Judge to Joe: Rock, Meet Hard Place

3/6/2008 5:43 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Looks like Joe Francis is going to be stewing for a while longer in a Nevada jail cell, after a judge rejected his request to leave his current spot without getting nabbed by Florida prosecutors.

The porntrepreneur is facing trial in Nevada on tax evasion charges, and in Florida on charges related to filming underage girls. He could theoretically leave the Nevada jail, if he made bail, but would be extradited immediately to Florida to face the other trial. Sources in Florida tell TMZ that they have "no intention whatsoever" of letting Francis walk out of Nevada a free man.

Francis has been in this legal limbo for nearly a year. He continues to run his "Girls Gone Wild" empire from behind bars.

It's always good news when you can take the perverts off the street. Underage girls gone wild is a no-no.

How in the hell can he still run his so called empire behind bars? Unless Kim Kardashian and the rest of the Kardashian low lifes are on his board of directors. He belongs in jail and I hope he eventually extradited to Florida to face charges. It is beyond my understanding that young women would even want to participate in his disgusting business. Alcohol or not, there is no excuse!

Karma's a bitch. You tape little high school girls flashin their boobies and spread it all over the world for pedophiles to wack off to, you probably deserve more than rotting in jail for the rest of your pathetic existence.

Joe and his lawyer are idiots, post bond in NV, get extridited to FL and appeal the previous no bond ruling. He would win this and just have to post another large bond which he can afford. Why sit in jail for a YEAR? and then another YEAR! You are crazy Joe! So you might do another 60 days in FL jail while your bond appeal goes through, but you will have to go there anyway when your NV crap is done in 2011. You could have been out months ago! GET A NEW LAWYER! Unless you are in a FL jail, and putting PRESURE on the FL COURTS for bail, they will not give you a favorable ruling, plus it sounds like your FL case is crap, I bet the DA drops your charges when forced to go to trial. But they will be laughing that you stayed in jail all this time. Also none of your NV time will count towards your FL time, if you were to get convicted.
