A Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday there is enough evidence to put a man on trial for allegedly robbing "Girls Gone Wild" creator Joe Francis and forcing him to partially disrobe and pose for a demeaning videotape.
Francis, creator of the video business that features young women baring their breasts, testified during the pretrial hearing that he was "scared to death" in January 2004 when a gun-wielding man broke into his Bel-Air mansion.
Francis testified Monday that Riley broke into his home, pulled a gun on him and videotaped him, on his bed with his pants down, making sexually humiliating comments about himself. He then threatened to distribute the video unless Francis paid him $300,000 to $500,000, Francis said.
Police learned of the alleged crime from socialite Paris Hilton, Francis' former girlfriend, who said she heard the incident discussed at a party.
Now that's karma.
