Joe Francis headed to Florida to face charges


Joe Francis is evidently ready to face the fire in Florida.

During a brief hearing Monday before U.S. Magistrate Robert McQuaid, defense lawyer Fred Atcheson gave the court a $1.5 million cashier's check to cover Francis' bail on tax evasion charges.

Francis, 34, has been jailed on both sides of the country for nearly a year, caught in a tug-of-war between federal prosecutors in Nevada and state attorneys in Florida.

Most recently, the "Girls Gone Wild" porn mogul has been sitting in a Nevada jail, but Francis is also in trouble with cops in Panama City, Florida for taping underage girls for his videos.

Francis' lawyer told a federal judge in Reno that Joe will be headed back to Panama City on Wednesday to deal with his charges there.
