Jailed Jacob Lusk Had Probation Cut to Appear on American Idol!

Filed under : Celebrity News

American Idol hopeful Jacob Lusk served jail time for riding on an LA train without purchasing a ticket. Also, the probation he got for failing to attend court was cut short especially for him to be able to participate in “American Idol”.

In February 2009, Lusk was given a ticket for illegally riding a train. He didn’t turn up to court to answer the charge so a warrant was issued for his arrest. He was still a wanted man when he began his “American Idol” journey last year. Then, he was stopped for a traffic violation and subsequently arrested in November 2010 when the police officer discovered his outstanding warrant.

Lusk pleaded no contest to illegally riding the train and served three days in jail. He was also sentenced to two years probation. However, he later learned he would have to withdraw from the “American Idol” competition if he remained on probation.

Rather than sucking it up and withdrawing, Jacob Lusk appealed against his sentence and somehow convinced the judge to terminate the probation so he could pursue his musical dream.

Since being on the show, Lusk has wowed the “American Idol” judges with his soulful and passionate performances such as “God Bless the Child”.

His faith and genuine emotion have made his performances popular and memorable but it’s not a secret that I’m no Jacob Lusk fan. And finding out he had dodged a probation (which should not have ended until the middle of this year) has done nothing to make me a Jacob Lusk fan.

  1. “Steven Tyler’s Secret Past” is an absolute must read. This just released true to life non-fiction thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat taking you into the dark world of Steven Tyler, the Mafia bosses who managed his career, and the very strange tactics used to deploy Aerosmith to the top of the worlds rock and roll scene. It’s a story of struggle and hardship, and overcoming great odds against enemies who’d stop at nothing to get their way. A few simple mistakes at the beginning of his career and Steven was in over his head caught between the CIA and his own Sicilian roots.
