Woman who sent man 159,000 texts after a single date thinks jury will force them to marry

Jacqueline Ades allegedly sent 159,000 text messages to a man and broke into his home after they went on a single date

An Arizona woman who allegedly sent 159,000 text messages to a man and broke into his home after they went on a single date believes a jury will find her innocent. 

Jacqueline Ades was found mentally incompetent to stand trial in March. But she wants a jury to hear her case, believing they will even order her to marry the man. 

‘They’re going to say, “You’re not guilty and on top of it we, like, demand that you two get married,”‘ Ades told The Arizona Republic in a new jailhouse interview. 

Ades has been behind bars at the Maricopa County Estrella Jail since May 2018 after she allegedly stalked and harassed the man for 10 months. 

She sent him threatening text messages including one that read: ‘I’d make sushi outta ur kidneys n chopsticks outta ur hand bones (sic)’. 

Another one read: ‘Oh what would I do w ur blood! Id wanna bathe in it’. 

Ades and the man, who has only been identified as the CEO of a company that sells skincare and spa products, met on a dating site.

She claimed that the pair met on Luxy, an online dating service that calls itself the ‘best luxury millionaire matchmaker dating app’. 

Authorities said Ades and the man chatted on the site for a few days and then went on one date. 

Although the man told Ades he did not want to see her again, she allegedly began texting him incessantly – sometimes up to 500 times a day. In July 2017, she parked outside of his house. 

In April 2018, the man – who was out of the country – called police and said surveillance video showed that Ades was inside his home. 

Officers found Ades taking a bath in his home. When officers asked why she was there, she began referring to scientific equations. 

‘I guess that I made up a whole scenario in my head where I live here, so I came here and pretended that’s what was happening,’ she told them.

Officers also found a large butcher knife in her car at the time.    

After she failed to appear to multiple court hearings, Ades was arrested the following month. 

On the way to prison, she told officers: ‘He said to me, “Go away” for the last 16 months. And I couldn’t, because the more I loved him, the more I learned [about] the secrets of the universe.’

Ades also told the Republic that she had been abducted by Walt Disney, who she said is a member of the Illuminati with his own spaceship. 

‘Does that sound crazy? It sounds like I’m crazy,’ she said. ‘My mom says, “They’re going to put you back in Rule 11 court if you go around telling people.” But this is a true story – I’m not lying.’ 

Matthew Leathers, Ades’ attorney, requested a Rule 11 hearing in January after she turned down a plea deal.

The deal would have allowed Ades to be released from prison with time served. She would have been on probation for 10 years and forbidden from contacting the man. 

But Ades, who has pleaded not guilty to charges of stalking and criminal trespassing, refused the deal, claiming she thought that it wasn’t real and that the man was ‘testing her resolve’. 

Leathers said two of three mental health professionals who met with Ades found her mentally incompetent to stand trial but restorable. One ruled that she was mentally competent. 

An appointed psychologist is now meeting with Ades in prison in an attempt to restore her to competency. They must ensure she understands the charges against her and can assist in her own defense.

The psychologist has 21 months to either restore Ades to competency – allowing her case to go back to trial – or deem her not restorable. 

Ades’ case will be dismissed without prejudice if she is found not to be restorable. She could then be committed to a mental institution, appointed a legal guardian, or could be released. 

‘I just think it’s ridiculous, 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 has continued to claim that her threatening text messages were just jokes. 

‘I said, “If I had a perverted imagination, what would I think?’ she added. ‘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.’ 

While Ades believes there is no way the jury would find her guilty, she said she would be fine with staying in prison if they do. 

She also claimed that she wouldn’t contact the man if she was released from prison, because she believes he would contact her himself. 

Ades’ next hearing is scheduled for May 21.
