At 19 years of age, Joe was hit with a sobering 35-72 year sentence. He is currently serving his 34th year, with his first chance to be seen by the Parole Board in 2021.
Joe participates and often leads the Native American circle at his prison, which includes the sweat lodge and pipe ceremonies, dedicating his life to the “Red Road.”
After years as a carpenter and making license plates, he was happy to be part of the Canine Behavior Modification program.
