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 but has decided that she still wants a jury to hear her case as she believed the man will be ordered to marry her when they hear her side of the story.
Ades has been behind bars since May 2018 after she allegedly stalked and harassed the man for 10 months.
She also sent him text messages threatening make sushi with his kidneys and using his bones as chopsticks.
They man, a CEO of a luxury skincare company, met Ades on a dating site called Luxy.
Luxy, a millionaire matchmaker dating app, can only be accessed by those who earn more than US $200,000 a year or if they are voted in by other members based on their attractiveness.
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.
Police became involved when, while on a trip abroad, the man logged on to his surveillance system and saw Ades inside his house.
Officers responded and found Ades taking a bath in his home.
When officers asked why she was there, she said that in her head, she had made up a whole scenario where she lives with the man and so she went there to pretend it was happening.
In a recent interview Ades maintained that she still loved the man and that “you should never stop giving” even if you don’t receive.
