Joe Francis Caught With Drugs In Jail, Associate Arrested As Well

Joe Francis thought it would be a good idea to have his “Girls Gone Wild” associate Scott Barbour bring him prescription drugs while he has to stay in jail for contempt of court charges. Joe was caught with 16 pills including the antianxiety meds Aprazolam and Lorazepam along with the sleeping medication Lunesta after he tried bribe a correctional officer $100 to sneak him a bottle of water. When the officer refused, Joe upped it to $500 and then they searched his cell. Yes, the man is that stupid. Now Barbour has been arrested for bringing Francis the pills and is being held in the same jail:

Francis offered a jail guard $100 for a bottled water Wednesday evening, court records said. When the guard refused, Francis showed him $500, investigators said. Inmates are not allowed to have cash in the jail.
When supervisors searched Francis’ cell, they found 16 prescription pills, including the sleeping medication Lunesta and the anti-anxiety pill lorazepam, according to court records.
The president of Mantra Films Inc., which produces the “Girls Gone Wild” videos, was arrested Thursday for supplying Francis with the pills and cash, Bay County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Ruth Sasser said. Scott Barbour was charged with introduction of contraband into a detention facility. He was scheduled to have a first appearance Friday.


I know someone who works as a correctional officer at a correctional centre (yeah, that’s right–it’s good to have a cop to scare off crap boyfriends), and I asked him purely in the name of research how common it is for someone to do this and get away with it. He told me that if they like the inmate enough, some officers usually let some shit slide, but if they can’t stand the guy then the officers would do anything in their power to make their life a living hell while they stayed there. He also said he was surprised that he had to have someone from the outside to bring him drugs, as there are more than enough in abundance in jail and if you did “favors” for the right people you should be able to score enough happy pills to keep you going.

So the morale of the story is this: If you are pretty, nice enough to the officers, and generally discreet, serving time in jail will be a breeze. If you are an ugly prick with re-worked teeth who’s too ignorant to realise that regular old tap water is not going to kill you and that bribing a police officer with $100 for Evian is going to get your ass caught if you are trying to a hide medicine cabinet underneath your smelly prison mattress, then expect to stay a hell of a lot longer in jail.
