By Ryan Naumann

“90 Day Fiancé” star Paul Staehle’s criminal past is being looked at closer after his recent battle with his estranged wife Karine Martins.

A 2017 Starcasm article started making the rounds on social media following the recent drama. The outlet reported on Paul’s lengthy criminal history before appearing on “90 Day Fiancé.”

Back in 2014, Paul was found guilty of felony arson, which he spoke about on the recent season. Paul committed 2nd degree arson along with “burning personal property to defraud insurer.”

The outlet found a 2007 arrest where Paul was accused of violating an emergency protective order.

As The Blast previously reported, Karine recently called the police on Paul asking for help to leave the home.

Once police arrived, Paul started recording the incident on Instagram Live. Paul told the officers Karine was free to leave but accused her of cheating on him.

He told police that Karine had an open case with Child Protective Services. Paul previously called CPS on Karine accusing her of drinking around their son. After the incident Karine obtained a restraining order against Paul. In the petition, she accused Paul of controlling her life and refusing to let her leave. She also claimed Paul had sexual assaulted her multiple times.


Karine wrote on social media, “All this past days I had a lot going on. As the media showed, I had issues where the police was called because I feared for my life and my son’s life which led me to ask for help and ultimately be rescued from an environment that no longer was healthy for none of us involved in the situation.”

She added, “Relationships are hard and sometimes it just can’t be fixed anymore. I need this time to organize my thoughts, work on myself and care for my son after everything have been through in the last year and half. Just to clarify, the EPO was me, I had help from a translator since I do not speak English. I also would like to state that I’m not missing. The police knows where to find me if they need me. This is a legal matter not a “media matter”. That being said it’s the first and last time I will speak about it.”
