[MEDIA NEWS]: CALIFORNIA FELON JEREMY MEEKS W/ 'SEXY' MUGSHOT SPENT 9 YEARS IN PRISON BECAME INTERNET SENSATION: CLAIMS HE TURNED LIFE AROUND

From his jail cell, Jeremy Meeks, the ridiculously photogenic criminal, admitted that he has a criminal past he's not proud of. Meeks previously served nine years in jail for grand theft. His chiseled, blue-eyed mug went viral following his Wednesday arrest.

His baby-blue eyes may be stealing hearts, but this "sexy" suspect is a real grand theft felon.

Jeremy Meeks, the ridiculously photogenic criminal whose chiseled mugshot went viral, insists he's not a gangster — even though he once spent nine years in prison.

He gave his first interview following his Wednesday arrest to a reporter for Sacramento's KXTV.

From his jail cell, Meeks explained that he has a criminal past he's "not proud of," but he has since turned his life around.

Meeks said he used to be in a gang, but is no longer in the mob. He said he still talks to some of his former gang mates, though.

Before this week's arrest, the 30-year-old spent nine years in jail on a grand theft conviction.

Police busted Meeks and three other men during a Wednesday gang raid. He faces five weapons charges and one gang charge. His mugshot, posted on Stockton Police Department's Facebook page, has gotten more than 62,000 "likes" and thousands of flattering comments.


"Being that sexy is illegal?" one commenter wrote.

Behind bars at the California jail, Meeks had no clue his handsome mug was making so many women swoon — until a reporter told him. He was flattered and confused.

"I just want them to know that this is really not me," he told the TV station. "I'm not some kingpin."

Meanwhile, a woman who claims Meeks is her son agreed that the California man is no longer a gangster.

Katherine Angier set up a fundraising page for Meeks. As of Friday afternoon, the page has raised $388 toward its $25,000 goal.
