You may remember a while back that we told you the story of Jacqueline Ades, who stands accused of sending a man 159,000 messages and breaking into his house after the pair went on only one date.
Well, she's given a new interview and she still doesn't know why she is being held in the jail. On top of that, she actually wants to go to trial and believes that if she does, the jury will have no choice but to find her not guilty and order the man she is accused of harassing to marry her.
That's a lot to take in.
Ades spoke with the Arizona Republic, a local newspaper in the US, and said that she can't honestly believe that she has been held in jail since May 2018, since she was charged.

A lot of the text messages that she allegedly sent over a ten-month period are pretty intense. In fact, some of them said things like: "I'd make sushi outta ur kidneys n chopsticks outta ur hand bones."
Other highlights included 'oh what would I do w ur blood! Id wanna bathe in it' and 'don't ever try to leave me... I'll kill you'.
Wow. That's even more to take in.
It gets worse. When the police eventually caught up with Ades, she was in the bath at this poor guy's house. She told the paper: "I just think it's ridiculous.
"I can't believe that it turned into this. I can't believe that I'm actually in jail over some text messages."
She claims that the man was responding to her advances for a few months after the initial date and that the things she is alleged to have said were jokes.
She continued: "I said, 'If I had a perverted imagination, what would I think?'
"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."
At a hearing in March, Ades was found to be mentally incompetent. According to her lawyer, she also could already be out, but rejected a plea deal that would have seen her accept time served, 10 years of probation, and being banned from contacting the alleged victim.
However, she's keen for a trial. She says that she at first didn't think the plea bargain was real, then continued: "They're [the jury] going to say, 'You're not guilty and on top of it we, like, demand that you two get married.'"
Her next hearing is scheduled to take place on 21 May.
