Joe Francis: Trial Gone Hollywood

4/14/2008 6:55 PM PDT
Now, after a year of hard knocks, "Girls Gone Wild" pimpresario Joe Francis is getting all the prison breaks -- he'll get to sit through his tax evasion trial close to home.

A federal judge gave Joe the change of venue to So Cal because most of the underage girls folks who are going to testify in the case are there, not in Reno. Witnesses gone wild!

The trial was supposed to start Aug. 26 in Reno, but now the date is expected to be pushed back. It's gonna be a wild summer in the 'bu!
