"Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis has just been found guilty of assault -- and a slew of other charges -- after attacking a woman in his Hollywood mansion back in 2011.

The L.A. City Attorney just made the announcement ... Francis was convicted on five charges total, including assault, three counts of false imprisonment, and one count of dissuading a witness from reporting.

Francis was charged back in 2011 after three women accused him of taking them to his Hollywood home -- following a night out -- and refusing to let them leave. He was also accused of attacking one of the women, choke-slamming her head into his tile floor.

Francis faces up to 5 years in jail. A sentencing scheduling hearing is set for this week.

How great would it be to have a video of this tool bag in jail, sobbing as he takes his shirt off in front of a bunch of horny Aryan Brotherhood?

One of his ex-assistants/cameramen was my neighbor around '04-'05. He's been a s***bag & serial rapist for a long time (much of it overseas, and on tapes that he forced people to destroy). I'm glad they got him on one finally. He's rich though and has always had a way of getting out of trouble, but there are many many victims out there (many of whom probably have no recollection due to the alcohol and drugs he fed them before he raped them while they were unconscious). Hope he goes away for a long time.

What a nasty ass little prick. How he was able to bring any girl back home is beyond me. They were probably escorts or something.

Historically people like Joe Francis and Lindsay Lohan die young.
