Mark My Words

I Won't Be Going to Jail

Joe Francis
tells TMZ, his 270-day jail sentence for assault and false imprisonment is "ridiculous" and "absurd" ... and he won't rest until it's thrown out.

As we reported, Francis was sentenced Tuesday for assaulting a woman at his home in 2011 and falsely imprisoning her friends, but on his way out of jail moments ago ... he still insisted, "I'm one hundred percent innocent."

Francis says he has appealed the jail sentence, which means he won't have to turn himself in until a judge shoots down his request ... which could theoretically take years.

But Francis says it's a non-issue anyway ... because he's still sure he'll emerge victorious in the end.

A few weeks at Griefside Luxury "rehab", maybe some brief mansion-arrest, followed by a multi-million-dollar interview and TEN-part docu-special on his redemption. Sounds fair - he's worth more than Linds.

And this is why I think Martha Stewart is pimp! She served her time for some bull-ish that happens everyday on Wall Street and dudes like Joe Francis and Floyd Mayweather act like little b words after beating women and being sent off to jail! Lame.
