The Girls Gone Wild honcho was also sentenced to 36 months probation and has been ordered to complete a Level 3 Anger Management course.

He must also attend weekly psychological counseling for a year.

The judge expressed real concern with Joe's explosive temper, which was on full display in the assault and false imprisonment that got him convicted.

He was cuffed and booked. Bail will be set at $250,000.

This saga all started when three women accused Joe of taking them to his Hollywood home after a night out in 2011 and refusing to let them leave.

He was also accused of attacking one of them, choke-slamming her head into the floor. That led to criminal charges, and a jury found him guilty.

Francis was convicted on five charges, including assault, three counts of false imprisonment, and one count of dissuading a witness from reporting.

Joe said the jury is f--king retarded. Quote-unquote.

As recently as this summer, he filed documents asking for a new trial based on allegations of insufficient evidence. Clearly the judge was not swayed.

Enjoy, Joe.
