Remember, you haven't been sentenced yet, you maroon.

It seems Joe Francis is sorry he said the jurors in his false imprisonment and assault conviction "should all be lined up and shot," because he emailed The Juice* with an apology. Well, his lawyers did, anyway.

"I deeply regret the remarks attributed to me in the interview with The Hollywood Reporter. They were hurtful and do not reflect my true feelings," Francis said int he statement. "While I disagree with the jury's verdict as I am completely innocent of the charges and intend to appeal, I was afforded a fair trial, and if I lose at the appellate level, I will reluctantly but fully accept the jury's verdict."

Francis also ranted about how THR didn't mention all the evidence in his favor even once, despite talking with Joe's lawyer at length, but that's what happens when you're convicted, see. Also, calling jurors "mentally f---ing retarded" won't get you anywhere in an appellate court.
