Flint native "American Idol" finalist facing jail

Jail Cell
Jail Cell

FLINT (WKZO) -- A Flint native who was an “American Idol” finalist in 2007 has 60 days to come up with money to pay her father’s nursing home bills or head to jail.

LaKisha Jones was convicted of contempt of court Tuesday in Genesee County and was removed by the court as the legal guardian of her father. He suffered a stroke in June 2012 and was kicked out of a nursing home due to unpaid bills.

Jones contends the nursing home was working with her on payments and sued her after she complained about the treatment he was receiving.
