Joe’s attorney tells us he met John in February 2021 when they were both locked up at FMC Forth Worth in Texas … and even though John’s since been released from custody, it seems he’s had a lasting impact on Joe.
According to court docs, obtained by TMZ, John was in prison for burglary and possession of a firearm. He was sentenced in 2012 to more than 12 years in prison, although prison records show he was released March 15 of this year.
