'Girls Gone Wild's' Joe Francis convicted of assault

Joe Francis faces up to five years in prison after he was convicted of terrorizing three women in 2011. The "Girls Gone Wild" founder was convicted of three counts of false imprisonment, one count of dissuading a witness from reporting a crime and one count of assault, which caused great bodily injury the Los Angeles City Attorney said.

The victims said they were celebrating a college graduation at Supper Club in Hollywood, Calif., on Jan. 29, 2011 when they encountered Francis, 40, and had a brief interaction. As the club was closing, Francis grabbed one of the women by the hand and took her to his limo. Two of the woman said later that they were just being taken to a parked car nearby. The limo driver brandished a sheriff's badge and refused to let them exit the limo.

The City Attorney's office said that Francis brought them to his residence and a physical altercation ensued. Francis grabbed one of the women by the throat and hair and slammed her head into the tile floor four times. Afterwards, Francis let the women go with a warning not to call the police, but they didn't listen. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.

If you, or someone you know has been charged with false imprisonment, assault, or any other type of crime, it is essential to hire an experienced Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer who can aggressively defend the serious charges against you.
