An Arizona woman accused of stalking a man she went on one date with, allegedly sending him 159,000 text messages and breaking into his home multiple times, wants to go to trial so a jury will not only find her innocent of the charges, but also so they'll force her victim to marry her.
Jacqueline Claire Ades, 33, has been jailed without bail since last May. She has pleaded not guilty to charges of stalking and criminal trespassing. She was found mentally incompetent to stand trial last month. A judge delayed her trial earlier this month by at least 60 days in order to give psychologists a chance to restore her competency.
She spoke to the Arizona Republic during her mental health evaluation, but before she was found incompetent. It was then she told them of her bizarre hope for wedding bells at the end of her trial.
"They're going to say, 'You're not guilty and on top of it we, like, demand that you two get married,'" she told the publication.
Ades also said she can't believe she's still in jail.
“I can’t believe that it turned into this,” Ades said. “I can’t believe that I’m actually in jail over some text messages.”
Ades, a licensed esthetician, reportedly she met the unidentified Paradise Valley man through Luxy, an online dating site geared toward matching millionaires with "pretty girls," Ades told several Phoenix media outlets last year, including Arizona Family.
She allegedly sent her one-time-date, a skincare product CEO, the texts over a 10-month period. Amongst the more bizarre and threatening alleged messages were texts that told the victim she'd "make sushi outta ur kidneys n chopsticks outta ur hand bones" and "I'd wear ur fascia n the top of ur skull n ur hands n feet,” according to Arizona Republic.
Ades didn’t just allegedly harass the man over text.
Police say she also broke into his home twice, once in July 2017 which resulted in her getting escorted off his property and another time in April 2018, just a month before her arrest, an Arizona Republic story from January reported. Officers allegedly found Ades taking a bath in his home. She allegedly brought food, a bottle of wine and her two small dogs. An 8-inch butcher knife was allegedly discovered in her car. Ades was arrested after the second incident.
She told the Arizona Republic that the texts were mere jokes and also a response to a fight she had with her mother.
"I said, 'If I had a perverted imagination, what would I think?' " Ades explained. "And then I wrote all these weird things. Just, like, I was literally playing with my imagination and it turned out that that scared him."
