Joe Exotic from Netflix's "Tiger King" has turned to a federal appeals court to try to get a new trial.

Joseph Maldonado-Passage was sentenced to 22 years in federal prison for a murder-for-hire plot targeting Carole Baskin and on wildlife charges.

He says Baskin shouldn't have been allowed to stay in the courtroom during the trial and that the judge should've handled the murder-for-hire charge differently.

Prosecutors have yet to respond.
