Joe Francis was found guilty this evening of attacking a woman at his mansion in 2011, as the Los Angeles City Attorney announced that the entrepreneur was convicted on five total charges.

They include one count of assault, three of false imprisonment and one of dissuading a witness from reporting.

The incident took place about two years ago when a trio of females accused Francis of taking them back to his home in Hollywood… and not allowing them to leave.

One claimed he slammed her head into the ground.

Francis, a good friend of Kim Kardashian and a number of other celebrities, will be sentenced this week and faces up to five years in prison.

Joe Francis was ordered to pay a staggering $20 million after a jury sided with casino mogul Steve Wynn in his slander claims against the Girls Gone Wild kingpin.

Wynn filed suit in 2010 after Francis claimed the Las Vegas giant had threatened to have him killed, taken out to the desert and buried over a gambling debt.

Wynn, obviously, denied the claims and sued for everything in the book.

Francis, Wynn

During the four-day trial, the casino owner called the accusation a "terrible lie." Joe is "unrepentant, vicious, out of control," said Wynn on the stand last week.

Among those called to testify was Grammy-winning record producer Quincy Jones, Francis' neighbor, a friend of Wynn's and an alleged witness to the claim.

Francis had insisted it was Jones who told him Wynn wanted him knocked off, but in court, the music producer said such conversations never took place.

Neither Francis nor Wynn were present when the verdict was read.

Joe Francis is accused of assault by a female - what else is new - but insists he never laid a hand on a girl who says he got physical with her at his mansion.

He says surveillance cameras will prove him right, too, as video captured a three-woman altercation at his home back in January - and he wasn't involved.

According to Francis, two of the girls were fighting each other and all three were escorted outta there for being unruly. There was no attack by Joe, period.

The ladies told the police that Francis grabbed one of them by the throat and hair, and slammed her head into the tiled floor of his house - more than once.

Francis was charged with one count of battery causing great bodily injury, but has fought it all the way, saying there isn't even a tiled floor near the scene.

Regardless, Pacific Community Police Station officials tell E! News he was booked on a misdemeanor false imprisonment charge and released today.

The City Attorney who charged Francis at the time is currently prepping to run for D.A., and Joe believes that the entire case is politically motivated.

It may very well be. He may very well be innocent. He remains a sleaze, however. Like it or not, that's not going to help his credibility very much.

Joe Francis is once again in legal hot water, finding himself in the middle of a police investigation after a woman told cops he pushed her to the ground.

The woman told police she met Joe at a Hollywood night club late Friday night and agreed to go back to his home, where they got into an altercation.

Joe shoved her to the ground, she claims, causing minor injuries. She left, called the police and filed a report naming the sleazebag as the assailant.

Douchenozzle? Yes. Batterer? Inconclusive.

The Girls Gone Wild kingpin is not a stranger to accusations of battery by women (see Nicole, Jayde) or running afoul of the law in general. It's quite common.

Just a few days ago, in fact, he was indicted for stiffing the Wynn Hotel in Vegas out of millions n gambling debt. As usual, he claims he's the victim here.

"I am a huge target for false allegations," he said in a statement. "My bodyguard, who is a reserve Sheriff, is always present at my house for any party."

Joe Francis has always seemed like a John Mayer-esque douchebag. But new legal document ratchet up the insults against the Girls Gone Wild founder to a whole new level.

As first reported by TMZ, 4th Street Media - the publishing company behind an upcoming tell-all written by Ryan Simkin, a former Francis employee Ryan Simkin - has filed legal papers in preparation of Francis' attempt to block sales of Simkin's book, "FLASH! Bars, Boobs, and Busted: 5 Years on the Road with Girls Gone Wild."

Multiple sources have referred to Joe Francis as a rapist. It doesn't get much more scandalous than that.

The memoir outlines obnoxiously lewd stories about Francis and his associates, specifically their drug use and treatment of women.

Filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, the documents describe Francis as:

Ashley Dupre, a.k.a. Spitzer Girl, went crazy in Florida for "Girls Gone Wild," as we reported earlier (and as Joe Francis was willing to pay $1M for her to do, before realizing he already had mucho archive footage of her).

That's funny enough, but it gets weirder (and skeevier). Ashley may have been underage when she was filmed naked on the "Girls Gone Wild" bus.

Derek Lowe Mug Shot

Her lawyer, Don Buchwald, says Ashley Dupre was born April 30, 1985, and the footage was shot between March 13 and March 20, 2003, making her ... 17!

Ashley Alexandra Dupre was a girl gone wild... at age 17.

But "Girls Gone Wild" CEO Joe Francis says even if she was 17, Florida and Federal law permits her to be filmed in any state of undress ... as long as she consents and there is no "sexual contact." Joe says (he would know) there was none.

However, in a statement, Joe Francis says GGW has a "corporate policy" not to use girls under 18, and thus has "delayed the release of [Ashley Dupre] nude footage on the Internet and are investigating the matter."

Somewhere, Eric Stapelman is smiling. Not just because he likes nude photos of hot girls, but because Francis is certainly shadier and more disliked than him.

Joe Francis Quotes

It is incomprehensible that Ms. Dupré could claim she did not give her consent to be filmed by Girls Gone Wild, when in fact we have videotape of her giving consent, while showing her identification.
