I am a Capone. .As Al
Capone’s grandniece and the last surviving member of the family to bear the
Capone name, I’m uniquely qualified to tell the behind the headlines story.
Also, I’ve lived the haunted legacy that is part and parcel of being related to
someone with such a notorious reputation. Through the use of personal
recollection, interviews with now deceased family members, exclusive access to
hundreds of personal letters, photographs and other documents, I have written a
recently published book, revised in (2015) Uncle Al
Capone – The Untold Story from Inside His Family, In it I present both a
portrait of the man and a detailed accounting of the turbulent wake left behind
by my grand uncle’s voyage through the troubled waters of mid-century America. www.unclealcapone.com/products.htm
This trial was conducted on Wednesday April 13, 2016 at the Goodman
Theater in Chicago as part of the American Bar Association annual
meeting. There were about 800 people in attendance. My uncle Al Capone
was acquitted of the murder at the St. Valentine's Day Massacre. This
was a mock trial as my uncle was never indicted but it was conducted by
real lawyers and real judges with real evidence. When the chair polled
the audience, which was mainly lawyers, the majority said Not Guilty.
