The judicial system has prevailed for Girls Gone Wild CEO Joe Francis today.
The judge in his tax evasion case has just set forth a sentence that does not include more jail time.
The douchebag is a free man!
Instead, a binding plea deal had Joe shelling out $249,705, plus a fine of $10,000 to the IRS, which completely covers his total restitution.
With this whole mess over and done with, expect to be bombarded with Girls Gone Wild crap! (He needs to make all that money back!)
Shortly after his release, Joe announced plans for a "dynamic growth" to the franchise, including an uplift for Girls Gone Wild magazine, enhanced mobile video content, and a new reality series for Mark Cuban’s HDNet cable channel.
Are you sure you don't want to throw him in jail, judge?
