Former 90 Day Fiance star Geoffrey Paschel’s day in court has finally arrived and the verdict is GUILTY. While appearing on the spin-off, 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, it came out Paschel had an interesting past. He was accused of a plethora of wrongdoings, leading viewers and fans to demand he be fired from the show. TLC opted to leave him out of any tell-alls or reunions. Paschel told fans he would do his own tell-all when the time was right. Now, it looks like everyone may be waiting a long time.
Who Is The 90 Day Fiance Star?
Shortly before Geoffrey made a name for himself on reality television, he had gotten into a little bit of trouble. An ex-girlfriend accused him of physical assault in June of 2019 according to The Sun. She said he “grabbed her by the neck and slammed her head against a wall several times” prior to throwing her on the ground. Paschel was allegedly drunk at the time.
Additionally, he was later charged with kidnapping, domestic assault, interference with an emergency call, and vandalism. The trial was postponed a few times and COVID just added to the postponements. Whilst all this was going on, Geoffrey met Varya Malina from Russia. They began a long-distance relationship which landed them on Season 4 of Before the 90 Days. He knew he had to confess his background to her.
Aside from what had happened in 2019, Paschel had spent almost a year behind bars in the latter 1990s. His crime? Possession of a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance with the intent to resell. This did not scare Varya away as they ultimately got engaged at the end of their season. They did break up when she felt he was rushing things. He returned to Tennessee and started dating his best friend, Mary but Varya followed him home and he had to choose. So, now what?
What’s Next For Geoffrey?
The trial of Geoffrey Paschel started on October 6th and was televised on CourtTV. Three witnesses testified, one being his ex. Geoffrey did not want to begin the trial without saying his piece so he spoke out on his Instagram. He wanted everyone to know nothing is as it appears. If it were, he would have already accepted full responsibility for such actions.
Best friend, Mary was in the courtroom as the verdict was read and looked as shocked as she could be. Geoffrey’s face was covered by a mask so it was hard to gauge how he was handling it. The jury found him guilty of aggravated kidnapping. Secondly, they found him guilty of domestic violence. Finally, the jury found him guilty of interfering with an emergency call.
Paschel will now face up to thirty years in prison. He has four sons, one who has passed and will be a grandpa come next year. Geoffrey will next appear in court in December where he will be sentenced.
