Joe Francis, known as the creator of the Girls Gone Wild video series, could be sentenced to jail for up to five years after her was convicted of assault Monday.

A Los Angeles court found him guilty on five charges, including assault, for attacking a woman who was in his Hollywood home back in 2011.

According to TMZ, Francis was also convicted for false imprisonment and dissuading a witness from reporting a crime. Three women had accused him of not allowing them to leave his home after a night out, and assaulted one of them by slamming her to the floor.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for this week, where Francis will learn how much of the possible 5 year sentence he will have to serve in jail.
