in a murderous rampage during the late 1960s. He appeared before a chief deputy warden at the prison Monday and was found guilty of the narcotics trafficking charge.
Prison officials ordered Manson into administrative segregation immediately after the hearing, said Sylvia Gonzalez, a spokeswoman for the the prison. That imposes restrictions on Manson’s contact with visitors and his use of prison facilities. Few details of the narcotics case were made public Monday.
