The Manson Family: Where Are They Now?

Their murderous two-day rampage in the summer of 1969 left seven dead, including actress Sharon Tate. A look back at some of the group’s most famous members:

CHARLES TEX WATSON

THEN
Watson was an honor student and athlete from Texas who moved to Los Angeles and joined the Family. He has been described as Manson's "right-hand man" and took part in both nights of the killing spree.

NOW
Convicted of seven counts of murder, Watson was sentenced to life in prison in 1971. Now 70, he married, divorced and became a father of four while incarcerated. He also earned a degree in business management and was ordained as a minister in 1981. He is expected to have a parole hearing later this year.
