After posting a vague letter on the UG in which he claimed that his party lifestyle had led him to “failing as a husband, a father, a dreamer,” Franca pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful penetration and one count of first-degree sexual abuse, and was sentenced to 42 months in prison in January 2012.
