The Owner Of Girls Gone Wild Gets Off Too Easy

The judge in this case gave the owner, Joe Francis, of GGW a very lenient sentence for behavior that amounted to the sexual exploitation of minors.  Having to serve only eight hours a month for thirty months of community service is a joke.  People who commit these types of crimes typically serve jail or prison time.

The judge's statement that this sentence was harsher on Mr. Francis and the company than a money sanction is ludicrous.   

The next thing we are going to see are numerous lawsuits and huge jury awards, which will be the end of this company and hopefully put an end to this type of entertainment.

Mr. Francis appears to have known that lawsuits were inevitable. Recently I watched a television show displaying his enormous mansion located in Mexico.  You have to wonder if Mr. Francis has purchased property south of the border in an attempt to become "judgment proof."

I also think we are letting many of the woman involved in these incidents off the hook too easily.  If a drunken man stripped down in the middle of Main Street and happened to be photographed, I doubt that he would be considered a victim.

The story about the seventeen year old girl who is alleging rape is something we would expect to happen when GGW enters a bar and begins taping.  The types of people who are employed in this type of "entertainment" are warped and likely to take advantage of  drunken girls.  Reportedly, there is a pattern of GGW employees getting girls drunk and luring them onto the company bus.  In my opinion, there should be laws passed to discourage this type of an industry from growing further. 

The seventeen year old girl's statement that the prosecution is not doing enough sounds pretty silly.  After all, she cannot identify the man she was with and the prosecution has sent out subpoenas to GGW in an attempt to identify the people who were working for the company when the incident happened.  If the man is eventually identified, I hope there will be corroborating evidence, since the victim's statement by itself will not be enough to convict.
