Twenty years ago to this month, the feds finally nailed Godfather John Gotti, convicting him after several failed attempts.
As the FBI points out on its website, he was known as the “Dapper Don” for his nice threads and the “Teflon Don” for his ability to avoid convictions.
To commemorate the victory, the FBI has posted surveillance video of Gotti in the 1980s and 1990s.
Gotti died prison in 2002.
In the end, his son John (Junior) Gotti proved to be the Teflon Don. The feds failed to convict him on multiple charges after four times and finally gave up.
