The uncle of Viva La Bam star Bam Margera was charged with two counts of sexual assault on a child on Wednesday.
Last week police arrested Vincent Margera, 50, after a signing at a Lakewood, Colorado, skate park. According to MTV.com he is accused of “inappropriately fondling or groping two girls, ages 12 and 14, during two separate incidents at a signing event at Woodward Skatepark at Colorado Mills mall Friday night. He was held in jail without bond until Monday, when he posted $50,000 bond and was released.”
Both counts are class-four felonies, though the charges don't necessarily carry a mandatory prison term. If convicted, however, Margera could face two years in prison and/or probation that could last from a mandatory 10 years up to lifetime supervision.
Margera is being represented by Pamela Mackey, the lawyer who served as counsel for Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant in his sexual-assault case in Colorado.
“Mackey filed a motion requesting that Margera be allowed to leave Colorado and return to his home in Pennsylvania, and that he be allowed to travel for business, but the court rejected that petition. He is currently not allowed to leave the state without the court's permission, but district attorney's office spokesperson Pamela Russell said the travel restrictions will be revisited during Margera's next court appearance on August 28.”
What a jackass…
