Joe Exotic of Tiger King fame is about to receive a new prison sentence for his role in an attempted murder despite his original conviction remaining.
In 2020 the wildlife park owner and reality star, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado Passage, was sentenced to 22 years in prison for two separate assassinations after allegedly attempting to hire two contract killers to try to kill rivals Carole Baskin, and for other wildlife injuries. At a hearing on Wednesday, July 14, the Denver 10th District Court of Appeals overturned its existing sentence.
The federal appeals ruled that a court should impose a new individual sentence on Joe, 58, on both counts of murder for rent, saying they should originally have been grouped together as one conviction, not two, as suggested by E. . emerges! News.
“I’ve got the best news in a long time,” said Joe, 58, on a phone call with one of his lawyers, as seen on a YouTube video from the law firm Phillips & Hunt.
