Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis has just been found guilty of assault — and a slew of other charges — after attacking a woman in his Hollywood mansion back in 2011.

The L.A. City Attorney just made the announcement … Francis was convicted on five charges total, including assault, three counts of false imprisonment, and one count of dissuading a witness from reporting.

Francis was charged back in 2011 after three women accused him of taking them to his Hollywood home — following a night out — and refusing to let them leave. He was also accused of attacking one of the women, choke-slamming her head into his tile floor.

Francis faces up to 5 years in jail. A sentencing scheduling hearing is set for this week.
