He is serving a 22-year sentence on several charges, including hiring hitmen to kill Big Cat Rescue owner Carole Baskin. A federal appeals court, however, vacated his sentence in July and is requiring a trial court to dole out a new sentence that groups some of his alleged crimes together.
Earlier this month, Joe posted a letter stating, “My prostate biopsy came back with an aggressive cancer.” He insisted, “Right now I don’t want anyone’s pity and I’m sure Carole Will have her own party over this! What I need is the world to be my voice to be released, they have the proof I DID NOT DO THIS!”
Exotic said he wanted to “go home and get treatment on my own or enjoy what life I have left with my loved ones!”
“Extra’s” Billy Bush spoke with Carole this week and asked, “Do you think he should be out? Do you have sympathy for Joe?”
Carole answered, “Anyone who has cancer, I would wish them a speedy recovery. But Joe is exactly where he belongs. The world is not safe with him on the streets.”
