 Joe Francis Jail

Officials in Panama City Beach, Florida, attempted to halt the filming of Girls Gone Wild in 2003, prompting Francis to sue them for violating his First Amendment rights. The same officials arrested Francis for racketeering and released him on bond. During a hearing in July 2006, the judge disallowed the majority of the evidence and dismissed the majority of the charges in January 2007. Francis pleaded guilty to record-keeping violations and received a $1.6 million fine and community service. Francis later pleaded guilty to possessing contraband in his cell. He was imprisoned for 339 days and fined more than $60,000.

In January 2011, Francis brought three women to his home, which resulted in five charges: three misdemeanor counts of false imprisonment, one count of assault causing great bodily harm, and one count of discouraging a witness. On May 6, 2013, Francis was found guilty on all five charges. He could have faced up to five years in prison and a $13,000 fine. On May 22, Francis told The Hollywood Reporter that the jurors were “mentally… retarded” and should be “euthanized.” He later apologized for his remarks, but claimed that he had been manipulated by the media.
