Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.

The mother of the so-called "hot" felon says the only thing her son is guilty of is being good-looking.

Jeremy Meeks' mom says he had gotten away from gangs when he met his wife around six years ago, but he couldn't afford to get rid of the old gang tattoos.

She says he had been holding down a steady job for about a year when he was arrested.

Police found a gun in his car, but she says that was only for protection.
Katherine Angier says her son has woken up crying most mornings since being arrested and thrown in jail.
She also says her son's recent fame  has caused him problems in jail with other gang members.

Meeks became an overnight sensation after his mug shot was posted by police on Facebook. Women went "ga-ga" over his looks.

Even modeling agencies have reached out to him. Meeks' mom says he has gotten "many, many offers" to model and be in movies since his mugshot went public.

Meeks was arrested on weapons charges and is being held on 900-thousand dollars bail.

He is due back in court tomorrow.
