Remember that hot convict mugshot that was circling the web a few years back? Jeremy Meeks or “prison bae” was arrested for weapon possession in 2014, and his attractive mug shot went viral. It wasn’t just this convict cutie’s chiseled body, or his defined jawline that got everyone’s attention, his baby blue eyes are what got people talking.
The married father-of-two was released from prison in March 2016 and has since found a new career as a fashion model.
This past week Meeks made his modeling debut in the Philipp Plein show during New York fashion week. Let’s hope modeling keeps him out of jail because 2014 wasn’t his first offense. According to Mirror Magazine, “The American stud has also previously served a nine-year sentence for a felony grand theft conviction from 2002.”
Gaining almost a million Instagram followers since his picture was released, Meek’s career is on the fast track. Meeks has claimed to have “found God” since his release and shared his house arrest story as part of his plan to move forward with his life.
Hopefully the next time we see Meeks it’ll be in a head shot rather than a mug shot, and he’ll continue to confidently strut into the right direction.
