News 9 - December 27, 2022 7:57 am

Oklahoma’s infamous “Tiger King,” Joseph Maldonado-Passage, known as Joe Exotic, lost an appeal to take eight years off his 21-year prison sentence.

Joe Exotic was convicted of trying to have a rival zookeeper killed not once, but twice.

He argued both instances should have been grouped together under sentencing guidelines rather than as two separate counts.

However, a judge shot his most recent argument down on Dec. 23.
