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.

LA judges are weak. The judge should have thrown him in the county jail, just like the federal judge in Panama City, FL, did who wouldn't take Joe's narcissistic crap.

We need your help right now, to save Obama's visionary green Recovery Plan in the U.S. Senate.

Americans widely support the Recovery Package, but the right wing is mobilizing to kill it. Your Senators are voting on the bill in the next few days.

THIS IS OUR LAST CHANCE TO ACT. Please call right now:

1. Call 1-866-544-7573 - This will take you to the Congressional switchboard, toll-free. Ask for your Senators' offices. If you don't know who your two Senators are, simply tell them which state you live in.

IMPORTANT: Lines may be clogged. Please keep calling back to get through to your two Senators' offices.

2. What to say:

Please pass President Obama's Recovery Plan, with $500 million in funding for the Green Jobs Act. Thank you!

3. Forward this email to 10 friends.

4. Tell us how it went: Email team@greenforall.org.

Right now, Senators' offices are counting every single call that comes in either for or against the Recovery Plan. Even if you just leave your zip code and stammer out a line of support for the act, it could have a major impact on how your Senators vote.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for your quick action.

P.S., Almost 20,000 of you have emailed your elected officials about the Recovery so far. If you haven't already, take action online.

Two questions:

Why hasn't his lawyer used the Daschel Defense?

Why hasn't Obama nominated Francis for a cabinet position yet?

That's Right. Joe Francis should be nominated for Secretary of Health and Human Services now that Daschle is out. With his experience, Francis is perfect for that position.

I by far am not jeoulous of this guy he's probably cool. But all the UNDERAGE girls is way overboard. It's the immature girls aswell. But the fact is HE's how old with 13,14,15,16,17.......................?'s it's easy to loose touch with reality when you don't work and have a lot of money. The problem probably was bush had the feds's hands tied and now obama is in charge.

This whole tax evasion thing is hilarious. Joe's CPA/CFO should be the one in jail. He's actually the one who deducted all the expenses and signed off on the tax returns. Then he decided to turn Joe in and collect the tax cheat fee from the IRS. I don't care for Joe Francis or his company, but as a CPA I think Joe's accountant should be the one on house arrest.
