Convicted killer Charles Manson has been permitted to leave California's Corcoran State Prison where he has been incarcerated since 1971. The mass murderer was reported to have been transported from the state prison late this afternoon and taken to a Bakersfield hospital located one hour away for treatment.

Charles Manson: is his time up?

At this time it is not known exactly what health issues Manson, now 82-years-old is suffering from. All that is known at this time is that he is listed by officials as seriously ill and no other details could be divulged at this time.

A spokeswoman for the prison, Terry Thornton confirmed Manson has taken ill and had to be taken to a hospital for treatment. She also added that federal and state laws forbid her from commenting on the inmate's private medical details.

Will Charles Manson make it out of the hospital alive?

Manson and other members of his cult "family" are well-known around the globe for the gruesome murder of actress Sharon Tate and six others that took place in 1969 in Los Angeles during a two-day killing spree famously referred to as "Helter Skelter." Charles Manson spent decades locked behind bars and has been up for and denied parole one dozen times over the years.

Manson, never a model prisoner, has been in trouble numerous times throughout the years, most recently for having a cell phone and a homemade weapon while incarcerated.

Manson will be up for parole for the 13th time in 2027 (at which time he will be 92-years-old). It is predicted by all involved that Manson, should he live ten more years, will be denied parole once again.

The world has lost more than one hundred beloved Celebrities and entertainers including Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher, George Michael, Prince, and David Bowie, to name a few on the list, and Charles Manson is still alive and kicking.

Some would ask where is the justice behind it all? Charles Manson (upon medical treatment) will be immediately transported back to the California State Prison where he will continue serving his sentence.
