Exclusive interview with Joe Francis

Panama City – After acting as his own lawyer resulted in multiple warnings and one contempt of court fine, Joe Francis decided to lawyer up, hiring a Panama City firm to represent him in court.

Francis himself will be excused from court until closing arguments, so courtroom attendees won’t hear more from him until then. But as he was leaving court Thursday, WJHG caught up with Francis for an exclusive interview. Click on the video to hear what he had to say.

Warning: Some viewers may find Francis’ language or views offensive or disturbing.

    it's so obvious that these girls are only in it for the $$ it's disgusting. as a woman, i dont necessarily agree with what joe francis does for a living, but, these girls are seriously only gold-digging--if they didnt want to do GGW they didnt have to do it, lying about their age makes THEM guilty, not him!

    I agree - they should let the videos be evidence! Let's see what those girls really said on camera! Dont pay liars!

    I think they should show the GGW videos in the courtroom and let the jury decide if the girls are innocent. What other evidence is there? You can't believe what anyone says, just watch the videos and see what happened. Case closed, thank you.

    I think the videos of the girls where they show fake IDs and lie about their ages would be devastating to their case, so why aren't they letting this evidence into court? Joe will win, and if not, win on appeal because this case has "mistrial" written all over it. Don't send a message to young girls out there that you can do anything you want, because you can always blame somebody else and sue them!

    All they want is money, they shouldn't get a dime!

    I can't believe WJHG actually wanted an interview with this guy. I hope they got deloused afterwards.

    In my earlier post I certainly did not mean to imply that these girls were angels, and I especially did not mean to imply that they deserved to be rewarded monetarily. I quite honestly don't see where they have suffered any damages that were caused by GGW. That having been said, the GGW Gang is still guilty of child pornography and probably of engaging in sexual acts with minors; not just here in "Good ol' Panama City", but everywhere they go.

    Try sitting out on the beach and watch what these young kids do! The will do anything to make themselves look older and wilder! I'm not on any side here. Joe Francis is a pig -- but the girls are pigs as well. From what I heard, they know exactly what they've done!

    I personally partied at the rental house that GGW was filming and partying at. They were ONLY filming upstairs and there were 2 people checking EVERYONE'S ID before they went upstairs. Every bar tender was checking ID's. This was before the suit....
