Al Capone's Miami Beach Home Being Restored-- Part 2

PRISON AND RETURN:  Charged and convicted of tax evasion in 1931, Capone was sentenced to eleven years in prison, much of it at Alcatraz.  released in 1939 and spent rest of his life at this mansion.

CAPONE'S END:  Capone contracted syphilis as a young man and never had it treated.  As he got older, dementia set in.  He suffered a cardiac arrest at the house on Jan. 25, 1947 and died at age 48.

MANSION RESTORATION:  MB America says the mansion was falling apart when it was purchased.  The new owner hopes to cash in on on the Capone mystique and rent it out to commercial, video and movie shoots.
