Joe Francis coming back to Florida for hearing



Tbdjoefrancis031108 Much to the behest of fathers everywhere, jailed Girls Gone Wild mogul Joe Francis is returning to Florida. It’s not all margaritas and camcorders now, though, since his trip to Panama City is to face charges of filming underage girls.

The AP says defense attorney Fred Atcheson coughed up a $1.5 million cashier’s check to cover Joe’s bail on tax evasion charges in Nevada so he can come to Florida for a court appearance on Wednesday for four felony and two misdemeanor charges in a case that goes back five years.

We certainly hope he can get back to Nevada to face his tax evasion trial in August — he’s only facing 10 years in prison and $500k in fines for that.
