Girls Gone Wild Founder Gets Probation on Tax Evasion

Joe Francis, age 36 and founder of the lewd soft-porn series “Girls Gone Wild”, is on 1 year of probation after filing false tax returns and bribing jail workers. He already served 301 days of jail time in acceptance of his plea deal. “No additional incarceration is neccessary,” said US District Judge S. James Otero last Friday. Francis will be paying back about $250,000 in restitution to the IRS and a $10,000 fine. A former tax account is to blame, accord to Francis, for the trouble he was in. Francis says that the account attempted to defraud him and turn him into authorities so he could collect some IRS reward money. Original charges against Francis accuse him of $20 million in fraudulent tax deductions.
