Joseph Schreibvogel Maldonado Passage, better known as “Joe Exotic,” was resentenced to twenty-one years in prison, a one-year reduction of his original twenty-two-year sentence for criminal violations of the Lacey Act, the Endangered Species Act, and two counts of murder-for-hire. The resentencing hearing came following a July 14, 2021 order by a panel of 10th Circuit Court of Appeals judges who found that the trial court should have sentenced the defendant’s multiple murder-for-hire convictions concurrently since they constituted one, continuous harm. There is no parole in the federal system, and the federal Sentencing Reform Act requires all federal convicts to serve at least 85% of their sentence.
