We will have plenty of guests on the shows. Jesse recently spoke to Kristin, one of the jurors who convicted Joseph Maldonado-Passage (aka Joe Exotic) in a wild murder-for-hire and animal abuse case. She criticized Tiger King, the Netflix docuseries about the defendant, saying that it wasn’t “even close to what we saw in court.”
“I think that the docuseries did a big disservice to the way that criminal justice is supposed to be carried out,” she said. “It makes the jury look like we were incompetent and that we convicted him on basically nothing when it wasn’t like that at all. I really wished that they would’ve been more fair with what they showed, but it is what it is, and all we can do is hope people understand that that’s not exactly the way a trial is.”
