Frank Sinatra was one of the most successful singers and actors in American history, the recipient of eleven Grammy Awards and an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance in From Here to Eternity.
But before all that the twenty-three year old Sinatra was arrested in 1938 on the charge of Seduction. After paying a $1500 dollar fine he was released. About a month later it was discovered that the plaintiff was married. The charge was changed to adultery and the fine was reduced to $500.
