Manson was receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment at the Bakersfield hospital, which is located nearly an hour away from the California prison.
Although he has been removed from behind bars for the time being, the 82-year-old criminal probably shouldn't get too comfortable outside his cell. He is currently serving 9 life sentences for conspiracy to commit the 1969 Manson Family murders.
Charles Manson was sentenced to death after being found guilty in a 1971 ruling in the California Supreme Court.
After his sentence was changed to "life in prison with the possibility of parole," he has since been denied parole 12 times.
During a court hearing when Manson was denied parole back in 2012, John Peck, a member of the panel that met at Corcoran State Prison, read some horrifying statements from Charles Manson.
"I'm special. I'm not like the average inmate," Peck read from Charles Manson's comments to a prison psychologist. "I have spent my life in prison. I have put five people in the grave. I am a very dangerous man."
Manson has been incarcerated for four decades now. One of his victims included the murder of director Roman Polanski's actress wife, Sharon Tate. She was eight-and-a-half months pregnant at the time, according to Daily Mail.
There were three other victims killed at Tate's Beverly Hills home when Manson ordered the members of his psychotic hippie followers to murder them.
The fifth victim that night was Stephen Parent. He was unfortunately on Tate's property in order to see if her caretaker had any interest in purchasing an AM/FM Clock radio.
As he was leaving, Parent was shot multiple times when he rolled down his window at the electric gate.
The night after these five horrific murders, Manson's followers murdered small business owners named Leno and Rosemary La Bianca at their Los Angeles home.
