Jessica Sierra used racist, anti-gay slurs after arrest and faces 11 years in prison

After American Idol 4 finalist Jessica Sierra’s arrest on Saturday, she used racial and anti-gay slurs; vomited repeatedly, including in a police cruiser; and offered to perform sex acts on the arresting officers.

During her drive to jail, Jessica said, “Please don’t take me to jail, I’ll suck your dick if you don’t take me to jail.” When she was turned down, Jessica said, “Fuck you, nigger.” That’s according to the police report, published by The Smoking Gun, and first uncovered by the MJ Morning Show.

Jessica also threw up in an officer’s car and at various other points, and told a female cop, “You fucking bitch, I’ll kick your ass. I’ll fuck you up, you whore.” And she told a male police officer, “You’re a dick-sucking faggot.”

She’ll appear in court Thursday, and during her initial appearance on these charges Sunday, the judge told her, “You’re looking at 11 years and 60 days possibly in prison. Obviously, the bar scene isn’t working out for you. I’d suggest you find another form of entertainment.” The judge she’ll face Thursday, Daniel Perry, “likes to show his track record, a bar graph that shows a huge red bar, representing how many folks he’s sent to prison in the last month,” Tampa Bay’s FOX affiliate reports.

Marriage At First Sight

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
