CRIME, did media entrepeneur rape wannabe softcore performer? [MP]

(Photo from LA Times, more photos here)

Joe Francis (depicted on the left), the creator of Girls Gone Wild, was fined $2.1 million for violating federal law protecting minors from being used in pornography. See LA Times (Claire Hoffman).

Hoffman claims to have been attacked by Francis, but the LA Times left her on the case.

Back to the LA Times story.

[In Melrose Park, Ill., after a nightclub event sponsored by "Girls Gone Wild"] Jannel Szyszka alleged that on June 1 Francis gave her alcohol and brought her onboard a bus to be filmed — with her consent. She alleged that Francis then forced himself on her even though, she said, that she him to stop. Francis denied any wrongdoing, but said through a representative that he had had consensual sex with Szyszka.

In August, Szyszka reported the incident to the police. Lt. Michael Castellan, head of investigations for the Melrose Park Police Department, said the investigation was ongoing.

Anybody know what's up with the investigation?

  • House rules. Don't post under "anonymous"; use a pseudonym.

    I assume if Francis did rape one of the performers he instructed the crew to stop taping or destroyed the tape.

  • She got raped in June, reported it in August; no offense to this "lady", but why did she waited so long? Also, why did she put herself at harms way? She knew she would be infront of a camera, and she knew what she needed to do in order to be on t.v.; now, she cries rape.

    No wonder people sometimes do not believe the victims!

    If this particular lady was in an event that is called "Girls Gone Wild", what is she expected to do?: GO WILD!

    I do not condemn rape under any circumstances, but than woman should not put themselves in harms way. I am not saying she asked for it, because no ony deserves to be hurt in any way, shape or form, but than again, if she knew the rules of the game, and than decided not to play it, you just can't say: I was raped when it pleases yourself.

    I am a woman, and I know what kind of places I will go to in order to have fun; none of which have anything with t.v. cameras or "Wild" as a title.

    In this time and age, people are so hungry for fame and fortune, that they will stop at nothing to get it.

    Like I said, if she got raped, I hope he gets send behing bars, and for her, I hope she starts choosing a different setting in which to have fun, and decides to seek out some kind of mental and emotional help.

  • I do not condemn rape under any circumstances...

    I think the word you're looking for is "condone".

    But if she offered to show her tits or her coochy to the camera, did she have a right to say "no" to Francis?

  • From what I see in the picture she seems to have wanted it.

    I don't know just my opinion.

    But she's pretty hot and I think she knows it.

    I'll bet she did'nt get the amout of money she was hoping for.

  • Thanks for the correction...that is the work I was looking for.

    Showing her "tits or coochy" as you call them to a camera, does not give anyone the authority to touch or molest anyone else. Is it appropriate to tease someone? No, but now a days, that is society.
