THIS DAY IN HISTORY - June 23
Teflon Don sentenced to life - 1992
Mafia boss John Gotti, who was nicknamed the “Teflon Don” after escaping unscathed from several trials during the 1980s, is sentenced to life in prison after being found guilty on 14 accounts of conspiracy to commit murder and racketeering. Moments after his sentence was read in a federal courthouse in Brooklyn, hundreds of Gotti’s supporters stormed the building and overturned and smashed cars before being forced back by police reinforcements.
Gotti, born and educated on the mean streets of New York City, became head of the powerful Gambino family after boss Paul Castellano was murdered outside a steakhouse in Manhattan in December 1985. The gang assassination, the first in three decades in New York, was organized by Gotti and his colleague Sammy “the Bull” Gravano. The Gambino family was known for its illegal narcotics operations, gambling activities, and car theft. During the next five years, Gotti rapidly expanded his criminal empire, and his family grew into the nation’s most powerful Mafia family. Despite wide publicity of his criminal activities, Gotti managed to avoid conviction several times, usually through witness intimidation. In 1990, however, he was indicted for conspiracy to commit murder in the death of Paul Castellano, and Gravano agreed to testify against him in a federal district court in exchange for a reduced prison sentence.
On April 2, 1992, John Gotti was found guilty on all counts and on June 23 was sentenced to multiple life terms without the possibility of parole.

'Gator Girl' removes alligator from Texas driveway
(UPI) -- A Texas man whose driveway was occupied by a 7-1/2-foot alligator that refused to budge received some help with the situation from the "Gator Girl."
Alkesh Patel said his adult son was leaving their Fort Bend County house Thursday morning when he alerted him to the intruder in their driveway.
"He was just going to school and saw this guy and said, 'Oh! dad, there's a big alligator,'" Patel told KPRC-TV.
Patel contacted the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, which called in the Gator Squad trapping service.
"Gator Girl" Christy Kroboth responded to the scene, dragged the gator into the front yard, and taped the reptile's mouth shut with the help of two sheriff's deputies.
Kroboth then placed a blanket over the gator's eyes to keep it calm.
"I was surprised Kroboth was by herself," Patel said. "And she came in and she knew exactly what she was doing, so... she did an excellent job of just capturing it real quick and getting it out of here."
Kroboth said the alligator will go to a farm in El Campo.
"So this neighborhood, as we pulled in, she should have been over there. What probably happened was she was wandering around at night looking for food," Kroboth said. "She's cold blooded. So the cement holds a lot of warmth. So the sun probably came up too fast and she got scared and went to hide. She picked the wrong hiding place, the garage."
Kroboth and the homeowner were praised on the Gator Squad's Facebook page.
"Gator Girl strikes again. Good job Christy Kroboth. Folks stay away from wildlife. If you see a gator out of water in a yard or road, keep your distance and call Gator Squad!" the post said
