“Upon arrest, Manson would identify himself as ‘Charles Manson also known as Jesus Christ’, although he would later announce in court that he hadn’t decided what he was or who he was”

Simon Davis is the first truly independent trial lawyer to write about the notorious Manson Family murder spree of 1969.
