Free to Go Wild

Avoids Jail

11/6/2009 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Francis is officially a free man -- and won't be going back to jail after pleading guilty to filing false tax returns.

Joe Francis: Click to watch
We were outside court today when Joe emerged victorious -- after the judge sentenced him to time served, $250,000 restitution and a $10,000 fine. He could have faced up to 10 years in prison.

He said he's now ready to get back to his "clean business" ... of getting barely legal girls to take off their tops.

Emerged victorious? WTF are you idiots talking about he plead guilty. He was not victorious. If he was acquitted, then he would be victorious.

What do u expect from a rich white man in America that made his millions from pushing child pornography? (I'm sure at least half of those chicks were under 18) I bet the judge was an old white man who's a big fan and has at least six Girls Gone Wild dvds!!



Meanwhile....Wesley Snipes was sentenced to three years in federal prison for three misdemeanor counts of failing to file tax returns!!

Welcome to America!!! The land of equal rights!!!

He has a Mother? Can she possibly RESPECT his work? It looks like his money has gone to her for her facial "upkeep". How old is she anyway?
