90 Day Fiance Star Sentenced To 2.5 Years In Prison

KINGMAN—A reality star was sentenced to nearly three years in an Arizona State Prison Friday morning on the charge attempting to transport 286 pounds of marijuana across states lines.

Jorge Nava sat quietly next to his attorney Brad Rideout as Mohave County Superior Court Judge Billy Sipe handed down his sentence.

Rideout asked Sipe to consider Nava’s “young age” and “job in the television industry” before sentencing. He also asked the court to sentence his client to a year in prison, citing the fine of $20,000 his client is now obligated to pay.

The fine issued by the court is $10,928.96 with an additional 83 percent surcharge which equals out to the $20,000. Nava will also be ordered to serve four months community supervision following his release from prison.

Hideout said Nava was remorseful of the arrest and he reportedly conducted two interviews with southern-based television stations in an attempt to show his side.

But, that didn’t sway Sipe from sentencing Nava to the full two-and-a-half years to state prison.

Sipe mentioned Nava had three previous felonies from California that involved for marijuana between 2012 and 2015.

Nava was pulled over in February on Interstate 40 near Kingman by Arizona Department of Public Safety. During a reported search of Nava’s rental vehicle, troopers uncovered nearly 300 pounds of bundled marijuana in the trunk of the vehicle.

He was arrested and booked into the Mohave County jail. Nava later posted bail following his arraignment.

In August, Nava agreed to plead guilty to one count of attempted transportation of marijuana for sale, a class four felony.

He will begin his sentencing Friday and will be reprimanded into the custody of the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office for processing.

A video posted to Nava and his wife, Anifsa’s, channel showed the two discussing the upcoming sentencing. Nava went on to say he had “illegal stuff in his car” and that he was “racially profiled” by the DPS trooper that February night.

Watch the full interview:

Nava’s wife was not in attendance for her husband’s sentencing. He must serve at least 22-months of his full sentence to be eligible to be released from prison.

Both made their fame on TLC’s 90-Day Fiancé.

    How can you sit there the and actually think that you did nothing wrong !?
    Just like you lied to your wife all the time on the show you are sitting there trying to lie to the public. You two were one of my favorite couples on the show but you have now lost all my respect for you. Had you owned up to your wrong doing you would still have my respect.

    Racially profiled my ass. They actually like and want us to think that was the reason they pulled him over and that they are just really that good at having a sixth sense about vehicles that are used for trafficking when the truth is that they are breaking their own laws in order to arrest others for breaking the law. It’s a racket and they are making a killing by using an electric sensor (can’t think of correct term for it) that allows them to ILLEGALLY detect the weed in vehicles. Trust Me I’m not talking out of my ass. I know what I’m talking about.

    Wait a minute Jorge. You said police should be out there trying to protect the community. That’s exactly what they did when they found “illegal stuff” in your car. Apparently your intentions were to sell the marijuana, did you consider the number of minors who would be affected by your actions or did you even care? Your only concern was getting paid? I don’t believe the police just randomly pulled you over and searched your car. Isn’t it true they have to show cause before conducting a search.
