GEOFFREY Paschel’s mugshot was revealed after he was found guilty of “kidnapping & beating” his ex-fiancée Kristen Wilson.
The 90 Day Fiancé star testified in his own defense at his assault trial on Thursday for a domestic dispute.
Geoffrey’s mugshot has been released after he was found guilty of domestic abuse towards his ex Kristen.
The reality star looked miserable in the image shared by Julie Grant, host of Court TV.
The journalist confirmed his sentence in the caption of her post which read: “BOOKED! Former @TLC#90DayFiance star Geoffrey Paschel will stay in jail until he learns his sentence for the brutal beating of his ex-fiancée.”
Geoffrey was found guilty of aggravated kidnapping, domestic violence, and interference with an emergency call during the Thursday hearing.
Prior to the trial, the actor alleged that he was “100% categorically innocent.”
“These claims are the main reason I’ve been lambasted with such vitriol. I can assure you, if any of these fables were true, I would bow out and accept responsibility. Not all is as it seems,” he asserted.
The ex-couple began dating in 2017, and split just a year later, though their altercation didn’t occur until June of 2019.
In an affidavit obtained by CourtTV, Kristen alleged that he “grabbed her by the neck and slammed her head against a wall” after the two began arguing.
The 30-year-old claimed that he “repeatedly bashed/slammed my head into the hardwood floors of my home.
“He dragged me through the house by my hair and continued throwing my body into walls and furniture. I know this because of blood on my walls, furniture, etc.”
After running to a neighbor’s home, she was able to call the police, where she revealed the details of the “assault.”
Upon their arrival officers noticed “bruises” and “abrasions” on Kristen’s body, but Geoffrey claimed they were “self-inflicted.”
The former TV personality was taken into custody by the Knox County Sheriff where he will remain until his sentencing hearing that will take place on December 3, 2021.
TELL ALL OR NOTHING
Geoffrey’s assault allegations emerged just four days before his season of 90 Day Fiance aired, and although his episodes were still televised he did not appear on the tell-all special.
In June of 2020, the TV star spoke out about missing the special during an
Instagram live session.
He claimed: “I’m not sad that I wasn’t on it.
“The mentality of keeping me off the tell-all because somebody said something is the most absurd thing I’ve ever heard in my life.
“I want my court case to be over with, and as soon as my court case is over with, then my life will proceed.”
According to a 90 Day Fiancé press release, the TLC star had a difficult several years leading up to his time on the show.
“Shortly after his second marriage ended in divorce, he suffered the tragic loss of his son,” the PR explained.
During his season, Geoffrey was considering proposing to a Russian woman that he met on an international dating site.
He previously served time in jail in the late 1990s after he was arrested for possession of a schedule VI controlled substance, possession of a schedule I controlled substance, and possession of a schedule II controlled substance with intent to resell.
Paschel pleaded guilty to that charge tand was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail according to In Touch Weekly.
