Girls Gone Wild

Local prosecutors are still fighting to keep their evidence in the Joe Francis/Girls Gone Wild case.

State Attorney Steve Meadows’ office filed a response to the defense's motion to suppress all of the evidence.

Francis and a number of his Mantra Productions crew members were arrested during Panama City Beach's 2003 spring break season.

They were accused of video taping underage girls performing sex acts. Francis is accused of committing a sex act with an underage girl and of racketeering.

But Francis' lawyer claims the Sheriff's Office illegally searched and seized all of the evidence in the case.

Prosecutors responded to every one of the defense's arguments. There’s no word as to when the judge will make a decision about suppressing the evidence.

The case is due to go to trial later this year in Panama City.
