The former ’90 Day Fiancé’ star is guilty on all three counts

For two days, CourtTV aired the former 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star’s trial. Geoffrey was accused of severely beating his ex-fiancée, Kristen Wilson, then keeping her trapped in her bedroom. The court saw graphic photos taken of Ms. Wilson’s face the night of June 9th, 2019. The attack left her with two black eyes and a large knot on her forehead, which caused swelling and distorted face that she looked unrecognizable.

Geoffrey then kept Ms. Wilson trapped inside her bedroom, where he used the threat of violence to keep her there. He took her phone and wouldn’t let her call for help. After he fell asleep, she ran barefoot to a neighbor’s home to call for help. On October 7th, 2021, day two of Geoffrey’s trial, the prosecution and the defense made their closing arguments. After only an hour and 45 mins of deliberation, the jury came back with their decision. The jury found Geoffrey guilty on all three counts. The charges include aggravated kidnapping, domestic violence, and interference of an emergency call.

Geoffrey takes off his wedding band

After reading the verdict, the former 90 Day Fiancé star removed a wedding band from his left ring finger and set it on the table. After that, he handed it to his lawyer, who passed the ring and suit jacket to his friend and ex-fiancée, Mary Wallace. The CourtTV video below shows the former 90 Day Fiancé cast member removing what appears to be a wedding ring.

Mary was wiping her tears as they handcuffed him and ushered him out of the courtroom. Geoffrey will wait in the Knox County Jail until his sentencing hearing on December 3rd. He is now facing anywhere from eight to 30 years behind bars.

Could Geoffrey be married to Varya?

So who is Geoffrey married to? At the end of 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days Season 4, Geoffrey and Varya were engaged. However, due to his domestic violence case, he was removed from the season just ahead of the Tell-All episode. Meaning, there has been no update from the couple since then.

Some 90 Day Fiancé fans have pointed out that Varya never left America after her surprise visit to Tennesee. A fan pointed out that Varya posted a photo to her Instagram in Geoffrey’s kitchen just a few months back. Then, Varya posted a candy shop on her Instagram and wrote about “falling in love” with America. Also, a fan spotted Varya at a DMV in Florida, where she was taking her driver’s license test.

According to ScreenRant, the 90 Day Fiancé gossip account, @90daythemelanatedway, shared photos of Varya and Geoffrey sent in by a follower. Fans spotted the former 90 Day Fiancé stars at the Southern Tequila and Taco Festival in Knoxville, Tennessee. The two seemed to be cozying up to each other in some of the photos.

Could Geoffrey and Mary actually be married? The formerly engaged couple has a history that played out on the show just before Geoffrey proposed to Varya for the second time. While Varya was not present at the courthouse during Geoffrey’s trial, Mary was there. However, Varya did delete her Instagram on October 7th after Geoffrey was guilty of domestic violence. Is that her way of standing by her man? 90 Day Fiancé fans will have to wait and see if there is any new information.
