Jon Walters ends friendship with Geoffrey Paschel amid guilty verdict
The 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days star wrote a lengthy message on Instagram after several days of being off the social media platform.
On September 21, Jon posted a message informing his followers that he would be taking a social media break, but it seems he made a return just to clear up his stance on the Geoffrey Paschel court ruling.
“My relationship and friendship with Geoffrey ended today along with his presumption of innocence,” wrote Jon. “Geoffrey and I have spoken many times about my absolute and unwavering disgust of abuse and violence against those we are meant to protect.”
“I gave Geoffrey the presumption of innocence and I never asked him for his side of the story as [I] never wanted my opinion of the case to be tainted by wanting to believe a friend,” Jon revealed.
Geoffrey Paschel knew the friendship would end if he was found guilty
The 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days star continued to explain his decision to end his friendship with Geoffrey Paschel.
He revealed that during their previous conversations, he made it clear that if Geoffrey was found guilty, that would be the end of their friendship. And now that the verdict has been rendered Jon is remaining true to his word.
“While I found Geoffrey to be a kind and decent man- many abusive sociopaths and domestic abusers actions are usually when there are no other witnesses and appear nice to others,” remarked Jon. “I have said nothing in defense of Geoffrey or about the then allegations against him.”
Jon later noted, “Geoffrey knew my friendship with him would end with him being found guilty. And this is today.”
Before ending his post, the TLC star added, “…The justice system isn’t perfect but it’s [the] only one we have and I hope it got it right this time…I will not be mentioning Geoffrey again, don’t DM or ask my opinion about my friend because he’s not a friend anymore.”
Sentencing for the Geoffrey Paschel trial will be conducted on December 3rd.
