DECENCY AT THE BAR

Authors

Abstract

One day, during the trial of the notorious Al Capone in the Federal Building in Chicago, immediately after an adjournment, officers stepped up to a man by the name of D'Andrea in the corridor outside the court room and removed from his person a business-like looking gun. The gentleman so unburdened is said to have been Mr. Capone's bodyguard, his attendant inside and outside the court room. After that, Mr. Capone had to get along without that particular guardian, for Judge Wilkerson, before whom the trial was conducted, ordered the henchman confined in jail. After the main case had been concluded, Mr. D'Andrea was adjudged by Judge Wilkerson to be in contempt of court and ordered locked up for six months.
