Bellatrix, Rodolphus, and Rabastan Lestrange, along with Bartemius Crouch Jr., are arrested

They are charged with using the Cruciatus Curse on Frank and Alice Longbottom in an attempt to discover the whereabouts of Voldemort; all of the accused are convicted and sent to Azkaban. Frank and Alice Longbottom are committed to St. Mungo’s Hospital for Magical Maladies and Injuries, driven permanently insane from the Cruciatus Curse.

Timeline Notes

We know that this happened shortly after Voldemort's downfall, as Dumbledore says it was "just when everyone thought they were safe." They likely happened sometime between November 1981 and very early 1982.
