PRESCOTT JOURNAL MINER, Arizona, July 30, 1931
* Gangster Al Capone's tax evasion case
This 6 page newspaper has one column headlines on the front page: "CAPONE WILL BE SENTENCED TODAY", "Gangster Spends Last day Of Freedom Hiding From His Foes". On this day, Al "Scarface" Capone would change his plea to not guilty after learning he could get a long prison sentence for his tax evasion arrest.
Other news of the day throughout including various advertisements. Light browning with a little margin wear and tear, otherwise good. Should be handled with care.
