Vitale's case came to trial in 1977. His testimony lead to a number of alleged mobsters being indicted but all were acquitted when their defence lawyers cast doubt on Vitale's mental state by pointing out his self-mutilation and other odd habits. In the end only Vitale and his mafioso uncle were imprisoned and Vitale spent most of his time in a mental asylum. (23 March 1973)
