Arrestato un sostenitore di Charles Manson.


Charles Manson supporter arrested after he tried to smuggle a cell phone into  jail for the cult leader

A follower of Charles Manson has been  arrested for allegedly trying to smuggle a cell phone inside a California prison  where the mass murderer is housed, authorities said Tuesday.

Craig Carlisle Hammond, 63, was arrested  Sunday for investigation of conspiracy, possession of an illegal communication  device and attempting to bring a cell phone into a prison.

He was taken to jail and was released after  posting bail. He is scheduled to be in court next month

Hammond had a wrist watch cell phone that was  found by a correctional officer at Corcoran State Prison in an area where the  device is prohibited, authorities said.

The phone never got into Manson’s  hands.

However, this isn’t the first time that the  notorious cult leader who is serving a life sentence for orchestrating a series  of gruesome murders more than 40 years ago has been caught trying to communicate  with the outside world.

Manson has been found with a smuggled cell  phone twice in the past four years.

In 2009, Manson was found with a phone and he  had been calling and texting people in California, Florida, New Jersey and  British Columbia.

Two years ago, he also was found with a  phone


Follower: Hammond, who goes by the name 'Gray Wolf', was released after paying bail 

Recent legislation in California makes it a  misdemeanor to smuggle a cell phone into a prison, punishable by a fine of up to  $5,000.

Hammond goes by the name Gray Wolf that was  given to him by Manson and regularly visits the 78-year-old prisoner, according  to the Los Angeles Times

This incident comes just weeks after one of  Manson’s followers was denied parole.

The state’s parole board had recently  approved the release of 70-year-old Bruce Davis, who was convicted in two  Manson-related murders, since he has served more than four decades in  prison.

Governor Jerry Brown reversed that decision  and ordered Davis to remain in jail after having a meeting with the Los Angeles  district attorney.

Davis would have been only the second  Manson-related murder defendant to be granted parole since the killing spree  began in 1969.
