Remember the so-called hot convict, Jeremy Meeks, who made headlines for his good looks displayed on one of the most famous mug shots ever? He’s apparently preparing to become a model after he’s released from prison.
Yes, a model. The good looking felon became an instant sensation when his mug shot was posted by the Stockton, California, police department on Facebook, and the image went viral. We’re obviously still talking about the guy and what will happen to him after he leaves prison.
The hot convict has things going on, and since he became famous thanks to the Internet, he will take advantage of the opportunity to change his life around and try for a modeling career. His case has been controversial because many people believe Meeks has been getting too much attention, and everyone is forgetting that he was convicted of a felony.
According to ABC News, Meeks was sentenced to 27-months in prison several weeks ago on weapon charges, but hopes for a November release based on time served and good behavior.
The married California man has big plans for the future, and is currently working with Jim Jordan of White Cross Management. With plenty of time on his hands, the future model is working hard at being ripped.
“I’m in a place where I will be able to provide for my family and really change my life. I never thought that everyone in the world would recognize me for my looks, so I feel extremely blessed and very thankful.”
“I eat healthy. I do a lot of push-ups, pull-ups, dips, burpees, and I stay very active.”
Jeremy Meeks would also like to pursue a career in acting to take full advantage of his reputation as the hot convict. He would love to star in a show similar to Sons of Anarchy. Jordan says he has a lot of job possibilities.
“There is a sea of opportunities waiting for him with modeling agencies around the world, endorsement deals and reality show interests.”
So what was Meeks thinking when the Stockton police snapped the mug shot seen around the world? Not about modeling, but his family.
“I was just thinking about missing my family,” the hot convict told ABC. “I was really thinking about my son a lot at that moment, that was the only thing that was on my mind.”
Like it or not, Jeremy Meeks has become somewhat of a rock star and even gets fan mail in prison.
“I’ve got a lot of support my family, my friends, and from my fans — I get hundreds and hundreds of letters every month. I’m very thankful for all the support I’ve been getting.” the hot convict commented.
