The legal team for ‘Joe Exotic’ the main star of the extremely popular Netflix show “Tiger King” has now produced a video directly appealing to President Trump for an official pardon.
Joe is currently serving a prison sentence after being convicted for allegedly attempting to conduct a murder for hire plot targeting his arch-rival Carol Baskin.
As TMZ reports:
Joe Exotic does everything big, and clearly so does his new, massive legal team, that has produced a Texas-style video asking President Trump for a pardon, saying Joe is not only NOT GUILTY of putting a hit out on Carole Baskin, but he was actually FRAMED.
The video was shot and produced in Ft. Worth, and it features the bus TMZ showed you a few days ago that is wrapped in a plea to spring Joe from the prison, where we’re told 1/3 of the inmates now have coronavirus.
The team is led by a super colorful figure — Eric Love, a P.I. who is now the Lead Investigator and Executive Manager for all things Exotic.
The video makes it clear … the legal team will attack on all fronts. They are appealing Joe’s conviction and asking Trump for a pardon. They’re also pursuing a malicious prosecution lawsuit against a bunch of folks involved in the criminal trial.
