90 Day Fiance alum Geoffrey Paschel received an 18-year prison sentence without the chance of parole on Thursday in a Knoxville, Tennessee court, in connection with his conviction of aggravated kidnapping, domestic assault and interference with emergency calls.

Paschel, 44, was found guilty of the multiple charges last October in connection with a June 9, 2019 incident with his former fiancée Kristen Wilson, US Weekly reported.

In the incident, Wilson told Knox County Sheriff’s Office deputies that Paschel had attacked her, grabbed her neck and struck her head into a wall multiple times. Wilson told authorities that Paschel had thrown her body on the ground and dragged her on the floor.

Officials observed that Wilson had bruises on her forehead, back, arms and mouth in the wake of the incident, and was subsequently diagnosed with a concussion.

Wilson told authorities that Paschel would not let her have her phone or leave the property in the incident, as she was able to escape when he went to sleep and she went to a neighbor’s house to contact authorities.

In his trial in Knox County Criminal Court last fall, the District Attorney General’s Office told WBIR, Paschel told the court that Wilson had injured herself. The trial was concluded in two days, officials said.

In his sentencing, prosecutors said that Paschel should be deemed a Range-II Offender, based on past drug convictions, and testimony from Wilson and his ex-wife that he was physically abusive with them. Prosecutors also displayed a clip in which Paschel, while in jail, solicited people to bring his kids to Wilson’s home to try to persuade her to ask the court to be lenient on him.

Paschel in 2020 was seen on the fourth season of the program 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days, in which he got engaged to Varya Malina, 33.

Amid his legal issues, he was not invited to appear on the show’s tell-all taping, which he commented on in a June 2020 Instagram Live session.

Paschel said that he was ‘not sad’ to have been excluded from the special.

‘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,’ he said at the time. ‘I want my court case to be over with, and as soon as my court case is over with, then my life will proceed.’

Malina, a native of Russia, was on hand for Paschel’s sentencing on Thursday, US reported.

She has taken to social media multiple times to update people about Paschel, saying in December that he was ‘using this time now to finally slow down and reevaluate what’s important in his life and focus on it.

‘He always sees positive aspects in everything that happens in his life. We are so alike in this exact way.’

When asked why she had not clarified if they were married, she said, she ‘can’t and [has] zero desire to discuss the legal case.’
