Following a brief marriage to Lana Turner, Dante was tried and convicted for the attempted murder of a rival hypnotist. Continuing his performances onstage, Dante expanded his operation to include cons like the Permaderm Academy, a fake cosmetics school, and Columbia State University, a diploma mill scheme. He amassed tens of millions of dollars until the FBI caught up with him following an interview on ABC's 20/20. Assets seized, Mr. Hypnotism was once again sentenced to prison. Dante says, I was a con artist. I was a good conman. I say what people want to hear, just like all conmen do."
