Al Capone Trial Reenacted in Miami Courtroom

Al Capone Trial Reenacted in Miami Courtroom

Our Fort Lauderdale attorneys have learned that as part of Miami-Dade Circuit Court’s centennial celebration, actors recreated the notorious case of State of Florida vs. Alphonse Capone, Case No. 621. The reenactment occurred on Tuesday.

Miami officials arrested gangster Al Capone four times in May 1930 before he stood trial for perjury in a three-day trial in July 1930. The judge acquitted Capone, sending the crowd gathered in the courtroom to cheer. After the trial, Capone moved from his Miami Beach home to a 35-acre plot he owned in Broward County. He was imprisoned for tax evasion and served several years in jail before returning to his home in Palm Island.
