Francis Yanked at 4:00 AM -- Nevada Bound?

5/16/2007 11:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe FrancisTMZ has learned that Joe Francis was taken from the county jail in Marianna, Fla., this morning at 4:00 AM by U.S. Marshals. It's unclear where he was headed -- though he's probably being sent to Nevada to face federal tax evasion charges. Sources tell TMZ that Francis could be in Nevada in a "few days."

Whatever happens to Francis in Nevada, he's expected to be back in Florida for a July court date to face charges of using minors in a sexual performance, as Judge Dee Dee Costello stipulated in Panama City yesterday. Bay County prosecutors wanted to keep Francis in Panama City, but lost their bid to do so in Federal court yesterday.

Filthy piece of trash. Whatever amount of time in the slammer won't be enough, especially for the charges involving the minors.

Hell f--k yeah! It is about time this arrogant bastard got his. You know, I would say he was a brilliant business man, I respect that. But, you have to represent yourself with some sort of decorum and he just doesn't have that. He's a lying, cheating, dirty, stuck-up prick and he deserves whatever is coming at 'em!!!!!

True to his entrepreneurial spirit, the ever inventive Joe Francis has found a way to capitalize on the many years of federal incarceration he is facing by recently announcing an upcoming addition to his super successful video lineup to be called "INMATES GONE WILD" featuring Francis himself in the 'lead', or should I say 'bottom' role. LOL

He's Boring now    

Have fun now that you are in Federal custody..those US Marshalls love to mess up with their "clients" especially during transport...especially when they play the musical federal pens game...

If you ever get out I'll bet you dont diss a judge ever again, not pay your proper taxes, nor even get close to filming anyone under 18---you picked about the 3 worst things a person should never do when dealing with the government.

You'd have gotten off easier with a murder rap, being polite and on time in court.

You and "your people" and "handlers" have messed up the whole Empire.

Next stop. GITMO!!! (jk)
He got himself into this mess. If he would a have settled something with the victims, respected the judge, and paid his taxes he would have avoided ALL of this. The tides are turning. The public is sick and tired of these celebrities getting away with breaking the law without consequences. They proved it with Joe and now with Paris.
