COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- "I'm so embarrassed because he's such a good kid his whole life and we don't even know these things about him."
The mother of 24 year old Jose Espinal Mejia didn't want to show her face but tells only WINK News, her entire family is in shock after her son was arrested Tuesday for exposing himself inside this Walmart on Collier Boulevard.
"If I know before something, you know, I would do something about it, but he never said anything, never."
According to the arrest report, since January there were three separate incidents involving Espinal Mejia. The first happened on January 7th. An underage victim told detectives he had seen the penis of a man near the cosmetics section. Two weeks later, the parents of another child reported to Walmart managers, a man had touched their child in the bathroom. Then on February 15, a third parent caught Espinal Mejia on his hands and knees, looking under a restroom stall at a boy.
"I went to court today and I hear all these things."
The suspect's mother is apologizing to the victims and their parents.
"I'm sorry, what else I can say, you know, its not enough. I'm sorry."
And she wants her son to stay locked up.
"The only thing I said, if they can keep him over there the rest of his life, I'm not gonna do anything. He's gonna be 25 years old, you know, he should think what he was doing wasn't right."
