Joe Francis

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.

He hasn't ruined any lives... Nobody remembers the people on those tapes.. And frankly who cares... GGW has been out of the game for years... People criticize but he capitalized and even after multiple bad decisions over the years that has cost him hundreds of millions.. He's still ri$h

Why is this the big lead story?

You mean anonymous sources didn't tell you that Lamar Odom masterminded the 9/11 attacks?

odds are a judge may wind up turning down his claim faster then joe likes . i give it by the end of sept. Joe should accept it a judge did not buy his claims. besides he will be out of jail due to over crowding any way.
