Franco has also admitted to trying to do this before.
According to the Department of Justice, he admitted that his past attempts had resulted in the deaths of the animals. For exactly what reason Franco was so intent on bringing scary, vicious, venomous snakes into the country is anybody's guess.
We doubt it was to take baths with them, but who are we to judge?
Franco faces up to 20 years in prison if he is found guilty at trial.
Presumably, this will stop his attempts to smuggle the animals into the country.
