VIRAL MUGSHOT: 'Handsome' criminal speaks out from jail
Fri, 20 Jun 2014 16:40:55 GMT — CNN -- Apparently it's not always what's on the inside that counts....at least to some.
A convicted felon in California is getting a lot of love online for his GQ looks, not his crimes.
Jeremy Meeks, 30, was arrested in Stockton, Calif., on Wednesday and the convicted felon's new mugshot has a lot of women swooning.
The police department's page has more than 24,000 likes and more than 6,000 comments.
Some are leaving comments saying they would go "50 shades" on him while others are reprimanding women by telling them to "have some self respect."
In fact, Meeks only agreed to the CNN interview in order to tell his side of the story.
Meeks said that even though he's being charged with street terrorism, he's no longer a gangster. He's spent nine years in prison for grand theft, and he was allegedly caught with a gun.
