Things are not looking good for Jorge Nava. The 90 Day Fiancé star was arrested for allegedly trying to sell nearly 300 pounds of marijuana in Arizona in February, and now he’s reportedly plead guilty to the crime on July 17, according to Starcasm!
Jorge, who married Russian beauty Anfisa Arkhipchenko on the TLC show, was originally facing up to 12 years behind bars, but it sounds like he got a great plea deal. After fessing up to the Class 4 felony of Attempted Transportation of Marijuana for Sale, Jorge may only get a couple of years of probation. That’s incredibly lucky considering the fact that the amount of weed he was caught with should have made it a Class 2 felony, which is more serious, and would include jail time. It’s unclear if he gave up any information to get the amazing plea deal.
It all started on Feb. 7, when TMZ reported that Jorge was pulled over for a traffic violation in Arizona. That’s when police searched his vehicle and discovered the 293 pounds of weed in the car. Cops handcuffed the reality star and charged him with possession of marijuana for sale and transportation of marijuana for sale. He spent two nights in jail before posting $25,000 bail.
Fans of the show will remember that Jorge was pressured to give his new bride a certain lifestyle that he couldn’t seem to afford, and speculated that that was why he did it. Among the things Anfisa requested from Jorge were designer shoes, a car, and a $10,000 monthly allowance. NBD. “When Jorge asked me to come to the states, he promised to get me whatever I want,” Anfisa said on the show. “Now that I’m here, he keeps telling me he can’t afford everything and there are things that are more important.”
Luckily, she seems to be supportive of her husband despite his legal issues. Just days earlier when a fan asked if she planned to start a family with him soon, she said “We are husband and wife. That is a family.” Plus, his arrest isn’t even the biggest hurdle their relationship has right now. Jorge’s ex also claimed that her 10-year-old daughter was actually his child. It’s unclear whether Anfisa was with him when he plead guilty in the Mohave County Superior Court, but we’ll see how strong their relationship is when he’s sentenced on Sept. 7.
