90 Day Fiance: Geoffrey Paschel Will Continue His 18 Year Prison Sentence! Appeal Denied
Earlier, he was a 90 Day Fiance star, but now Geoffrey Paschel is a convicted criminal. Last year, the court found him guilty of aggravated assault and kidnapping of one of his exes. After a long trial in court, they found him guilty. Later, his team of lawyers filed for an appeal for an early release.
In their oral arguments, they emphasized that the court sentenced Geoffrey to prison with insufficient evidence during the trial. The attorneys mentioned that there was “improperly admitted evidence,” “too much emphasis on Geoffey’s ex-testimony,” and the “cumulative impact of errors.”
But, after the appeal, the court finally gave their statement. As per Starcasm, they concluded by saying the evidence during the trial was “sufficient” for Geoffrey’s conviction. Moreover, there was discretion in the trial court when it denied both the defendant’s mistrial motion.
As a result, there is now no scope for Geoffrey Paschel to get an early release. Hence, he will continue to serve his prison sentence of 18 years with no parole. The 90 Day Fiance star is doing time in Knox County Jail in Knoxville, Tennessee.
