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.
