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.

Well Joe, it could be worse. It could be Florida. As I recall, you didn't enjoy your stay here much at all. About a year, wasn't it?

Miss you Joe!

I like it, Mark my words... In other words my pockets and connections are so deep, there's no way I'm going to jail. I don't know if I like him though. He's exploits the most prettiest girls. Something tells me he might be a vile human being. But thats not the determining factor as to weather or not he wins and continues to win.

He said one time on The Howard Stern Show that Tara Reid had loose smelly vagina. Now that's cruel. Somebody needs to knock him out on good time.

Joe you are one of the lowest creatures on the planet. You rape and torture and think you should not go to jail. No you should go to, prison, they should throw away the key. Then you will truly understand rape and torture- you low life

There's gonna be a Girls Gone Wild thing happening in his jail cell, and Joe will surely be playing the part of the girl.
