Rich Scumbag $500,000 Less Rich; Still As Much Of A Scumbag

Girls Gone Wild auteur Joe Francis, perhaps looking for a little variation in his diet of anal violation, is now getting ass-raped by the feds. Mantra Films, the company responsible for Francis' contributions to cinema, "pleaded guilty to charges that it failed to create and maintain age and identity documents for performers in sexually explicit films that it produced and distributed." The plea calls for $2.1 million in fines and restitution, half a million of which is to be paid by Francis personally. Oh, Joe; if only you'd had sex with that Assistant Attorney General like she wanted you to, none of this would have happened.
