Candy Stevens was a street name of a prostitute, Leona Stevens, who grabbed the attention only after she got married to the notorious murderer Charles Manson. Charles was an American cult leader whose supporters conducted numerous disgraceful killings in the late 1960s, which resulted in his life imprisonment.
Candy, Married To A Cult Leader
In September 1959, when Charles was facing a charge for his attempt to cash a U.S. Treasury check, he was defended by Candy. She claimed to be in love with Charles and pleaded the court to release him. This particular action led Charles to receive the 10-years suspended sentence from the jury. After he got released from the jail, he and Candy had their wedding in the same year.
After they married in 1959, his love shunned. Their tie did not last long, and they split up in 1963. Meanwhile, in April 1963, Candy gave birth to their child. They welcomed a son named Charles Luther Manson. Very little is known about their son, as he has been living his life avoiding his genealogy.
After his breakup with his second wife Candy, Charles was sent back to jail. However, it was not the first marriage for the ringleader of the Mansion Family cult.

The American criminal Charles's first wife was a teenage hospital waitress, Rosalie Jean Wills. They got married in West Virginia in January 1955 when he was at the prison sentence. After he got released from the jail, they moved to California. With Rosalie, he had a son named Charles Manson Jr. The pair had a divorce in the year 1958.
Since 1971, Charles was in Corcoran State Prison in California. However, the jail could not stop this old criminal from getting engaged with girls. Once again on 17 November 2014, the cult leader got involved with a girl called Afton ‘Star’ Burton while in prison. Afton Burton, who was 26-year-old at that time, couldn't marry Charles as he was sick.
Charles died on 19 November 2017 at the hospital in Bakersfield, California due to natural causes.
Career And Net Worth
Candy was not a famous figure before she married Charles. She came to the highlight only after her marriage. Prior that, she had a prostitution record. Besides her engagement as a *****, her career is quite perplexing to apprehend. So, her actual income and her annual revenue are quite obscure.
However, when she was in the relationship with Charles Manson, she used to enjoy the earnings of her husband whose net worth is estimated to be $400.
After Charles death, Candy's whereabouts and what she is doing now is not known.
Candy's birth name is Leona “Candy” Stevens. Being merely recognized as the wife of Charles Mansion, not much information about her is available in the wiki. Similarly, her age also remains a mystery like her professional career and earnings.
