Shared note

For their parts in Brinkley?s multi-million dollar schemes, his wife and employees were sentenced in January 1943. Minnie Brinkley pleaded nolo contendere and received a $5,000 fine and three years probation. Minnie was the wife of John R Brinkley, married August 23, 1913 and a second time in 1916 after his divorce from first wife Sally Wike was final. She assisted in many of the infamous "goat gland" operations performed by her husband. She may be said to have been as unscrupulous as he. At her funeral a ZZ Top song which mentions her husband and his Mexican radio stations was played.
