    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

    "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.

    People use the term choke-slam so liberally nowadays that it's losing all meaning. The Undertaker is rolling over in his grave.

    Wasn't this guy already in jail for a long time? I seem to remember him being locked up in Florida for a while.

    this is franicis second time going to jail. he was arrested for have a female lie on a consent to appear on one of the videos saying she was over 18 but in reality she was under 18.

    the female family members found out and pressed charges. the place where he spent jail time for this was Nevada. since he did not want to serve jail in flroida.

    Looks like he is a career criminal:

    - In 2003 in Panama City Beach, Florida, officials attempted to halt Girls Gone Wild from filming. Francis sued the officials for violating his First Amendment rights. The same officials arrested Francis for racketeering. He was released on bond. At a July 2006 hearing, the judge disallowed most of the evidence and in January 2007 dismissed most of the charges. Francis pled guilty to record-keeping violations, was fined $1.6 million and sentenced to community service. Francis pled guilty for having contraband in his cell. He served 339 days and paid over $60,000 in fines

    -
    In April 2007, in Reno, Nevada Francis was indicted by a grand jury for two counts of tax evasion. The Department of Justice alleged that Francis claimed over $20 million in false deductions on his corporate returns in 2002 and 2003.

    -
    In September 2009, Francis pled guilty to misdemeanor counts of filing a false return and bribery. He received credit for time served. In November 2009, U.S. District Judge S. James Otero accepted Francis’ plea including $250,000 in restitution to the IRS.

    He shoulda presented it in court. With evidence like that he could get away with a marathon bombing.
