    On December 20, 2007, Margera was sentenced to 10 years of probation, to be served in Pennsylvania.
    More Details Hide Details He was further ordered to not portray the character of "Don Vito" in any capacity (appearing on television, writing books, autograph signings) while serving his sentence. He was also ordered to register as a sex offender in Colorado and Pennsylvania, to receive an evaluation of his mental health and to work on his problems with alcohol. Throughout most of his life, Margera was obese and had difficulty exercising due to his weight. He also suffered from strabismus, which made him partially blind on one eye, as well as serious alcoholism. According to his nephew, Bam, he also suffered from depression following his conviction.
    There was an arraignment hearing on March 5, 2007, at which Margera pleaded not guilty.
    More Details Hide Details The trial started on October 22 in Golden, Colorado. Margera's attorney argued that his client had been playing his "goofy, outrageous and vulgar" television persona for the young teens, portraying Margera as a "benign bumbler", and arguing that Margera's signature arm movement may have been mistaken for breast fondling. The jury began to deliberate on the afternoon of October 30, returning on October 31. Margera was found guilty of two counts of sexual assault on a minor and acquitted on one count.
    During a preliminary hearing on February 1, 2007, Margera was represented by Pamela Mackey, the same lawyer who defended Kobe Bryant in 2003–04.
