Larissa Lima: Has She Finished Paying Her Debt to Society?

by at .

As we reported last week, Larissa Lima completed her court-ordered domestic violence awareness classes.

But that doesn't mean that the 90 Day Fiance legend is completely out of the woods following her polarizing January arrest.

Has she complied with all of the court's instructions?

And she has another hearing coming up very soon.

Take a look below:

2. For Larissa, her love story is also a horror story

For Larissa, her love story is also a horror story
We all know that her marriage to Colt Johnson was toxic -- that much was apparent on camera. But when cameras were not rolling, things got so much worse. Be warned: some of the following images are graphic and contain blood.

3. January 10, 2019 was a grisly night

January 10, 2019 was a grisly night
Larissa Lima took to social media late that night to inform fans of what had gone down on the final night of her terrible marriage. The sight of her blood-smeared face continues to haunt many fans.

4. It was genuinely upsetting

It was genuinely upsetting
Larissa reported that after hours of "torment" that she received from Colt, she had lashed out, scratching his lip in her attempt to get him to stop. As a result, she said, he had called the police on her. This was not the first time that he had had her arrested, though the incident from November 2018 had stemmed from police being called on Colt (even though Larissa was arrested then, too).

To be clear, inflicting any degree of physical violence upon a partner qualifies as domestic violence. After Colt reportedly claimed to police that his nails were too short to scratch Larissa (a claim questioned by 90 Day Fiance fans, who noted that his nails appeared longer in many photos, too long for him to be a "chronic nail biter"), police arrested Larissa. And Colt filed for divorce while she was behind bars.

Debbie, Colt's mother, gleefully predicted that Larissa would be deported. Larissa took to social media at the time to insist that it was not true.

There are resources for people who are looking to maintain legal residency and resist deportation, and Larissa availed herself of one of them.

But she still had a trial coming up
In late May, Larissa had her assault trial. Tensions were high -- because if she were to be found guilty, her criminal record could see her deported from the US and returned to Brazil.

11. The results were ... complicated

The results were ... complicated
A number of outlets reported that Larissa had been found "guilty," but the truth wasn't quite so binary. The judge wanted to give Larissa the opportunity to demonstrate her sincerety, so she was required to pay fines, attend a fixed number of domestic violence awareness classes, and complete her community service.

12. That's not the same as a "guilty" verdict

Larissa chose to look at the classes as a learning experience, and even as an opportunity to educate her followers.

16. In fact ...

At times, it looked like she was using her classes to accuse Colt of various forms of abuse. Given their divorce agreement, she could not simply come right out and say it.

17. She learned a lot

Using leverage like shelter, money, and immigration status as a weapon against a partner is never healthy or okay.

21. She also had community service

She also had community service
Since Larissa's trial was at the end of May and June is of course Pride Month, Larissa very appropriately spent time working the trans hotline.
