Dildo Dude Guilty!

“Girls Gone Wild Mastectomy Edition” commercial spoof


In a surprise move, Darnell Riley pleaded guilty to the robbery and attempted extortion- by- way- of- a- dildo- and- embarrassing- videotape of Girls Gone Wild goon, Joe Francis. Francis has Paris Hilton to thank for tipping him off to Riley’s identity, and Riley should be thanking God he’s not doing double-life terms in prison on the original kidnapping charges. Young Hollywood can rest easy for the moment, but this continuing investigation will soon reveal the real story on the guy behind the fall-guy behind bars.

FEB. 7, 2006 RILEY PLEADS GUILTY IN EXTORTION CASE LOS ANGELES

A Los Angeles man pleaded guilty today to robbing “Girls Gone Wild” creator Joe Francis in his Bel Air home and forcing him at gunpoint to pose for a video that he then used to try and extort money, the District Attorney’s office announced. Darnell Riley, 28, entered the guilty plea before Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Kellogg. He also admitted the special allegation that he personally used a firearm. Judge Kellogg immediately sentenced Riley to 10 years and eight months in state prison.

The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Hoon Chun from Major Crimes. “The defendant admitted he robbed Joe Francis at gunpoint for the purpose of making a demeaning videotape and used that to try and extort money from him,” Chun said. “Fortunately, nobody was physically harmed. Under the circumstances, the settlement represents a fair resolution of this case.” Chun added the victim is pleased the ordeal is over.

In exchange for the plea, the additional counts of burglary, kidnapping for ransom and carjacking were dismissed. Riley admitted breaking into the victim’s home on Jan. 22, 2004. During the preliminary hearing, Francis testified that Riley first wanted $100,000, then increased his demands to $300,000 and $500,000 and threatened to put the videotape on the Internet if he did not pay. Francis testified he was released after being driven a short distance in his Bentley. Francis also testified that he learned who his assailant was in December 2004 when his ex-girlfriend Paris Hilton pulled him aside at a party and told him what she had learned about the defendant.
