Bobbitt: Female Trouble

11/05/1998 at 12:00 AM EST

John Wayne Bobbitt, who rose to fame in 1993 when his wife hacked off his manhood, was found guilty of harassment this week, following a Nov. 2 altercation with a former girlfriend, adult film star Desiree Luz. Bobbitt, 32, was jailed 17 days before posting the $50,000 bond. The court also ordered him to cease and desist communicating with Luz. Outside the Justice Building in North Tonawanda, N.Y., Bobbitt told reporters, "I wasn't prepared for the defense, and I was innocent." Since his infamous incident with his ex-wife Lorena, Bobbitt made a number of adult films and worked in a Nevada brothel. Since coming East, he's been a bartender and tow truck operator.
