'Girls Gone Wild' producer given community service
Advertisements [?]
<snip>

"The multimillionaire founder of the popular Girls Gone Wild video empire was sentenced to community service today after the company pleaded guilty to federal charges of failing to monitor the ages of the women it films.

Mantra Films Inc. also agreed to pay $1.6 million in fines for using drunken 17-year-olds in videos it filmed on Panama City Beach during spring break and failing to properly label its DVDs and videos as required by federal law.

U.S. District Judge Richard Smoak told company founder Steve Francis he added the community service to the fine because it did not appear a fine would be a meaningful punishment to the 33-year-old Francis, who makes an estimated $40 million a year."

"It does not take a very brave man to go out and corner a girl in the middle of spring break who had four drinks," Smoak told Francis."
