“90 Day Fiance” Star Jorge Nava Sentenced to Over Two Years in Prison For Felony Marijuana Arrest: Find Out How He & Wife Anfisa Reacted to the Sentence

“What am I going to do without Jorge’s wallet…I mean Jorge?”

90 Day Fiance star Jorge Nava is not going to be living “Happily Ever After” with his wife Anfisa— at least not for the next two-and-a-half years!

Jorge and Anfisa are in shock after an Arizona judge sentenced Jorge to two-and-half years in prison in regard to charges he incurred after being arrested in Arizona in February on multiple felony marijuana possession and distribution charges. (On the day of his arrest, police found nearly 300 pounds of marijuana in his car!)

Back in July, Jorge plead guilty to a felony count of “Attempted Transportation of Marijuana for Sale.” That plea deal helped snag Jorge a much smaller sentence than he was originally facing.

“When I first started, with the charges against me, I was looking at like 24 years or something like that, some ridiculous number,” Jorge said in an interview with TMZ. “But luckily my lawyer was able to work out a plea agreement…I ended up pleading to a Class 4 felony in Arizona.”

Jorge’s wife Anfisa, who has been keeping fans posted on Jorge’s legal battle via her YouTube channel, took to YouTube the day before Jorge’s sentencing to explain what happened on the day of Jorge’s arrest, and why he decided to plead guilty.

Jorge, who also appeared in the video entitled “My Husband Is Going To Jail (Can’t Believe How Much Time He Got),” said he pled guilty to the lesser Class 4 felony, knowing that it would mean he would receive up to two-and-a-half years in prison for his crimes. This was better than taking his chances at a trial, where he could have received up to 24 years in prison, he said.

“See? I’m tough! I’ll be just fine in prison…. stop laughing Anfisa!”

In the YouTube video, Jorge explained that, although he was indeed guilty of carrying “a ton of illegal things” in his car, he felt he was profiled by the police officer who pulled him over.

Although Jorge enlisted the help of a lawyer to try to get his case dropped (due to the alleged “profiling”), Jorge was unsuccessful. The fact that he already had a criminal record at the time of his arrest certainly didn’t help.

“[My lawyer] told me if I didn’t have an priors, I would have probably got probation,” Jorge said. “I would have been a first-time offender in Arizona. But, I had two previous convictions for cultivation of marijuana. Just to set that straight; that’s my criminal record. I’ve never done anything else. I’ve never even had a DUI.”

According to Arizona media outlet The Bee, during sentencing, Jorge’s attorney asked Judge Billy Sipe to consider Jorge’s “young age” and “job in the television industry” before sentencing. He also asked the judge to give Jorge the minimum sentence— one year in prison.

Despite Jorge’s attorney’s pleas for leniency, the judge handed down the maximum sentence allowed within Jorge’s plea deal: two-and-a-half years.

In addition to his prison sentence, Jorge is also required to pay a $20,000 fine, and was ordered to do four months of supervised probation after he gets released from prison.

“I still feel like it’s not fair, but I didn’t want to risk going to prison for a long time,” Jorge said on the YouTube video. “Two-and-a-half years is still a long time, but I feel like it’s not forever.”

In his interview with TMZ, Jorge again discussed how unfair his sentence was.

“I feel like it’s really harsh of a penalty for the crime, just because it’s marijuana-related and right now it’s going legal in a lot of states,” Jorge said. “It’s actually medically legal in Arizona. I just feel like going to prison over the same stuff that’s legal is kind of crazy to me.”

Like the judge who handed down Jorge’s sentence, fans of the show who viewed the couple’s YouTube video seemed to have very little sympathy for Jorge.

“I can’t believe that someone who went on national TV and made it public knowledge that they sell drugs for a living is surprised they got pulled over…” one person wrote in the comment section of the video. “You honestly think that nobody in law enforcement has possibly seen the show and knows what you do and was looking for the opportunity to bust you?”

“Jorge, you were not profiled,” another person wrote. “You did something illegal and got caught… Don’t use the profiling epidemic as an excuse. You do not get the right. You did the crime, pay the time.”

“Please pray that TLC will be allowed to bring their cameras into the clink!”

Fans watched Jorge and Anfisa’s drama (and near-divorce) play out on multiple seasons of “90 Day Fiance,” and some expressed in the YouTube video comments that they felt Anfisa would ditch Jorge once he’s behind bars.

“It’s party time for Anfisa now! Bye Jorge,” someone wrote. “Your girl won’t feel the same after you get out bud, that’s if she is even around still.”

While talking to TMZ, though, Jorge stated that he was confident that Anfisa would stay by his side.

“There’s really nothing wrong in our relationship right now,” Jorge said. “We’ve been really good these last couple months. She’s been here supporting me through this whole journey and she’s going to be with me throughout this whole process and after that too. I don’t really see us splitting up.”

  1. Jorge I’m so sorry you got 2 1/2 years Dude,tht witch your married to should be standing by her man…maybe she needs to burn a fatty and she would chill out..I hope your sisters don’t help her out since she was so nasty to them.leave her ass smoking on the streets …she’s a nasty Bitch! I hope you get out of it Dude.I’m with you 10p percent. Good luck Jorge…

  2. Gorge, you already got leniency by pleading down from 24 years! If TLC chooses to not film “Anfisa’s Journey” and there’s no more checks or attention, file their story under “Happily Never After!”

  3. Kinda legal doesn’t mean it is legal. And pot is still a federal no no drug. You would think a dealer would know the laws & where it’s “easier” to transport… and this is all coming from someone who doesn’t smoke pot.

  4. Sorry Jorge: you honestly think she’s going to be faithfully waiting? Wake up and smell the coffee. ” It’s Party Time” she’s been using you from day one. I can’t believe you agreed to go on national TV to be made an ass out of. Good luck you are gonna need it

  5. Married??? Neither one of em has a weeding ring on. 300 lbs. of marijuana and you actually think you would get no time.

    1. I’m guessing Anfisa is having a hard time finding a guy with money. No doubt she will have moved on by the time he gets out of the slammer.

    1. I agree. We see malicious acts of child abuse all time. They usually get probation. There was a little girl found in an attic here. She had trauma to her skull after being hit with a brick. Was starved and they wiped feces on her. The cops had recordings of them plotting how to torture her. They plead guilty and received probation…unreal.

    2. Where I’m from, a 22 year old woman just killed a five year old and her grandmother while they were taking a walk. She was drunk driving and jumped the curb. She had been arrested constantly for DUI, even before she turned 21. Never got prison time or actual punishment. Now two innocent people are dead. And he gets two years for pot. It’s absolute hypocrisy.

  6. In all reality what did he expect? Come on!300 lbs of marijuana!!! Is he really that stupid to expect lienancy from the judge? I’d bet my last dollar that Anfisa gave the cops a heads up.
