“Girls Gone Wild” founder Joe Francis has been sentenced to serve at least 270 days behind bars for attacking a woman at his Hollywood mansion back in 2011.

The mogul has also been sentenced to 36 months probation and must complete an anger management course and one year of psychological counseling, TMZ reported.

Three women have accused Francis of taking them to his home and refusing to let them leave. He reportedly choked one of the women and slammed her head into his tile floor, TMZ said.

He was convicted on five charges, including assault, three counts of false imprisonment and one count of dissuading a witness from reporting.
