Al (Alphonse) Capone
Al Capone was a notorious gangster who conducted his illegal enterprises in Chicago, Illinois, during the 1920's. In 1929, the FBI was ordered by the Attorney General to investigate the legitimacy of an affidavit that petitioned for a postponement of Capone's appearance in response to a Federal Grand Jury subpoena. The investigation established that facts within the affidavit were indeed false. Capone was tried and convicted of contempt of court on February 25, 1931. When Capone was convicted for income tax evasion, the Judge ruled that the sentence for contempt of court should be served concurrently with the tax evasion sentence.
