Geoffrey Ian Paschal was accused of assaulting his then-fiancé in 2019
The jury convicted a former “90 Day Fiancé” star of aggravated kidnapping, domestic assault and interference with emergency calls, according to Knox County District Attorney’s Office.
Geoffrey Ian Paschal, 44, was accused of assault by his ex-fiancé. During his two-day trial, Pascal claimed that his former fiancé’s injuries were inflicted by himself. However, a jury “discredited” her testimony and found her “guilty as charged”.
“With October being Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I hope this sentencing shows victims that we will fight for them and hold their abusers accountable,” District Attorney Charme Allen said in a statement. “Victims of domestic abuse can contact the Family Justice Center for Victim Services, and community members can also contact them about how they can help end domestic violence.”
Paschal was ordered into custody and will be sentenced on December 3.
