Larissa Lima Assault Trial: What's the Verdict?

by at .

Larissa Lima and Colt Johnson both came away with injuries after a scary, bloody fight on January 10 of this year.

Only Larissa was arrested and charged.

On Thursday, May 30, she attended her trial for domestic battery. That court session has now concluded.

As for the verdict ... there's some dispute over that.

Some outlets are reporting that things didn't go too badly for Larissa, but that Thursday's hearing could still put her at risk of deportation.

But we also have Larissa's statement about how the case went, and she is telling a different story. Take a look:

1. Larissa had her day in court

Larissa had her day in court
Things did not entirely go her way, but they could have been way, way worse.

2. On Wednesday, she was asking for good luck

On Wednesday, she was asking for good luck
She knew that, after her third arrest, she would need it. Larissa has a lot of fans who believe in her and want to see her succeed.

3. Colt is smiling

Colt is smiling
That's ... not a great sign for Larissa, considering how the two of them feel about each other.

4. He also waxed philosophical

He also waxed philosophical
"A chapter has ended, swept away by the whirlwind," he writes, doing some sort of grand tour of cliches. "One door has closed but another has opened..."

5. But that's nothing compared to how his mom is feeling

But that's nothing compared to how his mom is feeling
Is ... is Debbie trying to DAB? We've seen a lot of behavior from 90 Day Fiance stars, but this right here may be the most shocking.

6. There's no love lost here

There's no love lost here
Debbie is NOT a fan of Larissa, and may despise her more than Colt does. We're sure that everyone on the planet has already made this joke, but we're sure that they're home celebrating with a grossly undercooked steak as we speak.

7. Keep in mind that Colt can't say much

Keep in mind that Colt can't say much
His divorce agreement (shown here in a screenshot disclosed by John Yates earlier this year) includes a stipulation that neither he nor Larissa disparage each other. He can vague post all that he likes, but that's it.

8. We've already seen one of the court documents

We've already seen one of the court documents
We know that this is a lot, so we'll break it all down.

9. First, the important bits

First, the important bits
As 90 Day Fiance blogger extraordinaire John Yates correctly sussed from this document, Larissa received a suspended sentence and was ordered to do community service.

10. So how did things go down?

So how did things go down?
Their court appointment was for 8:30am, and while Colt and Debbie arrived about an hour early, Larissa was running a little late.

11. Larissa's team asked for a continuance

Larissa's team asked for a continuance
The judge allowed the court to take a short break while Larissa negotiated for a reduced charge

12. A deal was made

A deal was made
By the terms of the deal, Larissa was charged with disorderly conduct, not with domestic battery.

13. And what does that mean?

And what does that mean?
Basically, she has to pay a fine of $345.

14. There's also an accompanying sentence

There's also an accompanying sentence
After (allegedly) finding her guilty, the judge awarded her a 90 day prison sentence with time served, but suspended the sentence. (Now is not the time to joke, but ... a 90 day sentence for a 90 Day Fiance star ... did the judge do that on purpose? Probably not)

15. Wait, what?

Wait, what?
That means that, so long as Larissa abides by the conditions that the court has set for her, she will not have to spend any time behind bars.

16. So what are the conditions?

So what are the conditions?
As we mentioned, she must also serve community service -- doing a whopping 48 hours of it.

17. She has to stay out of trouble

She has to stay out of trouble
Getting into trouble could land her in hot water. Larissa signed a document with the court acknowledging that she understands the court's instructions.

18. She also has to take domestic violence classes

She also has to take domestic violence classes
The judge instructed her to take 6 months of domestic violence therapy, but it will take the form of weekly classes.

19. She's due back in court

She's due back in court
After some negotiating with Larissa's attorney, the judge agreed that there will be another court date on July 10, and that she must have completed 5 of these domestic violence classes by then. The month of June and the first week of July should give her time for that.

20. So, what now?

So, what now?
It looks like her legal battle is over for the moment ... but even this reduced charge with no jail time could be a huge problem for Larissa.

21. Will she be deported?

Will she be deported?
There are real fears that having been found guilty of even this very minor charge could see her deported to Brazil. She wouldn't even be the first reality star to find herself in this predicament.

22. SOMEONE sure thinks so

SOMEONE sure thinks so
Over Memorial Day weekend, Debbie gleefully predicted that Larissa would be deported after this week's hearing.

23. But Larissa said that that's not true

But Larissa said that that's not true
Now, maybe Larissa was hoping that she would be acquitted (or that the case would be dropped, etc), and perhaps she was even counting on that.

24. It had happened before

It had happened before
Larissa's first arrest, in June of 2018, was followed by Colt dropping the charges. They got married after that. Her second arrest, in November of that year, saw the charge "denied" by the Clark County prosecutor's office.

25. Larissa has been feeling really positive about this

Larissa has been feeling really positive about this
Even this week, she was taking steps to secure her legal residency within the United States.

26. She didn't do it alone

She didn't do it alone
Larissa also made it reasonably clear that she's working with passionate, motivated professionals to remain in the US.

27. She already has relatives here

She already has relatives here
Larissa recently confirmed that she has family members living in Massachussetts.

28. She isn't living with them, of course

She isn't living with them, of course
She is currently residing in Vegas, and has been living with her good friend Carmen since the horrific bloody fight on January 10 that brought her in court on Thursday in the first place.

29. Still, this chapter is closed, and other cliche things that Colt wrote

Still, this chapter is closed, and other cliche things that Colt wrote
With luck, Larissa and Coltee will never have to lay eyes upon each other again. (Notably, they filmed the 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? Season 4 "Tell All" special a few weeks ago)

30. Their divorce was already taken care of

Their divorce was already taken care of
It was long, long overdue. Like Larissa's friends, we cannot help but wonder how different things might be if she had left Colt last autumn, or even during his cheating scandal in December.

31. Larissa has a career

Larissa has a career
She advertises for various companies on Instagram, and she did a LOT of that in the days leading up to her court date

32. She also has a brand new face

She also has a brand new face
On Wednesday, Larissa showed off the results of a series of non-surgical procedures that she had done on her face. If the judge had thrown her in jail, she'd have looked picture-perfect for it.

33. And Larissa has her own words to say

And Larissa has her own words to say
Larissa says that she was not found "guilty," and that she wasn't found "not guilty," either. Contrary to what some outlets are reporting, she says that the judge has not issued a ruling in that regard.

34. That sounds great!

That sounds great!
Does that mean that we CAN expect a ruling on July 10? If so, we recommend that she sign up for those domestic violence classes NOW.

35. She needs to comply with all of the judge's orders

She needs to comply with all of the judge's orders
And we strongly, strongly recommend being on time. No, early. Arrive to court an entire hour early.

36. And, of course, stay out of trouble

And, of course, stay out of trouble
Troublemakers make for amazing reality stars because they are so entertaining. But Larissa should limit her drama to what airs on television and perhaps to some sass on social media.
