  • D-bag Joe Francis is in trouble

“Girls Gone Wild” d-bag Joe Francis has found himself in more trouble. TMZ reports that the smarmy mogul has been convicted of assault after attacking a woman in his Hollywood mansion in 2011.

Francis also has been convicted of “false imprisonment” after forcing three women to stay at his pad after picking them up inL.A.; he “choke-slammed” one woman’s head into his tile floor in a fit of rage. And to top it all off, he has been convicted of “persuading a witness from reporting.”

Add this to his tremendous $7.5 million loss against Steve Wynn in a defamation suit and you’ve got quite a class act. Francis is looking at up to five years in prison, and we hope he gets all of it.
