Brit Jon Walters and American fiancée Rachel Bear first caught the eye of TLC viewers when they made their debut in the second season of “90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days” back in 2018; they tied the knot that same year. As viewers witnessed, his journey to come to America was complicated by the criminal record that followed him from Great Britain.
Those criminal charges, he explained on the show, were all assault charges from his younger days, when he tended to get into a lot of fights. “When I was young, I grew up in not a great area, having to choose between being stamped on or fighting to get away,” he explained, as reported by InTouch. One of those fights, he revealed, took place while he was attending university, when he wound up getting into it with a group of guys who were trash-talking him and his friends. “I got really mad and they tried grabbing me, and by the end of it, they all got punched,” Walters recalled. He was ultimately convicted of bodily harm without intent.
While he didn’t wind up doing any time, the conviction did result in him getting kicked out of school. According to Walters, he’s learned his lesson and has continually insisted that the violent brawler of his youth is no longer who he is now that he’s older, wiser and, presumably, a lot more calm.
