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.

Run Joe! Go on the lam and become a fugitive. We'd love to see you go out in a blaze of glory! Or you could just go to jail and become a gloryhole!

Most likely he will by his way out of jail. She or he or whatever it is has to live with what it did.

Well he is still not as innocent as OJ since he was "110% not guilty"
