Brian Peppers has competition.

Sex offender sentenced to more than 15 years, lifetime probation



CONCORD Sex offender Paul Peters has been sentenced in Federal court to serve 15 years in prison and lifetime probation for possession of child pornography.

Paul Peters, age 50, of 32 S. State St. in Concord, NH, was arrested this summer as part of statewide child pornography investigations led by the New Hampshire Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The investigation led to a search of Mr. Peters' apartment where a large number of images and movies of child pornography was found.

Peters pleaded guilty in September to one count of possession of child pornography and was sentenced on February 21, 2008 in federal court.

This thread disappointed me. I wanted to see what type of contest Brian Peppers was sponsoring.

Does anyone ever find it odd that some guys just totally look like a sex offender? I mean, if someone posted this pic and asked what I thought of this guy the first thing I'd say is he looks like a sex offender.

Also, nobody beats Peppers!

Is that what happens to your eyes when you look at child pornography?

He won't last 15 years in prison on a charge like that.

Not as bad as Peppers, because, all things being somewhat equal, midgets are going to win. Make no mistake, though. That is a weird-looking, fugly person.

Arrest, trial, and conviction

On August 18, 2006, Vincent Margera was arrested at the Colorado Mills Mall in Lakewood, Colorado for allegedly groping three underage girls (two 12-year-olds and one 14-year-old) inappropriately at an autograph signing and was subsequently held with bail set at USD$50,000.[5] He posted bond around 10:00 p.m. the following Monday. As a condition of his bond, Margera was ordered not to possess any alcohol, drugs, or weapons, and is not permitted to contact the victims.[6]

During a preliminary hearing on February 1, 2007, the arresting officer, Melissa Mayne, testified that Margera called her and a fellow officer "psycho bitches" during his arrest. He is represented by Pamela Mackey, the same lawyer who defended Kobe Bryant.[7] There was an arraignment hearing on March 5, 2007 at which he pleaded not guilty. A motions hearing occurred on May 25, 2007 and a five-day jury trial was scheduled to begin on August 27, 2007.[8] In August, Margera was accused of 12 felony counts for violating his bail conditions in August and if convicted on those counts he could receive up to 18 months in prison.[9]

The criminal trial started October 22 in Golden, Colorado. In court on October 24, Margera's attorney argued he was playing his "goofy, outrageous and vulgar" television persona for the young teens.[10] The girl accusing Margera was "shocked" by his actions, according to witnesses.[11] The prosecutor said Margera was "out of control during this public event. He was so intoxicated that he peed his pants while with these children."[12] On the second day of testimony, a teenage boy testified that "he was sitting near the table where Margera was giving autographs and saw him grab at girls who came around the table for photos".[13] On Friday October 27, the third day of the trial, defense attorneys portrayed Margera as a "benign bumbler" and argued that Margera's signature arm movement may have been mistaken for breast fondling.[14] His sister-in-law April Margera told the court "she has never seen Margera fondle anyone, on or off the show."[15] On cross-examination, the prosecutor asked April if she saw her brother-in-law fondle girls; when she said "no", the prosecutor "showed her three pictures, one of Margera apparently trying to kiss a woman's breast and two of him apparently trying to fondle women's breasts."[15]

The defense and prosecution made their closing statements on October 31 and the jury started to deliberate the case in late afternoon.[16] Defense attorneys "concede he was profane and outrageous but contend he was just playing the role of Don Vito."[17] On October 31 he was found guilty of two counts of sexual assault on a minor and acquitted on one count. After hearing the conviction, Margera collapsed on the floor and yelled, "Just kill me now!" as guards restrained then removed him from the room. On November 1, 2007, he was put on suicide watch.[18][19] He was held at the Jefferson County Detention Facility until his sentencing on December 20, 2007. [20] He faced between 2 years to life in prison.

Sentencing

On December 20, 2007, Margera was sentenced to 10 years of "serious" probation in which he will be ordered to serve in Pennsylvania. 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 possibly Pennsylvania, and to receive an evaluation of his mental health, and to work on his problems with alcohol. [21] On January 18th, 2008, he pled guilty to violating bail conditions by possessing cocaine and was sentenced to two years of probation.
