Joe Exotic controversy and jail time
Joe Exotic, whose real name is Joseph Maldonado, is serving a 21-year prison sentence for trying to hire two different men to kill animal welfare activist Carol Baskin. He was initially sentenced to 22 years, but later it was reduced by just a year after a federal appeals court ruled that improper sentencing guidelines were being used, as per a report of Page Six.
Joe had also submitted multiple pleas for leniency as he is suffering for early-stage cancer. He reportedly began his treatment in prison and even shaved his head. As per Page Six, he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He had said via a letter from jail that his doctor feared cancer had spread to his bladder.
