Don Vito Collapses after Conviction

10/31/2007 3:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Don Vito has been found guilty of two counts of sexual assault on a child. He was acquitted on one count.

Vito, real name Vincent Margera, who is Bam Margera's outrageous uncle on MTV's "Viva La Bam," was accused of fondling three girls during a public appearance at a mall in a Denver suburb. The victims of the sexual assault were 12 and 13. After the verdict was read, Don collapsed to the floor and yelled, "Just kill me now!" Deputies restrained him -- and took his ass off to jail.

The verdict on those counts is still pending. Vito will be sentenced on December 20.

Truth    

Wow, this is sad. At appearances, Girls are always asking Don Vito to autograph their chests, feel them, etc. In my opinion, Vito probably wrongly assumed that these girls were like some of the wilder ones that frequent his appearances. I'm willing to bet money that the girls were all "dolled up like an adult" at the appearance and then the attorney had then appear very juvenile at the court house. To sway opinion by saying who could confuse the girls for 18+... but I heard a news report that the most popular costumes for 11 -13 year old girls have been "naughty" costumes... naughty nurse, naughty referee, naughty maid, etc. At some point, this country needs to exact some parental control and help kids be kids and not push kids to be adults.

Bam addressed this enitre situation on his Sirius radio show back when it first went to court. He also reminded people that Don Vito has no money, so suing him to get Bam's money doesn't work.

the truth is out there    

The charges were "fondling" which can be anything from bumping into them to rubbing their shoulder while shaking their hand.
This guy didn't rape anyone. It was a public appearance at a mall in Denver. I wouldn't be amazed if these kids are not just trying to cash in on a famous person's money even though is it is really Bam's money.
For all you people saying they hope he gets his in jail, you are just showing how ignorant you really are. You weren't there and if anyone said that you were "fondling" my child at a mall it would be pretty impossible for you to proove otherwise. So when you cast the first stone remember how the justice system really works in reality in the United States. When 2 girls are questioned for hours and hours by police they say what the cops want to hear after some time either for the attention or to get out of trouble. And yes I have seen 12/13 year old girls who look 18 because their parents do a terrible job at parenting and let them do anything they wish these days. Girls running around in tight outfits that scream "sex, sex, sex" and if you don't agree with me you have a screw loose or just plain stupid. Where were the parents at this thing? What about the 7 security guards for the public appearance that saw no fondling? Being famous in this country is getting to be a money ticket for people.

Anybody at any age wouldn't want that ugly ass pervert to touch them, famous or not pay for what you did , so no other (children) can be touched by you.

donkey punch    

Whether they said they were 18 or not, does not give this perver the right to fondle them. this sick ass needs to be fed to the people who know how to take care of this type of thing. the prisoners will handle this, and they well should.
keep watching "viva la bam", and enable this sick jack ass, or quit watching it and sink the whole ship.

Okay so this trailer park trash gets caught diddling some 12 year olds and some people feel sorry for him. He knows whats going to happen to him once they get a hold of him in jail. Please send him to the most violent jail possible so they can kill him. I will throw a party when that happens.

Justice served...............This reality show gave him the means to exploit children and he thought he could get away with his perverted ways. Sometimes justice does get served.
