Patty Hearst
Claim to fame: Grand-daughter of William Randolph Hearst, media mogul who was the basis of Orson Wells' Citizen Kane. She was kidnapped in 1974 by a group calling itself The Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA), and held for 57 days. She seemingly threw in with her captors, and was caught on tape robbing a bank with them. She escaped an ensuing shootout in which most of the gang perished (when their house burned down) and became a fugitive for nearly a year before she was captured. In 1976 she was convicted of bank robbery and sent to prison.
