Joe Francis Goes Wild, Goes to Jail

Things aren't going so well for 'Girls Gone Wild' Founder Joe Francis:
A federal judge in Panama City, Fla., on Thursday ordered "Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis jailed for contempt of court in a civil suit brought by seven young women who claimed the entrepreneur's film crews had placed them in sexually explicit situations.

Francis, the Santa Monica-based multimillionaire who has made a fortune selling risque videos of scantily clad coeds, was ordered by U.S. District Judge Richard Smoak to surrender to court by noon Thursday, but hadn't done so by mid-evening.

Francis told the Associated Press late Thursday that Smoak "had lost his mind."

"This judge has gone as far as to call me the devil and an evildoer," he said. "It is a case of a judge gone wild."
First of all, he should go to jail just for making that corny-ass remark.

Also, I'm not defending this scumbag by any means, but this lawsuit? These seven young women trying to sue Francis for the Girls Gone Wild film crew putting them in sexually explicit situations? Get real. You girls know damn well what GGW is all about. Come on, now.

I'm sure that if someone with a camera asks me to do the things they do on GGW I'd tell them to go screw themselves.

Someone on idontlikeyouinthatway.com said it best: I hope he gets raped with a broom.

I wonder if he will be able to maintain his deep tan and perfectly messed up/spiked hair while in prison? All in all, I call bullshit on the judicial process for this. These girls know what's up. Panama City is entirely too close to the good ol boys network of backwoods, morality police.
