“Tiger King” Joe Exotic is re-sentenced to 21 years in prison in a murder-for-hire case involving his main rival.

&Quot;Tiger King&Quot; Joe Exotic Is Re-Sentenced To 21 Years In Prison In A Murder-For-Hire Case Involving His Main Rival.

OKLAHOMA CITY — A federal judge on Friday re-sentenced “Tiger King” Joe Exotic to 21 years in prison, reducing his sentence by just a year, despite pleas for leniency from a former zookeeper as he begins treatment for cancer.

“Please don’t make me die in jail while waiting for a chance at freedom,” he told the federal judge who resentenced him on a murder-for-hire charge.

Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado-Passage, was convicted in a case involving animal rights activist Carole Baskin. Both were featured in the Netflix series Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness.

In his orange prison overalls, Maldonado-Passage still sported his signature mullet hairdo, but the bleached blond faded to grey.

Baskin and her husband also attended the hearing, and she said she feared that Maldonado-Passage might threaten her.

“He still has a strong dislike for me,” she said.

Friday’s trial comes after a federal appeals court ruled last year that the prison sentence he is serving on a murder-for-hire charge should be reduced.

Supporters filled the courtroom, some wearing animal masks and “Free Joe Exotic” shirts. His lawyers have said they are appealing both the retrial and the motion for a new trial.
