Joe Francis Pleads Guilty, Faces More Penal Pain

4/23/2007 2:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Francis"Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis just pleaded guilty to one count of criminal contempt, and is still facing more than three weeks of hard time in the Florida jail that, as TMZ told you earlier today, is driving him crazy.

Francis was jailed earlier this month on contempt charges stemming from failed negotiations over a case involving seven women who claimed they were victimized by Francis and his cameras. Under the plea deal, Francis will be fined $5,010 and was sentenced to 35 days in jail, minus time served, meaning he'll have 23 days to go.

But that's not it for Francis -- he still faces the wrath of state officials, who want Joe for bringing cash and prescription drugs into the county lockup. The original plan, according to the Bay County Sheriff, was to arrest Francis once he's done with his federal jail time.

He's Boring now    

That other charge can bring a bit more hard time than whats he doing right now. Thats a hard line felony and the kind that can get him sent to State or Federal Prison vs the County lock up.

He'll pay dearly for protection there, glad he can afford it, but the protection usually just means he doesnt get killed and gets to be abused by a select inmate or Group of inmates vs the entire population.

Would love to see a film of that, inmates gone wild, on the founder of all this madness.

Put his crap in with the Gangsta Rap that Sharpton claimed he was going to clean up.

He truly is a dirt-bag and will get everything he deserves...I think this will play out with Joe doing some "serious" time.

As much as I loathe Joe, I do not hate hot-naked-young-chics acting wild...I couldn't help but pass along this link:

Karma? Maybe. Funny? Completely. Just knowing that he brought cash and drugs into jail is enough for me to envy him slightly--must've paid some guards off. Maybe he showed them his boobs.
