The mother of 30-year-old felon from California Jeremy Meeks, who gained immense popularity among women all over the world after police published his photo on Facebook, plans to capitalize on her son's fame. Catherine Angier intends to raise $25,000.
The woman plans to spend this amount on a "fair trial" for their son. "Everyone thinks Jeremy is a criminal, but he's my son, and I can say that he is a great man. Jeremy has no links with thugs, he was arrested on his way to work," wrote Catherine Angier on the website that she created to raise funds for her son Jeremy. The woman published photos of Meeks with a small child in his arms and asked Internet users to donate as much as they could for her son. For the time being, Angier has been able to collect about $4,000.
However, police have absolutely different information on Jeremy Meeks, who was arrested for possession of firearms and ammunition. According to police, Jeremy Meeks is one of the most dangerous criminals in California. In addition, the man had previously been brought to criminal liability for a similar offense. Meeks can be released on 900,000-dollar bail.
Meanwhile, three communities dedicated to Jeremy have opened on Facebook. Each of them has several tens of thousands of people. The fans post photos of the "sexy felon" and make fun collages with his pictures. Noteworthy, Jeremy Meeks is married and has two children. According to Fox6, his wife is furious about the unexpected popularity of her husband.
