The 90 day fiance has received 2.5 years for being busted with close to 300 pounds of weed. He’s reportedly very angry and says he believe’s there is a silver lining.
“With the charges against me, I was looking at around 24 years or something like that … some ridiculous number,” the reality star told TMZ in a video clip. “But luckily my lawyer was able to work out a plea agreement and I got the charges dropped and I ended up pleading to a class 4 felony in Arizona.”
The 28 year old Jorge Nava was arrested back in February after he was pulled over for a standard traffic stop in Arizona and the police realized the marijuana was in the back of his trunk.
“I just feel like the fact of it, just going to prison over the same stuff that’s legal, is just kind of crazy to me,” the star stated.
He then opened up about his relationship with his wife Anfisa Arkhipchenko, who he married after meeting her through Facebook. “There’s really nothing wrong in our relationship right now, we’ve been really good these last couple months, I mean, she’s been here supporting me through this whole journey, and she’s gonna be with me throughout this whole process and after that, too. I really don’t see us splitting up!”
Nava also stated that he did not give the officer permission to search his car, but that a police canine alerted the officer to the drugs, at which point he was arrested.
With regard to his plea deal, Nava told followers, “I feel like is still not fair, but I didn’t want to risk going to prison for a long period of time, so I felt like this was the best option.”
