*Someone please explain how can a man (Jeremy Meeks) be considered “one of the most violent criminals” in Stockton, California and get many generous donations for his bail?!
Oh yeah, that’s right. He’s hot! Meeks has been receiving much “love” for his piercing blue eyes and chiseled jaw line ever since his mug shot went viral last Wednesday.
And apparently, his admirers can’t get enough because they are helping in efforts to post bail for the “dreamy hunk.”
Meeks’ mother, Katherine Angier, has been fundraising to get her son out of prison with the online campaign, “Free Jeremy Meeks.”
His bail is set for $1 million, and due to the help others in awe of him, his efforts are more than off the ground.
But although he believes he’s a good guy, he’s not considered one of the wrongfully accused.
He’s in prison on five weapon charges and one gang charge.
Nevertheless, his campaign has raised more $4,000 (and growing) of its $25,000 goal — meaning his mother believes he’s a good guy too. Well, she is his mother after all.
“He has a job and … He was on his way to work. With no gang affiliations as per two of the charges,” Angier wrote on his fundraising page. “He has old tattoos..which causes him to be stereotyped. He’s my son and I’m just trying to raise funds to help him in anyway. Please help him to get a fair trial or else he’ll be railroaded.”
But let’s see how much longer Meeks and his mother can capitalized off of his new fame.
