Tiger King was the number one rated show on Netflix drawing over 34 million viewers in its first 10 days.  However, the documentary reveals only part of the story.  In this interactive presentation attendees will learn the complete story of the trial of Joseph Maldonado-Passage (aka Joe Exotic) for two counts of Murder for Hire and several wildlife offences.  Following a brief overview of the facts and key players, we will examine the investigation into multiple animal cruelty and other offences, and subsequent trial and sentencing under intense media spotlight. We will cover topics such as the intersection of animal cruelty and other offences, multi-agency investigations, the use of expert witnesses pertaining to the animal offences, charging strategies, trial tactics, and ethics and professionalism for crown attorneys.
