90 Day Fiance‘s Jay Smith will appear in court to determine the final outcome of his latest charges. Ashley Martson had him arrested for breaching a PFA (Protection From Abuse) order. A lot has gone down in the last few weeks regarding Jay Smith’s legal status to remain in the United States. Will the outcome of this latest hearing be the nail in the coffin of his American dream?
90 Day Fiance: Jay Smith to Appear in Court
According to official Cumberland County court records, Conroy St. Christopher Smith (Jay) will appear in court to answer to a pair of charges. The first is violating a PFA, and the second is contempt for violating the order and/or agreement. Since his arrest, the Jamaican 90 Day Fiance star was transferred to ICE custody. And, his future in America depends on the result of this hearing.
Ashley Martson called the police on Jay Smith following a post on his Instagram where he threatened to expose Ashley’s secrets. In addition. Jay, said the PFA couldn’t stop him, but the Protection from Abuse order specifically said the 90 Day Fiance alum could not post things about Ashley on social media. As a result of this, police took him into custody. The social media post allegedly violated the order. Following that, ICE picked him up from the local lock up and the deportation chatter escalated.
Interestingly, a female friend of Jay’s claims the initial charges relating to the online incident were dropped, but that has not been verified. It may be a moot point since Immigration and Customs Enforcement has him in custody.
90 Day Fiance: Ashley Martson Targeted By Jay’s Sister
With her brother in custody, Jay Smith’s sister went in on Ashley Martson and aired dirty laundry all over social media. Jay’s sibling exposed everything from alleged GoFundMe fraud to a rumored sugar daddy and reported cheating on Jay. Unlike 90 Day Fiance cast members that sign non-disclosure agreements, Ornella “Poochie” Smith claimed she had nothing to lose by coming forward with the boiling hot tea.
The 90 Day Fiance couple have been the target of frauding allegations for some time now. There’s an overall level of distrust among the 90 Day Fiance fan base when it comes to this pair. So, everything Poochie let slip is speculation. Yet plenty of 90 Day Fiance followers buy it. At the very least, it added more fuel to the fire amid Jay Smith’s arrest and detainment.
What’s Next for the Jamaican Tattoo Artist?
A lot happened since ICE picked up Jay. A woman claiming to be Jay’s friend started a GoFundMe campaign to help “free” him from immigration detention. Currently, the campaign has over $4,000 of its $5,000 goal. There’s definitely a divide among 90 Day Fiance viewers when it comes to Team Ashley or Team Jay. It seems the GFM funds will go towards legal fees to help him stay in the country.
Right now, everything is riding on the outcome of this hearing. Whether Jay Smith is deported or gets to remain on American soil will be determined there. This is definitely a situation to watch. Be sure to come back to Soap Dirt for more on this developing story.
