Sentenced to community service for blowing his nose on a videographer at a 2019 concert in New Hampshire, according to court paperwork Marilyn Manson has completed time at an organization that provides meeting space for Alcoholics Anonymous and Al-Anon for families of alcoholics to “achieve a more meaningful life through recovery.”
In January the musician spent 20 hours at the Windsor Club of Glendale, a California nonprofit organization and a certificate of completion was filed by the Assistance League of Los Angeles with a New Hampshire court on January 30. Manson had to provide and proof of his service by February 4.
Manson, whose legal name is Brian Warner, pleaded no contest in September of 2023 to the misdemeanor charge in Laconia, about 30 miles north of Concord, the state capital. The no contest plea means the defendant did not contest the charge but did not admit guilt.
The musician was originally charged with two misdemeanor counts of simple assault on August 19, 2019 stemming from the encounter with the videographer at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford. The second charge, alleging that he spit on the videographer, has since been dropped. Manson was also fined and is required to remain arrest-free and notify local police of any New Hampshire performances throughout the next two years.
In 2021, Manson initially pleaded not guilty to both charges with his lawyer stating that the type of filming the videographer was engaged in commonly exposes videographers to “incidental contact” with bodily fluids.
In recent years several other women have sued Marilyn with allegations of sexual and other abuse, most of which have been dismissed or settled, including a suit filed by Game of Thrones actor Esmé Bianco.
