'Sexy felon' Jeremy Meeks has not been bailed out by Oprah

Jeremy Meeks is still behind bars, despite rumors to the contrary.

Described as the "sexy felon" by some online, Meeks is being held in San Joaquin County Jail on $1.1 million bail. He was arrested June 19 on weapons charges during a sweep in the Weston Ranch area of Stockton.

Meeks' mugshot went viral last week after it generated thousands of comments on the Stockton Police Department Facebook page, many from women claiming to admire his good looks.

That attention led to an online rumor this week that Meeks' bail had been paid by Oprah Winfrey. The rumor is false: state and county websites show that Meeks is still in jail. While his mugshot has been seen by millions, a "Free Jeremy Meeks" GoFundMe page for his defense has only raised $4,500 of its $25,000 goal.

Here's Meeks' status according to the San Joaquin County Sheriff's website:

Stockton approves funding for high-tech crime fighting tool

Stockton City Council members approved the city's annual budget of more than $620 million during its meeting Tuesday night.

The Stockton Police Department budget was allotted funding for a high-tech tool that finds where gun shots are fired. It's called Shot Spotters. It starts with sensors that are placed in high crime areas to help detect gunfire.

Once there's gunfire, Shot Spotter sensors on top of buildings and utility poles can locate shots fired within 5 to 10 feet. The program will cost the city $100,000 to cover and operate within 2-square miles.

"$100,000 to help an entire community is worth it," Stockton Mayor Anthony Silva said.

Some taxpayers are all for public safety, but want city leaders to be fiscally responsible.

Then there's Tepa Taqueria, Zapszone (laser tag), the Friends of the Library (used bookstore) and the P 2000 superstore.
