Geoffrey Paschel was found guilty of aggravated kidnapping and domestic assault after an alleged altercation with ex, Kristen Wilson.
Judge Kyle Hixson revoked Paschel’s bond and ordered him into immediate custody as he awaits sentencing. The fitness enthusiast is facing between 12 and 20 years in lockup without the possibility of parole.
The Tennessee native appeared on season 4 of TLC spinoff Before the 90 Days in 2020 with two other love interests.
In June 2019, authorities responded to a domestic disturbance where Wilson alleged she had been attacked in her home by Paschel. She claimed he grabbed her by the neck and bashed her head against a wall.
He allegedly stole the victim’s cell phone and barricaded her in the house. She eventually was able to escape to a nearby house after Paschel fell asleep. Police reported bruises on Wilson and she was diagnosed with a concussion.
At the trial, Paschel testified the victim’s injuries were self-inflicted. Wilson took the stand during the trial and emotionally recalled the harrowing ordeal.
“The next thing I remember, he was beating me,” Wilson detailed. “He had me by the back of my head and was hitting my face into the floor and I was screaming for him to stop. From there, he dragged me up the stairs… he was dragging me by my head and by my hair."
Wilson testified she later “blacked out” again. “The next thing I remember, I was in the corner of my kitchen and he was shoving me up against the wall and then he got me back down on the floor in the kitchen,” she heartbreakingly added.
“When I regained consciousness… I was sitting on the couch [in the living room] and my face was dripping blood down my chin and onto my couch and he was pacing, not saying anything, but just pacing behind the other end of my sectional, which had been overturned,” she said.
