Francis Put on House Arrest

2/3/2009 4:36 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe FrancisJoe Francis has been released from custody -- but a Los Angeles federal judge has restricted the GGW honcho to home detention under electronic monitoring. Considering how dope Joe's homes are, that's not really much of a punishment.

He'll be under house arrest until his next hearing on February 11.

Francis was taken into custody yesterday after he showed up to court five hours late for a hearing associated with his upcoming trial on tax evasion charges.

Doris, Francis is the owner of "Girl's Gone Wild". His opinion of woman is not real high! He preys on young naive women.

Leave this man alone. What a waste of resources while others steal billions. The only reason he has been singled out for prosecution is jealously. This remind me of the total waste of our taxpayer monet prosecuting Tommy Chong. This is still America isn't it??? Hnag in there Joe. This too shall pass. mp

He's not just on house arrest- he's on electronic monitoring- IE- a tether. And unless the tethers are highly different in CA tha in MI, he'll have to stay w/in a certain distance of the phone jack it's attached to, or it will be set off. He probably won't be able to go into half of his rooms because of it- In our 4 bedroom house, the garage was too far to go.
