John Joseph Gotti, Jr. was an American mafia and the head of one of the most powerful American mafia families - Gambino. He was constantly involved with murders, conspiracy to commit murders, loan sharking, heroin dealing, racketeering, obstruction of justice, illegal gambling, committing underground crimes, tax evasion, etc. Gotti was born in a poor family of many siblings in New York and therefore turned to petty crimes from a very young age. As he grew up and made more contacts in the underworld, he became one of the proteges of Gambino family and after leading a series of organized crimes, he was made the head of the family. He was soon known for his outspoken and ostentatious persona all over America. He was also the hot topic amongst the American journalists and was known by the names of ‘The Drapper Don’ for his expensive suits and vanity and ‘The Teflon Don’ as no legal charge ever seemed to have stuck to him for a long time. But he was finally convicted in 1992 on the grounds of racketeering and murder and was sentenced to life in prison, where he died of throat cancer 10 years later.
