Phoenix woman accused of harassing man with 159K texts, threatening to turn his kidneys into sushi, says its ‘ridiculous’ she’s in jail

Westlake Legal Group woman Phoenix woman accused of harassing man with 159K texts, threatening to turn his kidneys into sushi, says its ‘ridiculous’ she’s in jail Matt Richardson fox-news/us/us-regions/southwest/arizona fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc fbe07651-c35c-5cde-b429-b535de72d305 article

A Phoenix woman accused of harassing a man with more than 150,000 text messages — in one, she threatened to turn his kidneys into sushi — reportedly thinks its “ridiculous” that she’s been jailed for the alleged actions.

“I can’t believe that it turned into this. I can’t believe that I’m actually in jail over some text messages,” Jacqueline Ades said in an interview with The Arizona Republic.

Ades reportedly met the unidentified Paradise Valley man via Luxy, a dating site for millionaires. The two went on one date, but Ades allegedly became infatuated and continued to pursue him. However, the man, said to be the CEO of a skin care products company, was not interested in a relationship.

He reportedly called police in July 2017 when he discovered Ades parked outside his home. After the call, Ades allegedly started sending him threatening texts including one that stated, “I’d wear ur [your] fascia n [and] the top o [of] fur skull n ur hands n feet,” according to The Arizona Republic.

“I’d make sushi outta ur kidneys and chopsticks outta ur hand bones,” another text read.

But in the recent interview with the outlet, Ades said she was just playing around.

“I said, ‘If I had a perverted imagination, what would I think?'” Ades said. “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.”

Ades has been in a Maricopa County jail for nearly a year following the initial allegations. She’s pleaded not guilty to criminal trespassing and stalking, but in March was determined to be mentally incompetent during a Rule 11 hearing to evaluate her mental status.

She told The Arizona Republic that she was eager to go to trial, adding that she was not only confident that she would be freed, but that she’d also be reunited with 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 said of the jury.

In the interview, she also claimed to have once been kidnapped by Walt Disney. The deceased illustrator, she said, once flew a spaceship and was a member of the Illuminati.

“Does that sound crazy?” Ades asked. “It sounds like I’m crazy. 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.”

A trial scheduled for early April was delayed, her lawyer said, in order to continue to work on restoring her mental competency. Ades will have a hearing next in the Maricopa County Superior Court on May 21.

Wendy Williams is moving on with her life in record time.

The talk show host, 54, has already cut her estranged husband’s name from “The Wendy Williams Show“‘s end credits just one day after he was fired.

Kevin Hunter was removed as an executive producer and now only Wendy’s name remains. She also referred to herself as a “single woman” while speaking to her audience members during Friday’s show.

“Kevin Hunter is no longer an executive producer on the ‘Wendy Williams Show,’” a spokesperson for her show told Page Six. “Debmar-Mercury [the production studio] wishes him well in his future endeavors.”

WENDY WILLIAMS’ ESTRANGED HUSBAND KEVIN HUNTER SPEAKS OUT ON DIVORCE: ‘I APOLOGIZE TO MY WIFE’

Hunter has been a part of “Wendy” since the show launched in 2008.

Williams’ moves come just a week after she filed for divorce from Hunter after almost 23 years of marriage. They share an 18-year-old son, Kevin Hunter Jr., together.

In March it was reported that Hunter had cheated on Williams and his alleged mistress had given birth to his baby.

WENDY WILLIAMS GETS CANDID ABOUT HER PAST DRUG ABUSE

Meanwhile, a source told E! News that Williams has signed a lease on a new pad in New York City and will be moving out of her sober living situation very soon.

“Addressing my sobriety, my addiction head-on has really helped me sort out every single compartment in my life,” Williams said on her show. “I have a commitment to me and my son to come out of here better, stronger and faster than ever — and by the way, I will still commit — ’cause you’ll forget about my business any moment now — I commit that the motto of this show will always be ‘their business is our business!'”

Heiress pleads guilty in NXIVM sex slave case

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Heiress pleads guilty in NXIVM sex slave case New York fox-news/us/crime fnc/us fnc Associated Press article 33466fe2-5d82-5941-b40d-518520f27c23

A wealthy heiress has pleaded guilty to charges implicating her in a sex-trafficking conspiracy case against an upstate New York self-help group.

Clare Bronfman entered the plea on Friday in federal court in Brooklyn.

The plea means the 40-year-old Bronfman will avoid going to trial early next month with Keith Raniere. He’s known as the spiritual leader of the group called NXIVM (NEHK’-see-uhm).

Prosecutors say Bronfman was bankrolling Raniere’s group at a time when he had a secret harem of sex slaves who were branded with his initials.

Sentencing is set for July 25.

Bronfman is a daughter of the late billionaire philanthropist and former Seagram chairman Edgar Bronfman Sr.

Storms in South kill girl in Florida, bring tornado threat

A strong storm system barreling through the South on Friday killed an 8-year-old girl in Florida and threatened to bring tornadoes to large parts of the Carolinas and southern Virginia.

A tree fell onto a house in Woodville, Florida, south of Tallahassee, killing the girl and injuring a 12-year-old boy, according to the Leon County Sheriff’s Office. The office said in a statement that the girl died at a hospital while the boy suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Their names weren’t immediately released.

The same storm system was blamed for the deaths a day earlier of three people in Mississippi and a woman in Alabama.

The threat on Friday shifted farther east, where tornado warnings covered parts of northeast Georgia, the Carolinas and Virginia.

The national Storm Prediction Center said 9.7 million people in the Carolinas and Virginia were at a moderate risk of severe weather. The region includes the Charlotte, North Carolina metro area.

Torrential downpours, large hail and a few tornadoes were among the hazards, the National Weather Service in Raleigh, North Carolina, warned.

Radar readings appeared to show a tornado formed in western Virginia’s Franklin County, south of Roanoke, though damage on the ground still must be assessed, said National Weather Service Meteorologist Phil Hysell. In South Carolina, authorities urged motorists to avoid part of Interstate 26 — the main artery from Upstate through Columbia and all the way to Charleston — because downed trees had left the roadway scattered with debris.

In Georgia, the storm system knocked down trees, caused flooding and cut off power to tens of thousands of people.

A tree came down on an apartment complex in an Atlanta suburb, but only one person reported a minor injury and was treated at the scene, Gwinnett County fire spokesman Capt. Tommy Rutledge told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

In Forsyth County northeast of Atlanta, three firefighters suffered minor injuries when their firetruck overturned during heavy rain and wind, Fire Department Division Chief Jason Shivers told the newspaper.

Meanwhile, hundreds of people cleaned up part of a central Mississippi town hit hard by a tornado on Thursday.

Volunteers and family members were swarming the north side of Morton, where the National Weather Service says a twister with winds as high as 132 mph (212 kph) hit a neighborhood. More than 20 homes were heavily damaged or destroyed. The town of 3,500 is about 30 miles (48 kilometers) east of Jackson.

“When it stopped, there was nothing left,” Morton resident Sharon Currie told WAPT-TV. “I was going, ‘Oh my God. My house is gone.'”

Damage from the storm system was reported in at least 24 of Mississippi’s 82 counties. Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant declared a state of emergency — the second one he has declared in less than a week due to tornadoes.

Authorities on Friday reported a third storm-related death in the state. Freddie Mobley, 63, died while helping cut a tree that had fallen on a house, Lincoln County Coroner Clay McMorris told the Daily Leader of Brookhaven. Mobley had made a few cuts on the tree and backed away when the trunk shifted before he could move, Deputy Coroner Ricky Alford said.

Two other people who were driving are being counted as storm-related deaths in Mississippi. A woman also died in Alabama when a tree fell on her mobile home Thursday.

Embattled US Rep. Ilhan Omar tweets ‘happy Passover’

U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar is wishing “happy Passover” to Jews commemorating the holiday in her home state of Minnesota and around the world.

Omar is a Somali American and one of the first Muslims elected to Congress. She’s been criticized for remarks in recent months on Israel, Jewish influence in Washington, and 9/11 that have drawn accusations of anti-Semitism and insensitivity. She says criticizing the Israeli government is not anti-Semitic.

In a tweet Friday, Omar said, “The story of Passover has resonated with and given hope to so many Jewish families in times of oppression.”

She also gave a traditional Hebrew Passover greeting.

Omar says she’s faced increased death threats since President Donald Trump spread a video that purports to show her being dismissive of the 2001 terrorist attacks.

President Trump’s 2020 campaign announced Friday that it had raised more than $1 million since Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia report was made public a day earlier.

“The biggest takeaway for the campaign was that President Trump — once again — was completely exonerated of the ludicrous Russia collusion allegations and was again found not to have obstructed the special counsel’s investigation,” Trump’s campaign COO, Michael Glassner, said in a statement. “The two-year lie was put to bed once and for all. It was a great day for the campaign and Americans responded enthusiastically.”

TRUMP CAMPAIGN GOES ON POST-MUELLER ATTACK AGAINST ‘OBAMA-ERA DOJ AND FBI,’ WARNS ‘JUSTICE WILL BE SERVED’

“The release of the full Mueller report directly led to the campaign raising more than $1 million,” he said. “Relative to our recent daily average, the Mueller news drove a 250 percent increase in fundraising from grassroots donors.”

The White House and the 2020 Trump campaign declared victory on Thursday after the report landed, pointing to its conclusion that investigators found no evidence of collusion and did not conclude that a crime was committed on the question of obstruction of justice.

However, it did contain a number of embarrassing details for the White House that were considered as part of the obstruction inquiry. It was apparently those details that led Trump to brand it the “Crazy Mueller Report” on Friday.

Trump’s campaign used the lack of evidence of collusion to go on the attack against those in the FBI and DOJ they believe instigated the two-year probe in the first place, saying it was “time to turn the tables” in a campaign video. That language was repeated by Trump on Friday, who called the report a big, fat, waste of time, energy and money” in a tweet.

“It is now finally time to turn the tables and bring justice to some very sick and dangerous people who have committed very serious crimes, perhaps even Spying or Treason,” he said. “This should never happen again!”

Donna Brazile: Obama did ‘everything he could’ to prevent Russian meddling

Westlake Legal Group og-fox-news Donna Brazile: Obama did 'everything he could' to prevent Russian meddling Sam Dorman fox-news/world/world-regions/russia fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/person/barack-obama fox-news/columns/fox-news-first fox news fnc/politics fnc article 2a901044-e615-5307-9774-e89c59cbad89

Fox News contributor Donna Brazile defended former President Barack Obama on Friday as he faced criticism for his response to Russian meddling during the 2016 election.

“I think they did everything they could without sounding all of the alarm bells,” she said of Obama’s administration. The subject came up as Fox News host Dana Perino asked Brazile on “The Daily Briefing” about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report — something Brazile said should be a “wake-up call” due to its troubling findings about Russian interference.

If Obama did more on Russian meddling, she said, critics would have accused him of trying to help his former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, in her race against then-candidate Donald Trump.

KIMBERLEY STRASSEL: MUELLER’S REPORT SPEAKS VOLUMES

“He was in a box,” Brazile said of Obama. “Perhaps President Trump is in a box,” she added, before calling for action to prevent future meddling. Her comments came as the Obama administration faced renewed scrutiny over spying on the Trump campaign.

Mueller’s investigation did not find sufficient evidence to formally accuse Trump’s campaign of collusion, although it contained details about activity related to that issue.

During an earlier interview on “Outnumbered,” Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., defended the former president, saying that he shouldn’t have to apologize, given Mueller’s findings. Mueller’s report, he said, “laid out a multiplicity of contacts between the Trump campaign and Russians.”

Fox News Chief National Correspondent Ed Henry, who joined Brazile on “The Daily Briefing” panel Friday, indicated that Democrats should give Trump associates credit for not taking Russian “bait.” “Where’s the credit for the Trump folks who didn’t take the bait? I mean, we’ve heard for two years that they did,” he said.

KELLYANNE CONWAY, AFTER MUELLER REPORT’S RELEASE, SAYS PRESS APOLOGIES ARE IN ORDER

Brazile countered that the Trump campaign “exploited” information from Wikileaks, an organization with suspected ties to Russia, to create a “false narrative.”

“Every day, the Trump campaign would get the Wikileaks information; they would blast it. He used it in his daily rallies and daily meetings,” Brazile said.

Brazile, who served as interim Democratic National Committee chair during the election, backed away from making any determination about whether her party should pursue impeaching the president.

That question arose after Mueller’s report stopped short of accusing Trump of obstructing justice, but highlighted 10 items that were concerning in relation to that issue.

“I think it’s premature to talk about what the next step is,” she said. “Before we can move into what I call the impeachment gear, perhaps we should just dive into this report,” she added.

While congressional Democrats have already pushed for more information regarding the investigation, the party as a whole seemed hesitant about impeachment. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., has quashed the idea on multiple occasions but newcomers — like Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., — have thrown their weight behind impeaching the president. Like Brazile, DNC Chair Tom Perez appeared to sidestep impeachment questions on Thursday and said it was unclear whether or not obstruction occurred.

A Texas cold case squad on Friday released an old handwritten letter that could solve a 17-year-old girl’s brutal murder 45 years ago.

The short letter refers to the Carla Walker homicide in February 1974 in Fort Worth. Police said the girl was beaten, raped, strangled and tortured after being abducted from a bowling alley parking lot. Detectives found her body three days after the abduction.

“(Blank) kild (sic) Carla Walker in Benbrook,” says the undated note to a homicide detective with the Fort Worth Police Department.

It also says, “P.S. It is hard to say but it is true.”

Before and after the postscript, the letter says “Sign 10100,” which investigators believe is police code for dead body, the Dallas Morning News reports.

“The author of this letter is encouraged to come forward and speak with detectives about his or her knowledge of the murder,” police said in a news release announcing the disclosure of the letter. “It is the hope of the Fort Worth Police Department that this person will provide valuable information that may bring peace and closure to Carla’s family after 45 long years.”

PENNSYLVANIA MAN, 76, CHARGED WITH KILLING WIFE WHO VANISHED IN 1981

It’s unclear when the letter was written but the letter’s recipient retired in 1976, according to reports.

Carla’s boyfriend was knocked unconscious when she was abducted, the paper reported.

“She was such a sweet girl,” Rodney McCoy told a local news station last year, according to the paper. “I remember we were in the front seat of the car. Her back was against the passenger door. She was falling out. I went to grab her, and he started beating me over the head with a pistol.”

Former U.S. Attorney Guy Lewis, who served with Attorney General William Barr at the Justice Department under President George H.W. Bush, defended Barr against accusations he misled Congress in connection with the Mueller report, saying he wouldn’t “violate his oath.”

Lewis described Barr as “a fine man” on “America’s Newsroom” on Friday. “He’s an honorable man. He crosses t’s, he dots i’s. He is not the kind of guy that would come in there and violate his oath and do the kind of things that Jerry Nadler’s accusing him of.”

HOUSE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE ISSUES SUBPOENA FOR ‘COMPLETE AND UNREDACTED’ MUELLER REPORT

Lewis made the statements in reaction to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler’s push for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “complete and unredacted” Russia report. Nadler and other Dems say Barr has misled Congress and the public on President Trump’s behalf.

Nadler, D-N.Y., issued a subpoena Friday to obtain the “complete and unredacted” version of Mueller’s report, as well as the underlying materials.

On “Good Morning America” on Friday Nadler said, “Barr has revealed himself as an agent of the president, not the attorney general of the entire American people.”

In response, Lewis said, “I don’t buy it one bit.”

He added, “You look at the report. Look at the Mueller report. Look at what Barr was actually saying in his four-page letter of a few weeks ago. It tracks very, very closely.”

“This isn’t just Barr who’s coming out, pulling this stuff out of the air. He’s got a team of dedicated professionals, lawyers. [Deputy Attorney General] Rod Rosenstein also participated.

“All of this represents their collective best judgment.”

MUELLER REPORT IGNITES NEW DEM BATTLE OVER IMPEACHMENT

Lewis said he was “not surprised” by Nadler’s subpoena, which reminded him of the “old days” when he was trying cases as a prosecutor.

“There was nothing, frankly nothing you could do that would fully please the other side,” said Lewis.

Lewis also weighed in Friday on Barr’s determination there was not sufficient evidence on the obstruction front, even though Special Counsel Robert Mueller did not reach a conclusion on whether President Trump committed this offense.

“In truth, this was Barr’s ultimate decision,” said Lewis. “I mean, you’ve got Mueller, who is the special prosecutor. He is appointed and still works under the auspices of the office of the Department of Justice, so it’s Barr’s ultimate decision here.”

Louisiana man gets jail time for threatening President Trump

A Louisiana man has been sentenced to three years and 10 months in federal prison for making threats against President Donald Trump.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Baton Rouge says 63-year-old Henry Rayborn, of Baton Rouge, was sentenced Wednesday.

A federal complaint filed in March 2018 says Rayborn made threats against the president while hospitalized in Baton Rouge. Rayborn had been taken there after police found him lying down in a public street.

Court records say Rayborn told an investigating U.S. Secret Service agent that he “heard voices in his head saying kill Trump.” Rayborn was later found mentally competent to face the charges. He pleaded guilty in October to making a threat against the president.

After serving his prison sentence he will serve three years of supervised release.
