Trials of the 1920's

Summary

Al Capone was an awful person who murdered countless people. He murdered many people and simply called it business. No matter if you are a rich criminal or a poor statesman you have to pay your taxes. Al Capone was not pinned for the killing of others but he was put away for 11 years because of tax evasion. He never payed his taxes even though he had the money to.

Personel

Al Capone was the gangster who got arrested. The people who were involved with getting him arrested were Elliot Ness, Frank Wilson, and the judge was James Wilkerson.

Significance

Al Capone lost the case and was sentenced to 11 years in prison. This case was decided by the evidence from several folders that had handwriting to tie Capone to a smoke shop that was a front for his business. This mattered because if they didn't get him pinned for tax evasion he would have continued to kill people.
